    Thanks for the advice. I will stop in this week and see if I can get lucky.

    My hotel stay in Jakarta

    Stayed at two hotels in Jakarta this time around, Novotel Gaja Madah and Holiday Inn Sarinah. The Novotel is still a good hotel not too run down as yet, carpets seem old but the room, facilities are still operational. Only problem and it is existing is the female front desk staff avoid them at all cost unless you are Caucasian, if you are not expect poor service and to be treated as a criminal. The gym is small but has a good range of machines and free weights with cardio machines that still actually work. Worth the stay if you get a members special.

    Holiday Inn Sarinah is brand new so the hotel is clean and comfortable, wide assortment of TV channels, no pool, small (really small) fitness room with cardio machines and no weight machines, some dumbbells (10 kg max) are available. Once again a good choice if you get a special.

    The staff polite and friendly except for one idiot in housekeeping, that refused me extra towels. But at the front desk there are two absolutely beautiful staff working there, I k now Jakarta has a lot of beautiful, sexy women, that's why I go there. But these are the first front desk staff that I have seen (and I have stayed at a lot of hotels) that can take your breath away.

    Redtop Hotel

    So I ended up trying the Redtop Hotel.

    Its big advantage is that it is just a 5 minute walk from Classic. Emporium is directly across the street from Redtop, but I have not actually tried Emporium yet as it seems expensive.

    The wifi in my (Executive) room was excellent. Automatic logon without ID or password, high speed. ISG and some other sites are banned (though not all porn sites), but I could easily access them via free web-based proxy).

    The pool is about 30 meters long and good for doing laps. It is curvy on one long side, but straight on the other and the tiles are at right angles to the sides so it is easy to swim straight.

    When I looked closely (e. G. At dust under the bed), the cleaning in my room was not fantastic, but it didn't bother me. The bathroom needs refurbishing and smells a bit. Which did bother me.

    They seem to have quite a lot of buffet lunches and dinners in the lobby restaurant, which is convenient if you want to eat quickly and choose freely.

    There is some noise from the Mosques, but not too bad.

    There are some interesting places to eat and street life in the area.

    I did not bring in any girls but my guess is that that would be entirely unproblematic.

At the moment Redtop is the most promising, right by Classic. They wrote to me that their pool is 30 meters long and gave other very detailed measurements so I am assuming the information is correct. My only concern is that many reviews say Redtop has lousy wifi, which is also important for me. In the past I have stayed at the Borobodur near Monument Nasional, which has a fantastic pool set in its own park, but also weak wifi in the room. I will continue the research.
    If you like the Borobodur. I don't think you will find better (north of Monas) - maybe you can ask for a room with top wifi?

    Here's a couple other suggestions. But you should research them.

    - SariPan at Sarinah, I can't remember the pool size, but you can see it from the resto, its rectangle and maybe big enough?

    - Aryaduta, again pool out the back on about the 5th floor, can't remember the size, but I recall its a big rectangle one? Both close to the Borobudor.

    - The Media hotel in Kemayoran, was busted last year for allowing high school kids to organise an after school bikini party. They also hold regular (localised) events for pool parties, maybe worth a look? Never seen it myself.

    - Frazer residence and Hotel in Cikini (menteng) has a long lap pool. Its close to the Aryaduta, but starting to get too far from Classic if that's your objective.

    Hotel with long pool

    Biggest pool in North Jakarta is the Novotel Mangga Dua. It refers to itself as "olympic size" but from memory is about 40 x 30.

    Further away, but the Atlet Century Park has a full size pool. Its used by a lot as a training pool due to the number of athletes that stay at the hotel and its proximity to the Stadium (the real one not the disco!) and sports ovals across the road.

    USPete beat me to it. I was going to suggest Wahid Hasyim and I agree with Ibis Jakarta, and as late twenties guy you may even pull girls in the evening in that area, or at Beergarden next door to the hotel or Sarinah. All very close.

    And the'Cozie, well it isn't the best location as its on a busy road, but its very close to the blokm bars and blokm mall, and has a nice little rooftop bar.

    Both good choices.

    As a first timer you would probably enjoy staying in or near one of the budget hotels along Jl Wahid Hasyim, Thamrin which gives you easier access and transport to the tourist stuff, and certainly nearer the pickup malls.

    I would go for 8/9 night nears Sarinah Thamrin and 4 nights South in Blok M / Melawai.

    Booking.Com is more reliable than Agoda though they're owned by the same outfit..

    Hey guys,

    I've booked a flight to Jakarta in mid April for the duration of 2 weeks. My eye fell across the G7 hotel, its a 10 minute walk from the national monument and appears to be in the same street as Classic Hotel (which ID like to try at least ones).

    This will be my first stay in Jakarta and besides doing some sightseeing my main goal of the trip will be to monger. Planning to do most of my action via social media and mall pickups but I'm also a fan of massages.

    Now for that I need a proper mall within walking distance of my hotel so I was wondering if the G7 hotel falls into this category (I've tried to RTFF and use Google but there are just too many malls for me to figure it out). And if not which area or hotel you would suggest.

    The G7 hotel for 13 nights would set me back $400 and it scores a 8.1 on booking.com so I was looking for something in a similar price category.

    - 6'4 guy in his late twenties from western Europe.

    - I don't speak a word of the local tongue.

    - $100 dollar budget / day outside of the hotel.

    Thanks in advance!

    I normally have a local sim card in my tablet with data and use waze or google maps to check the fastest route when getting a cab. The cab drivers have appreciated me helping them find out where the traffic is and which way is fastest so far. With the current state of the traffic, I would seriously advise anyone to use waze / google maps to get around. It's also helped when the driver doesn't know your destination. I was staying at The Hermitage in Menteng and very few drivers knew their way there at all. Gorgeous hotel, great service and only spoiled by a couple of flies disturbing my breakfast. Thankfully the bill wasn't on my tab as the rooms were 2. 6 million with breakfast.
