“All round great hotel!”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

This hotel is everything you want from a central midrange place to stay- its clean, has friendly and helpful staff, spacious and comfortable rooms, easy check in and out, central location. It is in the doorstep of Jakarta's famous antiques market, and within walking distance of loads of food and drink outlets, and 5 mins walk to a train station (actually quicker than crawling along in taxis).
I would definitely recommend this place for a good value and easy weekend stay.

Beautiful place that you don't even notice you're in the heart of boisterous Jakarta. I was here with my mom, sis and husband, and we all loved the place. We even had birds chirping as we had our breakfast by the pool.

Easy to get a cab as well as the antique market was just right across the road.

Breakfast (though small in size) was also delightful for the start of our day. Will definitely will be back again when in the city.

That is a great hotel, which located in colorful area in Jakarta. I defenetly do not like this city, but hotel was great. Clean rooms, friendly personal, wi-fi in rooms, good swimming pool! They offer you drink for free for all day long. It's easy to communicate, they have an english speaker hostess. Also it's an antiques market next to the hotel! Ypu can buy some interesting stuff!

My wife and I stayed at the Shraya residence in late October for two nights. The staff were helpful and friendly although their ability to communicate in English was limited. The room was clean, well appointed, and comfortable. All rooms face onto an interior courtyard. The pool proved to be a wonderful escape from the mid-day Jakarta heat. Breakfast was a very delicious plate of nasi goreng and coffee. We paid 350,000 Rp for our room on the second floor.

As others have noted, the hotel can be difficult to find (the first time) and there is no sign out front. Despite my lack of familiarity with the city, I somehow managed to guide the driver to the address. He was confused due to the lack of any signage, but the gates quickly opened and staff were very quick to welcome us to the residence.

All in all, a lovely place and a nice retreat in an otherwise dreary urban landscape.

I was very anxious booking a home stay in Jakarta. But seeing the reviews and prompt response of sasha,decided to stay here..
Location: posh central location in the city may be 5 minutes to all major places in the city.
Ambience: the place has a nice lobby with wifi..A well maintained swimming pool with tasteful interior decor.
Rooms:nothing luxury but all amenities like AF,hot shower, clean linens, fresh towels, fridge.. Good housekeeping..
Food: breakfast is basic but served with a smile.. Added incentive is water n coffee is on the house, anytime..
The owner of the place is great help too..
They have massages and foot reflexology.. Must try...
All in all a great place..

This is a first class home away from home. The situation is very central although Jakarta's traffic can be a problem at certain times of day, this location is very ideal. Many taxis passing outside are convenient.
Jalan Surabaya has many interesting antique shops along the other side of the street. A short walk can take you to quite a few restaurants, and a train station.

The rooms are very comfortable, well equipped and cleaned and serviced each day. The swimming pool is great. The staff are helpful and friendly, and management is fantastic. I stayed three weeks, and still didn't want to leave, but my schedule demanded it. Thankyou Sasha and Tirta. I'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: They're all good.Just a choice between upstairs or downstairs.
