“Absolutely wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We spent the last night of our trip in indonesia at this Guest house. It was the perfect place to do so!
The room was superclean and nice and the food was fantastic (so good that we nearly are too much)..
But what made our stay even more special were Don & Ita. We had such a nice time and they made us feel really at home. Ita even took me to a special bakery to buy 'spekkoek'. They are such lovely people and we will never forget our stay at this guest house! Thanks again!

We appreciate your review of us! We too enjoyed our chats with you, the laughter, the tears...because we laughed too hard about the silly things we encounter in our lives, in our travels. We were glad you felt at home with us as we also felt right at home with you....thanks for sharing your funny stories with us. Alessandra and Ita and I had such fun with you and Bas. Take care and all the best to you both! Don & Ita

One of the best (if not the best) bed and breakfast I had stayed!!!! Rooms are spotless and beautiful. It is located in a central but quite area of jakarta so you don't feel you are in such a chaotic city. It also has free and fast wireless. But what made our stay special was Don and Ita. They made us feel at home and among friends. The food was excellent, one of the best I had while visiting Indonesia actually. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it stay again here.

We just stayed 2 nights arriving first night at 2:30 am and Ita was there to greet us. After just 2 nights thought We were visiting friends! Don and Ita are so welcoming! Rooms are clean and your every need is met. Ita even took us around to show us some other beautiful areas of Jakarta and to the mall to pick up some items. They have an excellent cook, all the food was yummy! It happened to be my birthday and there was a special dessert at dinner. Could hardly pull ourselves away from the table in the evening as we were having such a good time talking even though we were exhausted. You will love staying With Ita & Don!

In november 2012 my wife and I stayed 3 nights in Maritim Guesthouse.
It was an excellent beginning of our two month trip through Indonesia. Good location in the south of Jakarta, nice clean and quiet room, good food and such nice people, Don and Ita.
Apart from sleeping whenever we felt to to unjetlag and doing some sightseeing we talked a lot about all kind of things with Don, former manager of a big hotel on Bali. We got along very well and sometimes we do even miss him. Together with him and his kokkie Ratna we went to the market where Ratna is doing her daily shopping. With Don and Ita, who also speaks English fluently, we went to the evening flower market. Ah, the smell of seder malam!
From Maritim Guesthouse you can easily reach Blok M and from there with the Transjakarta Bus to Kota and the Chinese market is not very long.
After we had made our reservation Don sent us a very helpful instruction how to get to his place from the airport (with what to tell the taxi driver in Bahassa Indonesia).
It is not a cheapie but we found it certainly worth our money.
Next time in Jakarta we certainly will stay at Maritim Guesthouse again.
Thank you Don and Ita.

Wow, thank you! Ita and I personally enjoyed you and your wife. I do wish to have more talks with you, it was so much fun to meet you both and for you to encourage me to come along with you to the markets, which was something I had wanted to do for a long time and because of your kind insistence, I finally did go out with you. It was fun and different for me as I usually make a hundred excuses to keep working. Thanks for the good memories, and your nice comments, we are glad you enjoyed our guest house and us too! Best wishes to you. Don & Ita

We had two days staying at the hostel. We loved the room because its decoration was lovely and easy to use. Addtionally, the owner was extremely helpful and thoughful by giving us the things to do in Jakarta, they could recommend some local restaurants with excellent value. Hotel was worth for value, breakfast was basically but need more ranges of choices. I would recommend the hostel for a short stay!!!!

Thank you for your review. We are glad you found us satisfactory and would recommend us to others. We will look into our breakfast offerings. We do offer differing freshly baked items for every breakfast and a variety of other items, like pancakes, eggs as you wish them to be prepared, Indonesian fried rice or noodles, etc. Possibly those items were not well communicated to you.
We are sorry for this but will still look into this matter to see how we can improve further. We hope you will return to MGH should you return to Jakarta. Thanks again.

An oasis of calm and serenity in Jakarta. Despite arriving at 2 in the morning, we were welcomed by the wonderful owner Ita. She, along with Ratna, were wonderful hosts. They arranged train tickets, taxis, meals etc. We highly recommend this guesthouse.

While it is raining & snowing in germany and the days getting colder, we are thinking about the wonderful time in CGK (Jakarta) - full of longing and happy hearts!

Thanks very much for having us.

Good luck for your very special and homely guesthouse including the most delicious cooking.

Merry Christmas and hugs from LEJ (Leipzig)
