Jakarta Hotels and Accommodation
(Jakarta, Java, Indonesia)
Jakarta is an enormous city and enjoys a thriving tourism industry. A huge choice of hotels is therefore available in Jakarta, with accommodation being spread around the archipelago and its many tourist hotspots and resorts.
Most holiday makers arriving in Jakarta choose to look for lodging and accommodation within the central commercial district, which is perhaps better known as the Golden Triangle. Hotels within the Golden Triangle have the advantage of being close to the main shopping centres and museums.
Where to Stay
If you are a backpacker or holidaymaker simply looking for the cheapest accommodation available in central Jakarta, then both the Kebon Sirih Street and also the Jaksa Street are known for their inexpensive hotels and youth hostels. Nearby Jalan Jaksa has also become somewhat of a haven for backpackers.
Lying on the northerly outskirts of the Jakarta Golden Triangle are a number of further hotels, which are often more suitable for business travellers, with the Kristal Hotel being located here and close to a number of prominent government offices.
Presiding over the Sudirman Financial District and near to the city's Stock Exchange, the Crowne Plaza Hotel Jakarta on the Jalan Gatot Subroto Kav suits both business visitors and tourists alike.
Those looking for beachfront accommodation around Jakarta Bay will find a number of outlying options to consider.
The Pondok Putri Duyung Resort Hotel on the Jalan Lodan Timur features individual cottages (pondoks) and a choice of nearby watersports.
