I stayed at the Maritim Guest House for 2 nights and it was an absolute oasis in the hectic surrounds of Jakarta. I was warmly welcomed by Don and Ita and given great tips on what to see, do and how to get around. The Guest House is in a fairly good location to get to popular tourist sites and... More

I stayed for 1 night with my wife during dec 2014, though it was a short stay but still I can feel the warmth of the owners from both Don and Ita. The food was excellent~ and the owners make sure that everyone's full, no one will be left hungry at the dinner table. The food is home cooked and... More

I would highly recommend Maritim Guest House. Last month, I stayed there for almost a week and it was a delightful experience. Don and Ita consistently go above and beyond. We arrived in the middle of the night after a plane delay and they were both up to welcome and orient us to our rooms. My room was quiet, comfortable,... More

For everyone, personal or business, who seeks an oasis to recharge in Jakarta the Maritim is the place to be. I have experienced this terrific place 3 times now (august-november 14) and I am thrilled by its handy South Jakarta location, the first rate management, the warm welcome, the sustained service, the delicious breakfast, the equally delicious dinner, the respect...

Maritim Guest House is a jewel - a refuge from the busy city very conveniently located. Don and Ita helped us with all our logistics (airport maneuvering, taxis, change of airline tickets, moving around Jakarta, etc), and provided a "home away from home" that we returned to with gladness and relief for a second stay. The delicious meals at Maritime... More

I seriously can't stop gushing about this place - it was such a wonderful experience to stay six days at Maritim in the care of Don and Ita Smith. As others have said, it's quite a different experience than staying in a hotel because it's more like a true home and they genuinely care about you. The guest house has... More
