They were very kind and nice. The place was good, but taxi driver can't find the location easily. Water didn't work well compered with it in Japan. Anyway I had good time in staying at there.
We have stayed one night as a layover for the further trip to Yogyakarta. As per description- it was a unit in this same building as Best Western Hotel located in a shopping area in Jakarta- not far from the airport (it took us 25 minutes to get there from the airport ~2am and 1h20minutes ~3pm during the weekend to the airport due to heavy traffic). The host was very quick with responding queries in fluent english giving the directions to the hotel etc. The owners family member was kind enough to wait for us in the middle of the night in the lobby to handover the keys. Unfortunately the place was filthy- starting from the bathroom which is smelly, a shower where you rather wear flipflops than barefoot up to the stained and literally filthy window curtains which have seen white years ago. Bed sheets didn't smell fresh either. The furniture is exactly as per picture shown in the ad, however- as explained before- the place has not seen a proper cleaning since a while . We were also hoping to relax on the pool which picture is used on the background of this ad, however it has never been shown or explained to us where it is. As mentioned earlier we have arrived in the middle of the night so too late to adress any queries or look for a substitute accommodation. On a good note- the wifi was fast, the lobby of the hotel accommodates a great restaurant with a vast choice of dishes in a reasonable price level.
Hi Semih, I am so sorry about the condition of the unit. Upon checking with the cleaning lady, I found out there is misunderstanding that she thought you would come at 2pm instead of 2am. So the bathroom is not properly cleaned before your arrival. It is my fault not stating clearly to her about your 2 am arrival. The swimming pool is located in the F1 floor. It should be clearly stated in the elevator the location of the swimming pool. Sorry again for the inconvenience.
A nicely furnished apartment in a hotel building will make the stay very convenient in this place. Ideal for singles or couple. Although the location is not in the city centre, it is not very difficult to reach the centre using taxis and there are many supermarkets and convenient stores nearby. Indra , the host and Lully , his cousin are wonderful people for their communication and assistance during the stay.
All went fine. Indra answers very fast and accurate-relevant info. Location is good to taxi to center. Jakarta is not a pedestrian city. Great Chinese restaurants 5 mins by taxi and fruit market accessible day time walking south of hotel in parallel street.
A comfortable place to stay, but the neighborhood is terrible. Using a taxi right from the hotel doors is highly recommended. The flat lacks such things as electric cattle and hair dryer. No chances to hide from the air conditioner flow when in bed. Long waiting for elevator. The good thing is the location - building can be reached from airport by toll road without stucking in jams, city center is 15 minutes away by the taxi, Ancol park is also close.
The host was responsive and helpful, the key handover was easy.
This accommodation is recommended for short stays for couples without children or for single travelers.
Hello Alexander, the Mangga Dua neighborhood is a shopping center area which is very busy during the day. The neighborhood is fairly common as any other places in Jakarta residential area. Eventhough it has many alley in the neighborhood, walking in the major street in front of the Best Western hotel to Mangga Dua mall, Mangga Dua square, and ITC Mangga Dua is safe even during the night. Electric cattle is available on the upper cabinet next to the tv. About the ac, we do have an ac deflector that can be used upon request.
Great location if wanting to be near the airport and Mangga Dua shopping. The host is very accommodating.
Although host Indra was not there in person, he made sure everything was taken care of. He replied fast when i had questions. The apartment is just like the pictures, comfortable enough. The neighbourhood i didn't really enjoy especially during the night can feel unsafe. Though i do recommend because of the extra services that come with the hotel.

About the Host, Indra
Hello, my name is Indra. I do have several studio units in Best Western Mangga Dua Hotel and Residence in Mangga Dua Jakarta, Indonesia. The unit is fully furnished and has all the 4 stars amenities since it is in the same building with the Best Western Hotel. The only different between the hotel and my unit is the floor location. You can use all the hotel amenities while you stay in the unit,. It is located within walking distance from one of the biggest shopping area in southeast asia. If you are a bargain hunters, you will like staying in the area since you can walk to the Mangga Dua shopping center. It is also located less than 2km from the Ancol beach. Ancol is the biggest beach recreational facility in Jakarta. I also have another studio unit in Thamrin City complex. If you like staying close to the city center, you may want to consider this unit. Looking forward to see you in Jakarta.
