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.

I never met Herman and before booking he warned me that the room is booked but I can stay at another house in Jakarta. The house, staff and other guests at this other place were nice, everything was tidy and I am totally happy with what I got!
Very nice place. Homely feel and very refreshing with a swimming pool in a busy city of Jakarta! Helpful and friendly staff, really felt like home there.
Super accueil de la part d'Herman ! Nous avons eu du mal à trouver le lieu car nous n'avions pas eu son mail nous donnant les indications sauf de wifi ! Mais grâce au numéro de téléphone d'Herman notre taxi a pu avoir les indications ! La chambre et l environnement sont très appréciable : piscine, clim et en retrait des rues assez bruyantes ! Il y a plein de petits warung au alentours ou on peut manger pour deux fois rien. Herman nous donner des indications sur les transports à emprunter pour visiter la ville et pour nous rendre à la gare! Il nous a même laisser les infos sur papier à la porte de notre chambre pour pallier à notre faible niveau d anglais ! Vraiment une très bonne adresse nous regrettons d être resté qu une nuit et de pas avoir visité Jakarta (nous souhaitions mais les nombreuses heures de vol et le décalage horaire nous a vraiment fatiguer !). Même si Herman travaille et donc nous l'avons pas vu beaucoup il y a toujours quelqu'un à qui s adresser ! Merci encore Herman et à toute ton équipe
We had a great time at Herman's oasis in Jakarta! Everything was wonderfull! Our three years old daughter still talks about Herman and Ayu and was also very excited by the property.
The room was exceptionally clean, had a great modern bathroom and a private terrace to the pool in the garden.
Hermann helps where he can. Whether it is with the booking of train tickets or arrange for our little girl coconuts.
Herman's employee Oi picked us up from the airport and drove a great detour off the main streets to already show us first impressions of Jakarta.
Dear Herman, dear Ayu, dear Oi - thank you for allowing us to be with you. We enjoyed our time there very much! See you next time.
Oi was really kind and even waited at the airport for us til late in the night. The room was really big and the surrounding (especially the garden with the pool) very nice. Also could we ask Oi for everything we needed. We were perfectly satisfied for the short stay of two nights.
The house was clean and the facilities were like promised. We had two good nights and got a nice chat with Jeff, who gave us some tips where to go. For the places we wanted to go it wasn't the best location but with a little walk you could reach the busway which takes you everywhere in the city.
