Four Star Jakarta hotels

Most popular areas in Jakarta for 4-star hotels

Few cities in the world can compete with Jakarta's electric, immersive character, not to mention the sheer variety of top-class 4-star hotels hidden between the sprawling neighborhoods and skyscraper-topped downtown districts of the mighty megacity. Why not start in the north, around the rides and attractions of the Ancol Bayfront City – hotels with tropical gardens and big pools await there. Back in the heart of the action, and the area of Marunda boasts huge block hotels with several wings, while the parks of Gelora host their own residences with pools and sun-splashed grounds.

Top 4-star hotels in Jakarta

The acclaimed Grand Mercure Harmoni, which makes its home between the buzzing streets of Central Jakarta, boasts vibrant suites of bold colors and huge bathrooms, not to mention glistening pools shrouded by the skyscrapers all around. Next up is the Holiday Inn Kemayoran. One of the top choices in North Jakarta, this hotel has fitness centers and playgrounds, free WiFi, and walled-in swimming pools. Then there’s the apartments of the Aston at Kuningan Suites, which offer an enclave of calm in the throbbing metropolis, and boast kitchenettes and lounges in many rooms.

Where to find the best restaurants in Jakarta

Head for the long strand of Jalan Gunung Sahari Raya, which chops through the heart of North Jakarta in a medley of international chain eateries and acclaimed seafood joints serving some fine curries and fusion sushi with cuts straight from the Java Sea. Or, go south, to Kuningan, where the streets host Italian trattorias and haute French bistros – something for those romantic evenings in Indonesia's capital. And then there are the earthy kitchens of Marundi, which churn out platters of gado gado, mouthwatering peanut sate, and steaming Javanese coffees from morning until night.

The most popular things to do in Jakarta

Culture vultures hitting this endless megalopolis should be sure to kick off their travels in the city with an odyssey through the acclaimed museums. These begin with the great National Museum of Indonesia, where the collections chronicle everything from Chinese Ming ceramics to ancient Hindu and Buddhist artifacts from the days of old Java. For something a little more alive, South Jakarta hosts the Ragunan Zoo. The 2nd-largest on the planet, it's got the likes of formidable Komodo dragons, African hippos, gibbons, and rare leopards – a great day out for the whole family. And if you're tiring of the hubbub of the town, then why not make a beeline for the Java Sea? Here, the so-called Thousand Islands – there are actually just over 100 – beckon, with shimmering white sands on Ayer Island and glowing coral reefs around Kulkul Kotok.

Best ways to get around Jakarta

Jakarta has a huge network of buses and light rail connections, with lines crisscrossing the whole city, from north to south, east to west. Use the new smart card system to ride the trains, and opt for daily passes for lower rates. Alternatively, there's a good busway system that can be used in conjunction with smartphone payment systems. Private taxis and auto rickshaws are the other popular choice, but be sure to agree on a price before engaging a driver, or insist on having the meter running.
