If you come to Jakarta and you enjoy party, it is a good idea to choose a hotel located walking distance from a nightclub, a bar or a popular hangout spot.

If you don't know the city very well, you will avoid having to deal with traffic and taxis, and you won't lose any time going from one place to another.

Also, it makes things much easier with girls that you could meet inside the clubs and its a big plus to score with girls that you meet online. Just offer them to grab a drink in the bar next to the hotel, and half of the work is done.

The following list contains my recommended nightlife hotels in Jakarta: Those are located in the same building as some of the city's best nightclubs and bars. I started with the 5-stars and luxury hotels, and ended with the more affordable ones.

Grand Hyatt and Keraton at The Plaza
Grand Hyatt (front) and Keraton (back)
Hyatt Hotel is a great place to stay in Jakarta. Though the hotel is a little old, it is perfectly located just above the mall Plaza Indonesia.

Keraton at the Plaza is also located in Plaza Indonesia and it is more luxurious than Hyatt. It is actually where the owners of the mall are living.

This means you have direct access to popular bars like Cloud, Cork&Screw and Burgundy and to the nightclub Immigrant.

Kempinski is one the best and most expensive hotels in Jakarta. It is located just opposite Plaza Indonesia and it is connected to Grand Indonesia.

Grand Indonesia has dozens of great cafés and bars, including Paulaner, Social House and Common People.

Ritz Carlton Pacific Place is the most prestigious hotel in Jakarta. It is both a hotel and a luxury residence for some of Jakarta's richest people. Located inside the mall Pacific Place, it is full of bars such as Potato Head, Cork & Screw or Hard Rock Café. It is also a short taxi ride from all the hip venues of SCBD like Empirica, Lucy in the Sky or Fable.

The Shangri La hotel is one of the best 5-stars hotels in Jakarta. It is not connected to any malls but it has several high-end restaurants and bars.

In particular, it is home to BATS, a live music bar popular every single day of the week. Most clients are either businessmen and expats above 40 looking for prostitutes.

Hotel Mulia, also in Senayan, is the largest hotel in Jakarta with around a thousand rooms. It has a bar called CJs which is similar to BATS: They have live music every day and a lot of prostitutes.

Raffles is part of the Ciputra World 1 complex which includes Lotte Avenue Mall. As such, it is close from several bars like Bacco and Revolution.

The new Fairmont Hotel is next to Plaza Senayan and walking distance from the nightclub X2/Equinox and the bars Prohibition and Union.

Le Meridien has a live music bar called 30 (Tiga Puluh) that used to be happening. It is rather quiet nowadays though.

Oakwood Premier Cozmo is more of a residence for expats, but you can also book affordable luxury rooms. 

It is just upstairs from Loewy, a restaurant and bar crowded almost every night with expats and Indonesian girls. It is a great place to set up a romantic date.

This new hotel is inside the Central Park Mall, the best one in West Jakarta. A favorite with younger Indonesians in their 20s, it has a nightclub called Nebula. 

Central Park has also several cafés and bars in the Ground Floor area.

Artotel Jakarta
This trendy 4-star hotel has a nice bar on its rooftop called BART. Expect a trendy, hipster crowd on weekends especially.

Kosenda Hotel
This hotel is similar to Artotel. It also has a rooftop lounge called Awan Lounge which is a bit more laidback and less crowded. It's a nice spot for a date.

Whiz Prime is a budget hotel located in Kelapa Gading, in North Jakarta. If you enjoy karaoke, you will find the infamous Level V or Level 5, a hidden bordello with young and pretty lady companions.

They also have a rooftop bar called Nuage.

Grand Paragon Hotel
Grand Paragon is a 3-star hotel which is mostly famous for its luxury karaoke, one of the best in Jakarta. The hotel is on Jalan Gajah Mada, about 15 minutes away from the city center.

The Jayakarta
Next to the Jayakarta Hotel is Club 36, a sort of coyote bar with naked dancers. The atmosphere is lively almost every day of the week. Their karaoke is popular as well.

This hotel is in the same building as the nightclub Golden Crown, one of the craziest venues in North Jakarta. Expect almost non-stop party with drugs and prostitutes.

This sex hotel has a massage parlour and a small club, Oppai. You will find naked dancers and prostitutes every day.

This hotel is quite unique. It is located on last floors of a tools and equipment mall, next to a parking area. In spite of that, it offers great rooms for a very affordable price. It is also just a few floors above Sun City nightclub.

The two best value hotels near Jakarta Intl Expo are Grand Mercure Kemayoran and Holiday Inn Kemayoran.
