Bed and breakfast & apartments in Jakarta
Are you planning a holiday to Jakarta? Do you need a place to stay? A tourist heading to
this Indonesian gem should be prepared to do some research. Jakarta is actually a province
comprising five separate cities, two of which contain most of the tourist attractions. When
looking for a hotel, bed and breakfast, or private apartment in Jakarta, you might want to begin
with a search in Jakarta Old Town and Central Jakarta. Jakarta Old Town is where many of the
Old Dutch East Indies buildings are, and Central Jakarta is where you will find the National
Monument, the Istiqlal Mosque and the Jakarta Cathedral.
Finding an inn or bed and breakfast in Jakarta
As you can imagine, travel expenses in the city are something to keep in mind. If you are
looking to move away from larger hotels, try to map out exactly where the inn or bed and
breakfast you are considering is so that you can at least position yourself nearby the most
important sites. Another option for those who want to be in the middle of all the excitement
is to look into private apartments that are rented out to travellers for short stays. Unlike a bed
and breakfast these apartments may be located anywhere in the city, and you will have more
independence this way too.
