karloon, hi

PLEASE check the maps of JKT city ( google/maps or smth) before booking, Aston marina and Mercure ancol are in completely DIFFERENT part of JKT from JCC. You have to cross the whole city to get there, which is impractical due to the local traffic madness.

hotels that are really CLOSE to JCC:

Mulia Senayan

Sultan

Athlet Century

Harris FX suites

Crowne Plaza

Ritz Carlton Pacific place

Actually you can stay at the Mangga Dua Area since they are the closest to your shopping needs.. Novotel Mangga Dua Square is another good option..

I personally do not like staying in the Ancol area..

Cheers

The Media Hotel & Towers

Best western mangga Dua

Le Grandeur

Novotel Mannga Dua

Schonefeld,

More on burning off some time during the night for sight seeing, drinks and food. Heard that the mangga dua mall shop typical close around 8pm.

Doubt can do any shopping. Stuff in Malaysia and Indonesia should be more or less the same.

Interest food I'm keen on:

Satay

murtabak

and local delicacy

Pasar malam available around there?

karloon, hey

1/ <<Stuff in Malaysia and Indonesia should be more or less the same.>>

Probably, as the lots of Malay are buying in bundles at Tanah Abang to resell at home..LOL

2/ <<Pasar malam available around there?>>

No

3/ << night for sight seeing, drinks and food.>>

No sightseeing at night, sorry. Best JKT clubs/ hang out places are listed here:

NOTE: Stadium is better to be avoided, seedy place.
