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.

Staying at Herman's place was very nice. For the moment there are some constructions going on at his place but it's still a nice place to relax at while being in busy Jakarta. The room is super spacious and clean, the bed is comfortable and you even have a tv in case you just want to relax!
Very clean, close to a train station, quiet part of the city, with excellent facilities, the shower is great! Good wifi, the pool is lovely, and Herman's staff are really helpful. A great little find, and Herman had a few little tips of excellent places to visit.
L'endroit est vraiment super , c'est vraiment un oasis au cœur de la ville mouvementée ! Parfait pour se reposer après une longue journée de marche ! Les hôtes sont trés accueillant , avec petit déjeuner le matin !!! :) Je recommande fortement, de plus le quartier est idéal ! Et merci à Oi pour nous avoir conduit de l'aéroport jusqu'à la chambre d'hôte !!!
Oi was very nice. He was in charge of pick up and drop us from and at the Airport. Well organized and punctual.
The room was great! clean and new with modern decoration.
Difficult to accede to the residence because of the building material in construction. That will be nice to put an door more easy to manipulate.
We stayed for two nights at herman's place and it was great! Oi picked us up at the airport and showed us a place for eating good street food. He gave us good advices and was very helpful. Also herman gave us good advices for our journey. So it was a perfect start for our trip through indonesia. The room is comfortable and clean and herman's dogs are really sweet.
We had a great time in Jakarta and really enjoyed our stay. We didn't really meet Herman but Oi, his employee, picked us up from the airport, drove us to the station (for a fair price) and helped us with all our questions! Room was clean and very spacious...the only thing we missed was a mosquito net (which we also forgot to bring along). All in all, definitely recommendable!
Herman's place is fantastic!!! I had an amazing stay. Everyone around the house was super friendly and helpful. The room was very space and clean. It got everything you need. Herman even prepared brand new soap and shampoo for us. I would definitely recommend staying at herman's place in Jakarta!
