Hendry's home is really a good place to stay in the big city of Jakarta. The neighborgh is quiet and not so far from the airport! The room have is own bathroom and ac. The family is so sweet! First day the help us to go to the center of the city with their car and the second day Hendry help us so much to book a flight! I recommend this address !! If you want to take some rest after your flight, you will be in the right place
Hendry is a really good host. He is very kind, speaks english very well and gave us good advice. When we left he gave us a list from must-see things in java, which was very nice. The house is located in a rich neighbourhood and theres a large mall 5min walk. The house is large and quiet. Good place to start your journey in indonesia.
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.
Hendry is very kind, even bought the train tickets for us. The room is very big. His family get up very early to prepare the breakfast for us , because we have to catch up the train. The address is a little bit hard to find. But the neighborhood is good. Let Hendry tell the taxi driver, he will find it. Thanks a lot!
We had such a fabulous time in Jakarta. Hendry was the perfect host, he even took us his volunteer job teaching underprivileged kids. Room was really confortable, shower was awesome. The location is great, right next to a giant mall selling anything you could need. We stocked up on all the things we needed for our backpacking trip and got a movie and massage in before we went off the grid. Highly recommend this place.
Pour: Grande bâtisse propre et bien équipée, chambre spacieuse avec salle de bain privée et climatisation, quartier tranquille et huppé, excellent petit-déjeuner style indonésien, informations pertinentes, support logistique, accueil chaleureux, prix assez compétitif.
Contre : Bien éloigné du centre, donc cher en taxi pour quoi que ce soit, au moins 100.000 idr jusqu'au Monas, idem pour l'aéroport (il y a des bus, mais c'est toujours très compliqué), peu de restaurants et d'espace vert. Quartier résidentiel sans âme ni charme.
