“In the Heart of Old Town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

It is the terminal for long-distance railway around Java. Located in the heart of Old Town historic buildings and surrounded by number of iconic Museums. My last experience was super crowded, on the street and in the station. There are some convenience store and cafe/kiosk if you're looking for one. Undoubtedly the architecture of the station is beautiful.

“Look up!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

It was an experience as we managed to talk to a few locals as we took the train from Gondangdia to Stasiun Jakartakota;
The main character has to be the architecture of the impressive ceilings of this Train Station and to see the hundreds of people transiting to the different destinations!
Amazing!

“Memorable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

It is always nice to stop at this station. It is old and dirty but it brings you an old time memory. If it is well groomed it can be an interesting tourist attraction
