This is an old Hotel that still has a little bit of luxury left in it. It is a vast complex with restaurants, lounges, travel agents and is popular with wedding receptions.
For the traveler, it offers good value in a very good location. I was able to get to lots of places with less difficulty. It is about midway to Senayan and Thamrin. At least it wasn't he ridiculously high prices of the hotels like Shang Grila and Intercontinental next door.
Directions: Along Sudirman Rd
One of the local and better facilities hotel.. comfort and located in the CBD... connected with such a good tourist trips and nice stuff..
try to choose the summit club rooms they have the swimming pool window view and in eral morning u could see the mountains surrounding the city of Jakarta.. and the greeneries everywhere ..
I stayed in Sahid Jaya in May & booked the hotel online for approximatly 513K IR. I dont have this confirmed but I was made to believe by my jakarta friend that the hotel is owned by Muslim thus it is a safe hotel to stay in. Furthurmore the price is really value for money!
Unique Quality: Price & Safety
Unfortunately, there is no middle class hotel in Jakarta's centre. You can basicly choose between the cheap and shabby Jalan Jaksa and luxury hotels all over the city. If you stay for a short period, I recommend the Sahid Jaya Hotel in the very heart of the city and with five stars but reasonable prices of about USD 40. If you know somebody in Jakarta it would be the best choice to stay with him/her.
Ask for it in the Airport's hotel desk to get the best price.
Unique Quality: Not really five stars but nice, very central and with a nice breakfast buffet.
Directions: Next to the Le Meridien Hotel and the incredible Da Vinci Tower.
Hi all, I will be visiting Jakarta with the intention of furnishing my new home with those teak and mahogany furnitures. Do you guys have any information where can I scour and shop for this type of furnitures in Jakarta? I was made to understand that there are a lot of factory in Jawa Barat, my question is how do I get to Jawa Barat? I might be staying in Jalan Jeneral Sudirman (if I'm not mistaken).
Apart from that I would also be looking for lace curtains and re upholstery fabric. Where can I get those fabric in Jakarta?
Where can I get antique stuffs for home deco in Jakarta? Also, where should I shop for pottery and ceramic there?
Last but not least, would renting an apartment for a short stay advisable in terms of rates in Jakarta?
Thanks in advance!
Jawa Barat is far from Jakarta, There are many good inter city bus services you can get from Rawamangum Bus Terminal not very far from Jalan Sudirman.
to Solo and Jogjakarta
For Antiques you must visit Jalan Surabaya Central Jakarta (near Italian Embassy) this street is full of stuffs like Antiques and Oriental Decoration pieces.
Renting apartment for short period would be so expensive, usually they take minimum 6 monts contract. It will be much better if you take furnished room in a boarding house in Setia Budi Area (also on Jalan Sudirman) opposit to Hotel Sahid or Le Meridian. May cost around 1 million IDR per month for a room with attached bath and air con.
As I know in north Kemang Area there are some furniture stores or you can go to furniture stores in Ciputat (nearby Lebak Bulus)
Good luck with your hunting
Hi, Explore & Rini, thank you so much for the information and advice. Cheers, Anis.
1. Transport to Bandung - use travel shuttle. Cost about IDR 50,000/pax.
2. Lace curtains and upholstery fabric - try Fatmawati area.
3. Antique stuffs - Kemang area or Jalan Surabaya Area. Be cautious of fake antiques and outrageous opening bid price when you opt to shop at Jalan Surabaya.
4. Pottery and ceramic - sorry, don't have any good advise on this
5. Apartment? Only a few of the serviced apartment has arrangement for short stayes. You might want to try those that linked to hotel chain such as Aston Apartment.
