JAKARTA ACCOMMODATION INFORMATION

For Visitors to Jakarta

There are many guest houses and hotels near the LSI LANGUAGE CENTRE and the LSI SATELLITE CLASSROOMS,

ranging from as little as Rp 85,000 ( 7.70 / USD 8.60) to Rp 4,000,000 ( 257 / USD 286) per night.

 

We want our students to be satisfied with our Indonesian Immersion Program,

and not be dissatisfied with our accommodation recommendations.

 

Therefore, we ask all students to search for and arrange their own accommodation.

PLEASE BE WARNED . . .

Jakarta is an extremely congested city. 

A short taxi commute which would take 15 minutes in another city

can take 2 hours or more in Jakarta during peak weekday hours.

With this in mind . . .

It is absolutely essential that you book your accommodations

within 2 to 4 kilometres of your chosen study location

(the LSI LANGUAGE CENTRE or the LSI SATELLITE CLASSROOMS).

Otherwise, you may find yourself investing 4 to 5 hours per day

 commuting to and from the school.

OUR SUGGESTIONS

1.   SEARCH FOR ACCOMMODATIONS USING BOOKING.COM

BOOKING.COM consistently turns up the best deals.  Further, most accommodations on the site allow you to pay on arrival and do not require a prepayment to secure your reservation.

2.   WHEN SEARCHING :

*   Enter your Destination.

     If you will be studying at the LSI LANGUAGE CENTRE, enter your destination as "Cilandak Jakarta."

     If you will be studying at the LSI SATELLITE CLASSROOMS, enter your destination as "Jalan Palmerah Selatan, Jakarta."

 

*   Set filters based on "Your Budget" and the "Property Type" you desire (hotel, guest house, homestay, etc).

Keep in mind that guest houses and homestays are generally more economical than hotels, and they usually provide a much better opportunity to use and develop your Bahasa Indonesia skills.

3.   ONCE YOU HAVE SELECTED YOUR ACCOMMODATION, INFORM LSI OF YOUR CHOICE.

We will confirm that the location is appropriate.

IF YOU WOULD PREFER TO STUDY AT THE LSI SATELLITE CLASSROOMS

The HOTEL MULIA SENAYAN (one of Jakarta's premier 5-star accommodations) is located just 800 metres away.

For students with the budget for such accommodations, the MULIA is an obvious choice.

WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE LSI LANGUAGE CENTRE

PESONA GUEST HOUSE JAKARTA

Booking.com Rating :  9.7 Exceptional

Approximately Rp 650,000/night 

€ 42 / USD 46 / CAD 62 / SGD 63 / AUD 67

Located just 2 city blocks from the LSI LANGUAGE CENTRE, this exquisite guest house is, without-a-doubt, the most popular choice of LSI Immersion students.  It offers a highly social "homestay" experience . . . while providing a level of quality and service comparable to a  4- or 5-star hotel.

 

Decorated with fine Indonesian and European furnishings, PESONA's amenities include a grand piano and a picturesque swimming pool surrounded by groomed trees and lovely outdoor seating areas.

 

Each of its finely-appointed, air-conditioned guest rooms has a high-quality queen-sized bed with luxurious linens, a desk, a small refrigerator, a safe deposit box, a flat-screen television with international channels, complimentry WiFi access, and a full ensuite bathroom. 

 

Rates include a generous Indonesian or American breakfast, and delicious lunches and dinners are available for an additional charge.

 

It is almost ironic that, in this opulent setting, students find a truly social environment where they can interact as freely and as casually as they would in the humblest of homestays.

 

Pesona is great choice if you want to truly "connect" with a Indonesian family and have the full "immersion experience." Whether you spend your nights in conversation around the pool, or hit the road to enjoy music and drinks with your new-found friends, Pesona will provide you an unparalleled opportunity to "stay in the language" 24/7 and develop your Bahasa Indonesia skills.

Approximately Rp 325,000/night

€ 21 / USD 23 / CAD 31 / SGD 32 / AUD 33

Located 5 blocks from the LSI LANGUAGE CENTRE, Topaz Guest House is rated by Booking.com as the "best value in Jakarta." It is second-most popular choice of LSI Immersion students (after Pesona Guest House), and is the first choice of students on a budget.

 

Topaz is not really a "guest house"; it is essentially a two-level "strip motel." (See Booking.com photos). Situated in a quiet courtyard (hidden from the street by large residences and tall trees), Topaz's guest rooms are lined up in row, overlooking a pool in the centre of the courtyard.  At one end of the pool, there is a common, open-air kitchen where guests prepare their own breakfast (and other meals if they so desire).

 

Each unit is equipped with air conditioning, a desk, a small refrigerator, a flat-screen television with international channels, complimentry WiFi access, and a private bathroom.

 

A favourite of European families and solo travellers, the courtyard layout of Topaz creates an ideally social atmosphere. Guests meet in the morning as they prepare their breakfast in the common open-air kitchen, and mingle around the pool in the late afternoon and evening.

WITHIN 5 TO 10 MINUTES OF THE LSI LANGUAGE CENTRE BY TAXI

IBIS STYLES JAKARTA SIMATUPANG

3-Star Hotel

Approximately Rp 615,000/night 

€ 39 / USD 44 / CAD 58 / SGD 60 /AUD 63

This newly-opened 3-Star Hotel hotel is a 20-minute walk or a 5-minute taxi ride from the LSI LANGUAGE CENTRE.  Offering a small fitness centre, a bar and a restaurant, the ibis Styles is an excellent choice for students desiring the annonymity of a hotel at a reasonable cost.

 

All units are equipped with air conditioning, a desk, a kettle, a flat-screen television with international channels, and a private bathroom.  Room rates include a continental breakfast.

 

A particular appeal of the ibis Styles is that it is situated next door to Cilandak Town Square (CITOS), a highly-popular "restaurant complex" with 60 eating establishments (restaurants, cafés and bars) and a full supermarket.

Note :  The ibis Styles does not have a pool.

HOTEL KRISTAL JAKARTA

Booking.com Rating :  8.1  Very Good

1-, 2- and 3-Bedroom Suites

Approximately Rp 900,000 to Rp 2,000,000/night

(€ 58-128 / USD 64-143 / CAD 85-188 / SGD 88-195 / AUD 92-205)

Just a 10-minute taxi ride from the LSI LANGUAGE CENTRE, the Kristal is the first choice of LSI's "corporate" clients.  It is the only 4-star hotel in close proximity to the school.

 

Whilst not a particularly "opulent" hotel, the Kristal offers all the amenities that come with it's 4-star rating :

*   complimentary private parking onsite;

*   taxi and limousine service;

*   an elegant outdoor pool with loungers and complimentary towel service;

*   a full gym with daily exercise classes and personal trainers;

*   tennis courts;

*   a spa centre and sauna;

*   a hairdresser/beauty centre;

*   restaurants offering western and Asian dishes;                 

*   a bar with billiards and live music nightly;

*   a business centre and meeting facilities; and

*   complimentary WiFi throughout the property.

 

There is a Starbucks and a full supermarket adjacent to the hotel.  And 3 kilometres away, there is a golf course and a world-class shopping mall.  There are also several nearby entertainment venues.

 

The Kristal offers 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom suites, ranging from Rp 900,000 to Rp 2,000,000 per night. Whilst the hotel's rates may be "top-end" for a solo traveller, parties requiring 2 or 3 rooms can often secure a surprisingly-reasonable "per-room" rate by booking a larger suite.

 

All suites are air-conditioned and feature a seating area with a sofa/couch. Each suite is equipped with a desk and telephone, a safe deposit box, a flat-screen television with international channels and complimentary WiFi access.  Some suites have a dining area and kitchenette with a microwave, stove top and kettle.  Each unit comes with a private bathroom and slippers.
