Just back from Jakarta and from Evy`s house. Want to say Evy`s thank you for warm meeting and very interesting time on the island with Billy. Good location of the house, clean and cosy accommodation. Very thank you allowed me smoking my shisha. Next time my Visit Jakarta i will be staying agin there =)
Evy made me feel so welcome - it was like being part of the family with wonderful Indonesian breakfasts and there was always someone available to help me explain where I was going to the taxi driver. The location is very central and in a very vibrant neighbourhood. Google Maps and Streetview will give you a realistic view of the area.
Evy was a wonderful host! Was more than welcoming and made sure that all my needs were taken care of as I transitioned into Jakarta - arranged transportation, helped me set up my cell phone, offered plenty of suggestions about where to go and what to do in the area. Her family, too, is extremely nice and hospitable. Clean rooms, great breakfast, authentic part of town. Definitely recommend her!
This place is a gem! Situated in a local neighborhood is a nice piece of comfort that is also staffed by very hospitable people.
For me the neighborhood couldn't have been any better since it shows a life that is long gone in the west. The community is very tight here and everyone has their doors open, kids run around playing, and smiles are abundant.
Whoever the owner is... he has managed to do a huge favor for the adventure traveler. Come here if you like to see culture and nice people, but also stay in a very clean and comfortable room. Evy and her family are fantastic and full of information.
Evy and Evy's family are warm and helpful. It has been an unforgettably trip in my life. The only thing I feel pity is not much time to stay with Evy because of the work. If I visit Jakarta next time, Evy's house is my first choice.
Evy's guesthouse is located in the heart of Jakarta: it's a world apart from downtown skyscrapers, it's like a village with narrow alleys and traditional homes. You won't find a lot of western people (bule') here but only friendly locals. Evy, her son and her staff are simply amazing. I felt i was visiting some old friends or relatives i haven't seen for a while. They really want to make sure you are having a great time. The room has everything you need: it's clean, with a/c, tv, refrigerator, big closet: bathroom needs some improvement but it was fine for me. Jakarta is not an easy city to live in: huge, a lot of traffic, pollution but If you ever come here, just open your mind and your heart, and you might see the beauty of it.
