“Clean room with Ancol & Mangga Dua Malls nearby”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

I love this hotel.Not just because of its great location near to these 3 malls:ITC Mangga Dua,WTC Mangga Dua& Mangga Dua Square,but the staff is very helpful and the hotel is clean. The breakfast was nice and delicious with beautiful dining room and wifi is great. Food and transportation is also easily accessible with hawkers nearby and frequent busway,bajaj(tricycle),taxi etc.Comes with elevator, I think the price is reasonable with its small room. However surprisingly, we need to pay deposit and luckily they accepted credit card & returned the deposit in cash. We spent first day shopping in Tanah Abang.The shopping experience is fantastic due to its cheap price and wide variety of design.But careful, you might get lost there. On second day,we went to Ancol Theme Park which is 10 minutes from the hotel and enjoyed our moment in Atlantis Water Adventure,Sea World,Ocean Dream Samudera & Cable Car but were afraid to go to Dufan seeing its roller coaster and free-fall ride . We also spent the night in ITC Mangga Dua but lots of shops already closed. There is souvenir area near to the hotel which we were unable to go due to limited time. Overall, it is really satisfying to be there

From here you can walk to the old city. Also easy to get the train (kota) and take the bus (almost in front of the door. The bus works like metro in Paris. Ask the map!!!
Rooms can be very small, but all you need is there!
Good breakfast, friendly people. Inside is better then outside....
There is an elevator, so even the higher floors are ok and easy to get there.

Rumah Shinta is one of the most affordable hostels in Jakarta yet quality is not sacrificed. I got a single room which, although really small, had all the basic stuff that i needed. Breakfast and the dining area were fantastic! Staff were really helpful and approachable. They helped me especially with directions. Location was good. It's a short walk to the nearest bus shelter and since it is located along the highway, getting a taxi or a tuktuk was not a problem. I wish wifi reached the rooms though so that I didn't have to go near the dining area to browse the net. Also, I wish there were other English channels on the cable tv.Single room amenities: A/C, cable tv, H/C shower and bidet, towel, toiletries, breakfast, unlimited mineral water, safety deposit box, foldable desk

Nice hotel. My friend and I had stayed in this hotel for only one night yet it was a memorable time for us. We had a late checked in around 9pm. The room is small but it was very comfortable for us. The staff were very helpful and very friendly as well.

Stayed for 3 nights in a single room - room was small with attached bathroom but it was sufficient for me. Breakfast provided and wifi was available although it was not working for few hours or else inconsistent signal.

The hotel is near to the shopping places in Mangga Dua - approximately 5-10mins walk to Pasar Pagi Mangga Dua, ITC Mangga Dua, Mangga Dua Mall.

Staff were friendly and very helpful. Will come to stay again if my travel brings me to Jakarta.

I had booked online and I first got disapointed to see that the prices they charge on booking websites and directly with them are different ! I ended paying more , it was the first time ever I saw that. I always book online because it is normally cheaper . Then , I got taken to my room ...or should I say closet ! if you have claustrophobia, don't not stay there . It's litterally a bed , enough space to stand next to it and a TV on the wall (only 2 english spealing chanels). The ensuite bathroom is also small but clean . you can tell the furniture is new though. the hotel in general was clean and the staff always greeted me and tried to help (their english is alright, but don't expect long conversation).

the location isn't too bad . It's on a massive road with no pavment, so a bit dangerous . but it's only 15 min walk from Fatahillah square where you have a train and bus station (if you don't get run over..) . there are a couple of museum in this square too to go and visit. Overwise, if you don't want to use the public transport (I found it confusing), the staff of the hotel got me taxis very easily .

there is free WiFi which always worked fine for me . Free breakfast : toasts with butter and jam ,tea or coffee, and hot dishes (I didn't try, I'm too used to continental breakfast).

to sum up : clean place with staff willing to help and very polite. But the room was very small, and they charge more if you pre book online .

the rooms and bathrooms are clean. but for a single room is too small. and locations are in areas prone to flooding.
but for those of you who like shopping this is the perfect location. close to shopping, mangga dua. and close to the old city center and the city station.
