16 Cheap Girl-Friendly Hotels in Jakarta Under 40$/Night

By Tibs →
Girl-friendly hotels in Jakarta are not difficult to find. As I mentioned in my guides Choosing Your Hotel in Jakarta and Hotels With Massage Parlours in Jakarta , most of them will not bother you if you decide to bring a girl back to your room. However, it can be a bit more tricky in the budget hotel segment. Some of them are indeed family-run or they can be "syariah" hotels, meaning they do not accept couples without a marriage certificate. I thought that to avoid you any bad surprises, I could make this list of cheap hotels under 40$ a night where you can be sure to be able to welcome a last-minute guest. I selected hotels that are located near nightlife areas too, preferably walking distance or just a few minutes away from famous bars and nightclubs.

Hotel Mercure Simatupang (Jakarta) - Hotel Review

By Tibs →
In March 2017, I stayed for a long weekend in Mercure Simatupang in Cilandak (South Jakarta). The hotel is part of the Mercure brand, an international collection of midscale properties managed by the French group Accor. TB Simatupang Road is considered the second business district in Jakarta after the Golden triangle (Sudirman - Gatot Subroto - Rasuna Said). It is growing fast, attracting large corporations from the Oil & Gas sector in particular. At the moment there are about 10 skyscrapers and probably just as many being constructed. It is not surprising that the largest station of the upcoming MRT project will be located in Lebak Bulus, just 500 meters from Mercure Simatupang. Works are still in progress and they can cause some traffic jams. Naturally, the hotel caters mostly to a business crowd, including some long staying guests. It is conveniently located right on TB Simatupang Road, and also right on the Jakarta Outer Ring Road which connects the airport to Bekasi t

If you come to Jakarta for partying as a group of friends, for instance for a bachelor party , it is a good idea to book an entire apartment instead of a normal hotel. First, you can make great savings by splitting the cost of your stay among a few friends. Second, staying in an apartments make it easier to organize a party at home before heading out. This can save you more money especially if you buy a few bottles of spirits at the airport before flying to Jakarta (1 bottle per person allowed). Even if you don't know anybody in the city yet, spend an hour on Tinder or any other popular dating sites  as soon as your plane lands. I guarantee that if you are friendly and not creepy, you can easily get a girl and her friends to join your party. The key word here is " not creepy ": Just be cool, don't expect anything else than a fun evening.

Sana Sini (Pullman Hotel Jakarta)

By Nyoman →
Sana Sini (Here and There in Indonesian) is the new Restaurant of the Pullman Jakarta Indonesia. This Hotel, strategically located on Jl Thamrin near Bunderan HI and Plaza Indonesia has been under huge renovation in order to compete with the new 4-star and 5-star Hotels in the City (like The Hermitage or Double Tree Hilton to name a few). The Sana Sini is the main Restaurant of the Hotel and it is located on the first floor close to the reception and the Makaron Bakery. The first impression is that the place is very wide: You have the impression of being in a fancy department store ! You can walk through the different corners, each of them representing a different type of cuisine. You have Indonesian food at the back, a Chinese corner, a Japanese corner and Western food. You also have a very good selection of breads and cheeses. It is headed by a French Chef.
