Our Jakarta accommodation is placed throughout the city, making it easier to explore the various attractions in the region; whether it be the many museums, art markets, antique fairs, or the widely varying cuisine. In fact, one of Indonesia’s most famous landmarks, the National Monument or "Monas" can be found in Jakarta… the view from which is spectacular. Make sure that you check out our range of Jakarta hotels close to the Monas!
When staying in your Jakarta hotel, visit Setu Babakan where a colourful kaleidoscope of tradition awaits you... traditional plays, dance and puppetry, housed in tranquil settings. Or alternatively visit the old port of Sunda Kelapa, with its magnificent Makassar schooners - brightly coloured ships - transporting goods between Jakarta and the outer islands. The old town (Kota), once the hub of Dutch colonial Indonesia is reminiscent of days gone by, with its heritage sites and buildings. The sparkling night-time skyline is not something you will soon forget.
In fact, Jakarta is known by some to be one of Indonesia’s most important "designated tourist stops", with a wide range of rates, a hotel in Jakarta won’t break the bank – whatever your budget. Jakarta provides a gateway for travellers to access almost any other destination in Indonesia. As such, it is one of the transport hubs of Indonesia, with all modern means of transportation available. With many high-rises now decorating the skyline, and more luxury shopping outlets arriving, it is clear that Jakarta is certainly developing for the future, while still preserving its past. But if you want to get under the skin of Indonesia, a visit to this sprawling city is an absolute must.
