On the northwest corner of the most populated island of the world, Java, lies Jakarta, the economic, cultural and political center of Indonesia, a top international tourist destination over the last years. And whilst most of the international hotel chains are present in the city, the growth of tourism created the need for more and of better quality lodgings. In this part of Asia, we have the tradition of homestays, where the owners rent a room or a part of their house to their guests. This is why we did a thorough search and we found and propose to you 10 smart choices for your accommodation. Check out, below, our list of the best homestays in Jakarta, Indonesia.
In the outskirts of the city, this apartment offers you things that are not common among the other lodgings of Jakarta. The private garden and the pool, alongside the gym and the massage service (for only seven dollars per hour), help you relax after your long flight to Indonesia. The owner has also cooperation with a chauffeur for you and is also willing to help you travel by train to the mainland. The building is quiet and offers you the possibility to isolate and relax, or just to be the place for you to regain your strength for the next days of your journey.

Right in the heart of Jakarta and only 100 meters (109 yards) from Jala Jaksa, this group of apartments is a real value for money. The location is great, right next to the action and at the same time, the entrance is on a quiet street, keeping the noise away. Either for a single traveler or for two, the room provides a private entrance and bathroom, Wi-fi and the hosts are super friendly and willing to help with any issue or question.

At the same property as the first homestay option mentioned in our list, this newly renovated apartment comes to complete this relaxing experience. With a queen-size bed and immediate access to the pool, you can really relax, while enjoying all the amenities of the property described earlier. The whole building is squeaky clean and the hosts are easy to find and helpful with whatever you ask. And since there are two great rooms in this property, why not have some friends join you?

The host, Hery, and his family try to give a real home experience to you and they are always there to help. The apartment is clean, spacious and quiet, in a residential area with several options for food around, even a 24-hour McDonalds in walking distance. You need to take into consideration that the bathroom is shared but that it is also part of the experience that this is your home for the time being! You will have full access to the whole house, which includes a fully equipped kitchen and washing machine. But most of all, it will be your interaction with the hosts that will make this experience a really good one!

This little studio is an ideal choice. In a short walking distance from Monas and Gambir station, this one-bedroom offers the proximity needed for a traveler who would search for a real value-for-money option. Most importantly, the room is really clean and also the communication with the hosts is really good. At the end of the day, after a long day and a hot shower, the bed is comfortable and the lack of Wi-Fi helps you relax even more.

Combining indoor and outdoor space and also having almost 300 square feet (27 square meters) on your own, this hidden gem provides a calm and relaxing experience. Away from the noise and the traffic, with enough privacy, breakfast, the pool, and a king-size bed, you can regain your power after the long trip or even a big day of sightseeing. With all the western amenities and at the same time an Asian character in the interior design, this room includes the best of both worlds.

Right at the beginning of the outskirts at the south part of the city, you may find this fully equipped private getaway. The room offers a large bed and a private bathroom but it’s the rest of the building that provides you almost everything. From a fully equipped kitchen, to dining rooms with TV and coffee tables, a very cozy swimming pool and a nice and spacious barbecue area. This is a good option for bigger groups of people that would easily hang around all together around the pool or the garden.
Bonavista Exclusive Rooms Lebak BulusCilandak, Daerah Khusus Ibukota Jakarta, Indonesia
As a part of a large villa complex near the city center, this apartment’s atmosphere is a fusion of Asian elements with Latin American character. The owners have thought of every little detail for your stay, so you don’t need to bother about anything, from your security, the breakfast and the fully equipped kitchen, to your workout at the gym and the pool area. The interaction with the other guests is encouraged, as the complex has many common areas, although you don’t have to worry about your privacy. This is why even locals use it as a short getaway!

Right next to the center of Jakarta, in a more urban area, you can find this really clean and comfortable place, which would suit perfectly a couple. The rooms offer a large bed and a squeaky clean private bathroom. You may also just walk around the area to find several restaurants and cafeterias. This is a good low budget choice for two travelers who would like to spend their day sightseeing the city and returning to a proper and comfortable lodging.
