A welcoming tropical house in Central Jakarta
Following the success of "a tropical house in central jakarta" i open the 2nd place which is nearer to the central......... so yes, the same owner
Even parts of it is still under construction, we try our best to provide the best for our international guests, as you may have read, they were all satisfied.
As I notice guests often need this so I provide:
1) Collaborating with a very good driver, a car is available for you! From the airport the cost will be Rp 200.000,- including everything. I recommend this car especially for guests who arrive late after 8 PM.
2) Please let me know if you need train tickets to Bandung or Yogyakarta. I will refer it to a friend of mine. Small additional cost will apply.
3) A massage by a lady is available for only 4 dollar an hour. you need it after a long journey.
A multi channel TV is available in every room.
You can swim in our exotic tropical swimming pool at any time.
My house is located in Percetakan Negara, close to Menteng. It is approximately 5 kms to the following: National Monument, Grand Indonesia, Mall of Indonesia, Kelapa Gading. Arround 7-10 kms JCC, Semanggi and Blok M.
From the airport, easily reached by several DAMRI buses: Rawamangun, stop when the bus exiting the toll road at UNJ bus shelter continued by busway to Dukuh Atas direction (stop at Pasar Genjing shelter) and walk for 5 min to home. Alternatively, bus Gambir station at destination. From here, the easiest way is to take a taxi starting from 20,000. From my house you can go to other parts of Jakarta using taxi, Jakarta buses (transJakarta), train and other means (ojek), and a combination of bus and train.

Room was nice and clean with good shower,bathroom,wifi etc. We were espially pleased with the housekeeper oi,who helped us out with basically everything (cellphone card,travel routes,dangers,food suggestions),even after we left. For us it was perfect for the first night after arrival since also gave us a ride from the airport for small money. Thanks for everything :)
Couldn't have asked for a better introduction to Jakarta and Indonesian hospitality. In spite of a mix up at the airport (which was quickly resolved) we were well taken care of. Herman and Oi both had great tips on how to spend our first days in Jakarta. Big clean air conditioned room, breakfast, and nothing beats a dip in the pool after a hot Jakarta day. Herman went above to help give us directions and we would have struggled to set up an Indonesian sim card without Oi's help. Very cute dogs too. Highly recommended.
Al final no pude alojarme en el alojamiento de Herman Kosasih por problemas de fechas. Una lástima, porque Oi, el encargado, había sido muy amable con nosotros todo el tiempo previo a nuestra llegada e incluso cuando confirmamos la cancelación. ¡Esperamos poder ir pronto a Jakarta!
It was our first time in Jakarta and we are very lucky to have selected such wonderful hosts. Transaction was seamless and we were picked up at the airport by Oi. He provides us everything that we needed. The place was worth the price. Very clean and comfortable. It was very nice. Though there was a construction going on, it didn't disturb us in any way. Wifi signal was good and the place was very homie. Would definitely book this place again when we go back to jakarta.
My girlfiend and I stayed for two nights at Oasis. We were picked up at the airport by the very very friendly and helpful Oi, who helped us to get around the next two days. He fixed a sim card for us, gave us great tips for good streetfood and took us to the trainstation when we left, all these things would have been a lot harder without Oi's help :)
The place itself is very nice, clean and comfortable. The location is at a quiet area but it is easy to get to the busier areas with the train or taxi. Also it's pretty nice to come home to a relaxed place after visiting the hectic and busy city centre(s), and dip in the pool for a bit..
We shortly met Herman and he was also very helpful and kind! And he has the cutest dogs which made it hard to leave the place..
This is my 2nd times stay at this Villa.Everything perfect. House owner , Herman easy to communicate and u can ask anything from him and he'll help you . Ooi (the pick up) friendly and on time.He fetch and send us to airport safely . Ibu' (house helper) always there if u need anything . Will come to this place again again.Oh, the location very stratergic and easy to get taxi . I prefer this place coz more privacy and there is private pool.heheh
Even tough it was a little inconvenient to find the exact location due to the renovations, our short stay proved to be clean, comfortable and enjoyable. The host was more than willing to arrange transportation before we touched down at the airport. He made sure to provide a map and was even willing to drive us around (to get that particular brand of brownie we wanted to buy). The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, ever willing to provide assistance. It was easy to enjoy the local food around the area and public transportation was accessible the minute you walk out the gate. Everything we read on the description of the Oasis was fulfilled. A definite recommend!
