We enjoy helping our guests. We like to learn about their background and motivation to travel in Indonesia.

Other Things to Note

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.
Stayed with Henry for 2 days before heading on a 1 month trip across Indonesia. I had nothing planned for my 1 month trip so Henry was so kind to help me out and gave me some advise on where to go in order to avoid tourists. Henry is the best host you can wish for. During my stay he took me around in the city, showed me local food and introduced to all the great "secret" spots in Jarkarta.
Room was nice with air condition and so was the Indonesian breakfast.
I give my stay at Henry's 5/5 stars.
Staying with Hendry the first night in Indonesia was so great. We arrived late but that was no problem for him. He and his family were so kind and tied to help us with everything! The best part of staying with Hendry was the great breakfast :-) We are enjoying Indonesia very much, especially the friendly, kind and positive people!
Had a pleasant 3 nights here. Hendry is really helpful. Was a lil hungry on the first day and had not yet ventured out yet. Had a home cooked meal prepared by the two friendly domestic helpers Hanna and Rina. The house is also near to the mall which is just a short walk away. Great time. Will recommend to anyone going to the area
