I would be traveling to Jakarta for a business event for 2 days and I am thinking which hotel is the best in Jakarta for me to book? After that I would like to move to my own travel for few days which I would later scout out nearby areas for cheaper accommodations. Thank you for your suggestions in advance.
In Jakarta, the best way is to choose the nearest location to where you need to go because the traffic is really bad here. Other than that tip, some of the best hotels to choose from are:
Hotel Mulia (www.hotelmulia.com/)
– in center of business district and a nice coffee shop to boot. It is located near to Bung Karno Stadium, Forestry Museum and Plaza Senyan.
Hotel Grand Hyatt Jakarta (www.jakarta.grand.hyatt.com/)
– next to Plaza Indonesia and Grand Indonesia shopping malls for those who wants to shop and have more choices. It is also close to National Museum.
Hotel Shangri-La Jakarta (www.shangri-la.com/jakarta/)
– good location but the access to it can be challenging due to traffic. It is close to General Soedirman, National Monument and Bung Karno Stadium.
