best midway location between airport and gambir station?

I am now finalizing our travel plans and would appreciate suggestions as to what is the best central location to stay between the airport and Gambir station (for our trip to Yogya) that is within a shopping area and near tourist attractions? This will be our first trip to Jakarta. Thanks much!

cebuana51347, hello

1/ The best tourist recommended location is near Welcome Monument. Whats your budget/ room/ night???

2/ If you travel to YOG - the best connection is not train, but flight. This way you can actually SAVE on accommodation in JKT and save time. Flight to YOG is only 40 min, but train ride is about 5-7 hours, always late, never on time. Scenery behind the train window will be local slams.

Thanks for your reply Schonefeld! Budget is around $40-50/night.. preference is, as stated, mid-way between the airport and Gambir station but of prime importance too is accessibility to shopping, tourist attractions, etc. In short, we want to be where the action is! :) And, yes, my husband prefers to take the train ride to Yogya. After 3 days there, we will take a plane to Bali. Thanks in advance!

You should check our Ibis Arcadia at Jln Wahid Hasyim.. there are 2 Ibis hotels in that area fyi.. Furthermore, you can also check out the MaxOne hotel at Jln Sabang.. Anyway, have a look at the hotels around these area and its also very close to the welcome monument..

Cheers
