Enjoy the cosiness of an apartment, while experiencing the luxury of an upmarket hotel. Located in Gatot Subroto, the downtown area of Jakarta, this brand new 2-bedroom gem is equipped for both work and leisure.
The living room has cable TV, 15Mbps wifi, a free minibar, water dispenser (hot, cold & room temperature) and adjoins a fully-equipped kitchen. There is no washing machine, but a pick-up laundry service is available in the building.
The master bedroom features a King-size bed; the guest bedroom a Queen-size bed. Both are made up with the highest quality 100% Egyptian cotton sheets. There is plenty of room for storing clothes.
Facilities include 24-hour security, an outdoor swimming pool, a kids' pool, a childrens’ play area, a well-equipped gym, a mini market, a Padang restaurant, Pizza Hut etc.
The newly developed apartment complex is situated in Jakarta's Golden Triangle. Its location is unique in that it is minutes away from the CBD - with Mega Kuningan, the exciting new Ciputra World 1 mall and Planet Hollywood all within walking distance - while benefiting from a leafy and safe neighbourhood. Kompleks Polri (Police living quarters) is right next door and the small streets all around are lined with trees and very suitable for a morning jog.
For places that are further away, taxis are definitely the way to go in Jakarta. The doorman, who can be reached through intercom, can help arrange a cab (preferably Bluebird).
For transportation from the airport we recommend Silverbird. Premium cars, reliable drivers and only about EUR 15. On request we can arrange a private airport pickup.
Other Things to Note
And last but not least, we welcome all our guests with a box of freshly baked cupcakes!
We were in Jakarta for several days and decided to give Ivo's apartment a try. From the very beginning, he was very accommodative.
Due to a slight miscommunication, my family and I arrived slightly late. Ivo and his wife waited patiently for us, as we arrived close to 10pm. (Thank you!) They were kind enough to show us the apartment and even left cupcakes for us! How thoughtful of them.
The apartment was very well kept - clean and very organized. They provided us with towels and basic toiletries. Also, the fridge was filled with drinks for all of us. In terms of space, it was very comfortable for the four of us.
In terms of location, it might be slightly confusing to find but our driver didn't have much trouble as Ivo gave several landmarks. It is very near to Plaza Semanggi.
Also, there is a sundry shop below for you to buy basic necessities. There is a pizza hut in the building, which closes late and also a nasi Padang restaurant, which we visited several times.
Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay at Ivo's apartment and will definitely recommend this place to our friends.
First I was send the route to drive to the house and when I arrived i was met at the door. We did a walk though, It was clean and had more to offer then i ever thought it would. I had a early arrive time and they let me check in way before they had to; it was so nice as i had no sleep in hours, I loved the place and the location; I look forward to my next visit.
Ivo and his wife are great host! They are very kind, friendly, warm and thoughtful host.
Their unit is very clean, cosy, well stocked. There are water server, mini bar, Nespresso machine, drinks in the refrigerator (like Coke, Sprite, Bintang beer!!). The cupcakes they gave us were so delicious!! It's worth to stay there for the cakes! There is high speed wi-fi, we could watch YouTube and download some movies from iTunes. Also, there is a swimming pool and kid's playground, so my son was really happy. We want to live there! :)
Thank you so much. We definitely come back here again!!
This luxurious apartment was exactly what I had been looking for. Indeed, it even exceeded my expectations. I had been in Singapore the week before and was en route to HK, spending a leisurely weekend in Jakarta. While Jakarta isn't on top of many tourist lists it definitely has enough to enjoy a full weekend. Old Batavia, Merdeka Square, state of the art Western style malls, boat rides in the harbor, Asian markets, quite a few interesting museums and certainly some great nightlife spots.
The apartments location is one of its key features. While Jakarta may come across as slightly chaotic even to the most savvy travelers, the neighborhood of Kuningan is a bit of orderly, green, more sophisticated island. It's in the back yard of the Kartika Chandra hotel, but also the Conrad and JW Marriott hotels are just minutes away. Across the street is the very interesting Satria Mandala museum. For a romantic night out combining a New York ambiance, French food, your favorite songs, and Asian expat live, I would recommend Loewy's. It's a small walk from the apartment. And yes I did feel safe in and around the apartment building.
The apartment itself is clean, well equipped and easy to feel at home in. On the first floor of the building there is small supermarket and a breakfast/lunch type restaurant (serving food all day) that gets you going in the morning. What exceeded my expectations was the great swimming pool. After having been out for a long day of sightseeing in a tropical climate, it's a great reward to do some splashing around in the vast pool. The people at the reception are very friendly and helpful.
I'd certainly come again. If only for the yummy cupcakes!
I come regularly to Jakarta for both work and personal purposes and I am always looking for a calm place that can give me a lot of comfort and privacy, as well as conveniently located. It seems like I found my 'home' in Jakarta.
The apartment have everything I need to work effectively and have a good fun in the city. The internet works perfectly, and it is also well equipped to have a drink with your friends. The apartment was very well cleaned when I got in.
It's located close to Semanggi, but you can easily find your way out through small streets when it's traffic jammed.
I will surely be back on my next visit to Jakarta.

Hi, my name is Ivo. My wife and I live in the Netherlands, but travel to Asia regularly for work and pleasure. As much as we love Jakarta, the city is busy and overwhelming, which makes it difficult for travelers to feel at home. After staying in so many different hotels, we decided to get an apartment to achieve that homely feeling close to our business meetings. By renting out our place, we could make more travelers to the Big J happy and relaxed. After meeting so many nice people from all over the world and receiving very good guest reviews, we added some more apartments to our "Cupcake Suites" collection.
