    Airbnb apartment security / concierge

    Hey USPete,

    Did you bring any BATS / CJ's talent back to your airbnb pad? How did security / concierge? I am wondering if security / concierge in a serviced apartment (such as ascott / Grove Suites) act differently from a family friendly apartment?

    Update: Figured that the best & absolute way to get my question answered will be to stay at an airbnb joint for a few days. So I went ahead and booked it. Will report back after my stay

    Thanks.

    Chuday.

    The Morrisssey Apartment Suite rooms (recommend requesting the upper floors) was really fantastic for a few years as it's got a pristine KRL station that speeds up to old Batavia in 15 minutes and Ya Udah restaurant across the road but I've burnt my britches and made the mistake of becoming too familiar with the floor staff (borrrowing the rooftop pool keys for night time skinny dips etc).
    It's been a while since I stayed at Morrissey. Some fine memories there including the pool that was really hardly patronized (at least back then) but have been at the Aryaduta Semanggi and most recently Grove Suites. The Aryaduta gives you a lot of space if you can manage to get it at a reasonable rate. The reason I didn't stay there last time was because the price was crazy at that time. Always book the single bedroom unit though and then figure out if you want their "upgrade" to the three bedroom unit. I have always received this offer when checking in. I wouldn't take it as I prefer their one or two bedroom units. But you could hardly refuse someone bringing up more than one girl to a three bedroom apartment could you?

I would imagine Fraser being similar. I stayed at Grove Suites (by Grand Aston) last week and found it much the same. I liked it for the option of coming in from the Epicentrum side instead of the long walk in from the entrance. Also could go straight from the car park up to the room if that lift wasn't out of order. Don't think you need an apartment for a "party" US Pete, I've had a few girls up to my room when I was staying in hotels before, but yes, the space is appreciated.

    I also have a 30 year old bad habit of playing house music too loud at 3 am and don't think it's fair on the neighbours in the hotel rooms with paper thin walls, so on weekends I opt for an apartment.

    The Morrisssey Apartment Suite rooms (recommend requesting the upper floors) was really fantastic for a few years as it's got a pristine KRL station that speeds up to old Batavia in 15 minutes and Ya Udah restaurant across the road but I've burnt my britches and made the mistake of becoming too familiar with the floor staff (borrrowing the rooftop pool keys for night time skinny dips etc).

    Morrisssey has become a victim of it's own success and is now overrun with digital nomads, gap yah kids and missionarys (promoting christianity and / or Apple) for my liking. It's become a hotel / apartment that's ambience seems more like Bangkok than Jakarta which for me sucks but for many is what they want.

    What's the scene in the serviced apartments like Ascott / Frasers etc? Anyone have any info on these places?

    Appreciate some info.

    A better question would be "which places in Jakarta are not girl friendly"? I think Syariah hotel is the only one and I've never heard anyone even consider staying there.

    Thank You

    MS and US Pete, thanks for the info. Ascott next to PI is one of the options.

    Cheers,

    I stayed at the Ascott (near Plaza Indonesia) several years ago and there was absolutely no problem in bringing girls to the room. I also had a masseuse from a nearby MP come by two separate evenings (in her masseuse uniform) for an excellent massage followed by even better FS.

    Main benefits of the apartments is you can invite multiple girls to a "party".

    Girl friendly and near action. You are kidding. I hope you are. All Seasons Jakarta is at the back of Millenium nightclub and round the corner from Malioboro. All in walking distance. Can't say much about the hotel itself, never stayed there, but location wise, slap, bang, in the middle.

    Monthly Rental in Jakarta?

    Hey all: Am planning a month-long trip back to Jakarta after a few years and I am looking for an apartment / service apartment to rent for a month, at a monthly rate. Any suggestions?

    In the past, I have stayed at the Taman Rasuna apartments for a month, cost me only something like 5 million rupiah plus electric / internet for the entire month.

    I also stayed for 3 weeks once at Home Inn / Kuningan Junction, it was about 6 million, it was quite good except for the walk to the main streets, but latest reviews show it has become rundown.

    Ideally, I would like something for about 7 million or less. Central and south Jakarta are best for me.

    Thanks!

    Hoiliday Inn Express. Thamrin

    I am staying at the HI in Thamrin the hotel is close to Plaza Ind and has fair amenities. There is a gym small but useable, free Wi fi in the rooms and breakfast is included. Something of a rarity in Jakarta (breakfast).

    The rooms are small but clean and functional, the TV has some English channels not a lot but the usual CNN, and movies.

    There are no eating places nearby but a short walk to PI and there are lots of places to choose.

    I don't think it makes much difference. The two hotels are 2 or 3 miles apart. Mulia is more convenient to Blok M, Shangrila to North Jakarta.
