Where to stay in Jakarta

Keep in mind that Jakarta is the most expensive Indonesian city. Top-end hotels advertise at around $100, but there may be special packages and discounts. Even if prices are fixed, top- end and mid range hotels may offer 10% to 50% discounts in quiet periods. In terms of quality service, top-end hotels usually offer refurbished rooms, satellite TV, and recreational facilities.

At midrange hotels, you can expect fairly comfortable bed, modest furniture, Indonesian bath (mandi) or Western bathroom, and a TV set. Backpackers` loshens or guest houses will offer you a bed in a fan-cooled room and a shared bath. Wisma are basic family hotels of slightly higher quality.

It is best to avoid areas of unhealthy reputation. Glodok and Kota tend to be unsafe in the early morning hours and at night.
