You can use transjakarta buses as a transportation, there is a bustop, very near from the guesthouse, in front of BCA Matraman, that called Matraman I bustop.
The house is great and very well located. It is certainly not in downtown, but its position is strategic for going to major points of interest Jakarta : a bus takes you directly to Ancol, or in the way to Gambir. In the other direction you can reach Taman Mini and the closest train station takes you straight to Kota Jakarta.
The room is just like the house : cosy and comfortable. I loved the presence of the plasma screen that allowed me to discover another face of Indonesia through TV shows. The air conditioner allowed me to have peaceful nights ;)
If you have the chance to get the room 1, you will be close to the kitchen with all amenities : refrigerator, hot and cold water dispenser...
The hostess is an angel. She keeps the house in immaculate condition and has had the extreme kindness of offering me to wash and iron my clothes deceived by a downpour. I hope that you will meet Nina, a gorgeous woman who speaks a very good English.
Elke was a superb host. I had to reschedule and had the pleasure to stay in her place for 11 days. She was very helpful to her max. The place is as shown and mentioned. Very conveniently located, clean, few steps to the main road. A/c, hot water, wifi etc very good. The staff and tenants are very friendly and helpful. Bourose, the caretaker is a sweet heart. Nina the translator was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone.
This was a clean and comfortable place to stay. Just follow the directions exactly to reach the place. It may be helpful to look up the landmarks and intersections beforehand so you can tell the taxi driver how to get there more easily. I would recommend this place!
Nice guesthouse' can't ask for more.
Fully equipped room with the air conditioner, flat screen television.
Great location in the secluded area but still the main road is walk away.
Will come again.
Elke's place is clean, friendly, and pretty well located. I recommend!
A well-run place with mainly young Indonesians staying. There isn't much to do in the immediate vicinity (except for the usual street food, a large book store, and a bazaar like cluster of copy shops), but transport connections are good: Two Transjakarta Lines, a Blue Bird station at the local Indomaret, and a nearby commuter line station (walkable only for the hardcore)
in the end we stayed two extranights. Elke is super helpful and the guesthouse is nice and clean. Room is enough for two people and luggage, hot water is nice and needy. I definitely recommend it. The only disadvantage might b that it is not located within the walking distance to city centre but on the other hand transjakarta buses are cheap and fun.
