Where to stay in Jakarta

Exploring Jakarta

Jakarta is Indonesia's capital and largest city, and it sits in its own little province in the northwest of Java. It has an impressive 2,000-year history and has played host to a number of powerful colonial masters, including the Portuguese, the Dutch and the English.

There are many intriguing districts in Jakarta to duck into, where you can take in the colonial past through ancient buildings and museums, away from the noise and traffic of the most populous city in Indonesia. South Jakarta in particular is lots of fun. There are glitzy air-conditioned malls, swanky eateries, large hotels and some excellent markets there, while West Jakarta is best known for its museums and parks.

There is a range of options for all travelers. The most popular hotel in Jakarta is the New Priok Indah Hotel, which has been booked 5 times from our verified guests. Our guests also highly recommended Collection O 6 Grand Palace Kemayoran in Jakarta as it has been reserved 5 times.

Sightseeing in Jakarta

- Central Jakarta

Jakarta Pusat is where most of the tourist action is, with monuments, skyscrapers, wide boulevards, huge shopping malls and star-rated hotels. It is home to the Presidential Palace and the National Monument, along with the fancy residential shopping and dining area of Mentang.

- Old Jakarta

Old Jakarta is a fairly small part of the city, but is awash with history and culture. It's in fact now a National Heritage site, thanks to the Dutch colonial architecture that still remains in the area. This can be seen most prominently in the majestic bleached walls of the Jakarta History Museum. The sprawling blue waters of Jakarta Bay also provide beautiful sunset views.

Transportation in Jakarta

Jakarta is huge and the need to use public transport is high. There is a new monorail system (Jakarta Monorail) in use to the more colorful and touristy parts of town, as well as a fairly recent bus network. All districts are served by bus with dedicated lines, while minibuses take in localized routes. In addition, trains run to Ancol from downtown Jakarta and motorized rickshaws (bajaj) and metered taxis are also on hand.
