Hi Richard, how do you do? I am informed that I can get some information from you about the driver you referred to my friends. I engaged the driver because my friend suggested to and I have questions about his service. There are no bad complaints I have but as a matter of fact his service are top of the class for being a chauffeur. I engaged some drivers in Jakarta before and to compare I really think this driver win hands down when it comes to service, communications, disciplinary driving and patience. I hired him last month for Rp400.000 to drive me around. He came and fetch me in a BMW 5 series '03. My friends didn't ride in the BMW before but a 7 seater car. I can assume that I had only my girlfriend with me and my friends were 6 pax in total. Here is my question,

- the price I paid is cheap for quite a high class car or is that one of his service?

- if I engage him again should he be able to drive the BMW again?

- how old is the driver?

- possible that I hire him on pertrip basis?

Thank you in advance.

hi icy , iHotel isn't that far from Wey Wey Seafood .

i do not advise walking because there are no walkpaths for pedestrians .

a cab will cost you about Rp40.000 at most for only less than 10 minutes .

the restaurant is located just next to the Harbour Bay Ferry Terminal on the left , facing the sea .
