This hotel is clean and comfortable, located in Mangga Besar area which is surrounded with lots of restaurants, entertainments, and street food stalls. The hotel is suitable for young couples, group of friends and business trip. It is near to Old City, Glodok (a mall where you can buy cheap electronics), Gajah Mada (a mall where you can find luxury... More

We made reservations via booking.com and the clerk was expecting us. Even though the hotel doesn't offer laundry, the clerk was nice enough to take it to a laundry service and didn't charge us extra. The clothes were clean and washed the same day! The room was very clean and the beds were excellent. We had the one without windows... More

Room was really nice, staff were very helpful and friendly. Hotel difficult to find, took the taxi driver a while to locate. I suggest printing of a mini map from Google to speed things up... Location isn't very touristy, on a side road in between a brothel and some scary locals . One stopped us in a taxi we had... More

Stayed 2 nights on return to JKT. Comfortable clean room for 2 people with super HC shower, effective AC and strong WIFI. Short walk to major bus route on Gajah Mada (Olima stop) for easy access to Kota, Merdeka square, Jalan Jaksa and Pacific place. Surrounded by lively street warungs at night including snakes which are interesting to see or... More

Wow Hotel can be very challenging to locate at first. Not all taxi drivers can take you there although Mangga Besar is a known, busy street. Just inform the driver that it is near Olympic Hotel at Mangga Besar 7 and before reaching to Olympic you will see Wow Hotel signage at your left side. Better print a map and... More

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... More

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... More
