“Value for money”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Wow! Hotel is a value for money hotel because they provide a very cheap room, clean, staff friendly, a good wifi connection, near to Lokasari Square, and easy to find foods.
It is 30min drive from Soekarno-Hatta International airport.
But, the hotel is next to a night club. You can hear the loud sound from the club. Unless, if you stay at level 3 and there is no window in your room, you will be ok.

This hotel is practically one 4 storey small building or Ruko as Indonesian call it.
It is located in a small busy road (at night) at Mangga Besar area and could only fit one car in front. From Jalan Mangga besar raya, enter the small road that have signage Olimpic Hotel , Wow hotel is on the left side.
It is the cheapest "modern and new" hotel we could find on web ($23), and so we thought, let's give it a try.
We got the room on 4th room, no lift , no windows, TV signal was bad, free wifi. Small room as expected, clean but minimal amenities. No dining area or gym, rooms only. No telephone in the room, if you want to ask room service, you have to use your own handphone or walk downstairs.
If you are planning to just use the room for sleep only and explore the night life in the old city area, then this is not a bad option.
For those who will bring a car, you can park in Lokasari plaza,enter from their side entrance.

Jakarta is not cheap, for a double on 20 euro this is a good buy. Ofcourse, everywhere else on Java the prices are much cheaper, but not in Jakarta. For the price you get airco, good English and friendly staff. Breakfast is no biggy. Most rooms don't have windows.
The hotel is located between the touristic areas but you still need a small transport to get there fast.

We are staying at the wow hotel since last night.the room is very clean and is big enough to stay in a couple of nights. The shower is right next to the toilet with no separation but the water doesnt reach the bedroom or anything so I don't see the problem. The hotel is nearby the old town but far from other attractions.if you come from the airport then ask the driver to bring you to olympia hotel because otherwise they'll have a hard time finding this hotel!

The hotel itself is good and good value, is new, clean...But is right next to a discoteque, so for light sleepers is terrible. We were in a room with no window, but I could still hear the loud music until 3AM (on a sunday), there were people walking and slamming doors on the hall until very late at night... The area is quite dodgy as well, a lot of "spas" this I didn't like, and I felt insecure at night.

This budget hotel provides enough room for sleep, it is okay for your money but not recommended for family since it is located in the red light district area and if you are taking your car or drive by yourself certainly the parking is a nightmare. But if you are a single traveler riding a taxi or public transport then it would be okay. The room without window, and not really big biut considering the price is cheap only around USD 28 per nite and its a clean and brand new room, then its worth the money. It is suitable for budget traveler who is looking for entertainment in Jakarta. It is convenience as there are lots of foods and entertainment spots in the surrounding area

The hotel is very basic, new and clean with free strong wifi and flat TV. It’s a pity they do not have a map of Jakarta at the reception.
There rooms are small, with and without windows. We stayed in the room without window and we did not regret because this hotel is situated in a noisy area, near to a bar. Not recommended for family with small children.
The bed was comfortable with a good mattress. However the bathroom has a strange smell. Next door there's a Chinese restaurant and there many more nearby.
It is about 5 minutes’ walk away is a small mall, and less than 10 minutes’ walk to Mangga Besar commuter station and Olimo Transjakarta bus shelter.
The hotel is quite difficult to find as it is located in an alley beside the Pizza Hut.
Overall a very good value hotel for a night or two.

Room Tip: Rooms without windows are recommended as hotel is situated in a noisy area.
