“Budget hotel near the airport...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

A good option when you needed to be in the airport early in the morning. I like the interior of the room.. the bright colors made the room look so vibrant. The room is clean. They have a free shuttle service to the airport but if you're flight is very early, you can ask the staff to call a taxi or arrange a car rental service to pick you up at the hotel. Taxi/car rental to airport cost around IDR 50,000.

I always wanted to stay at the POP! Hotel because it sounded like a hotel with fresh ideas and some uniqueness about it. While it does have its own unique style....some of that unique style may be "too" unique. It's hard to beat this hotel for the price, ESPECIALLY near the airport in Jakarta. Thank you POP! Hotel for being more affordable than others!

The hotel is decently clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful (though it seemed they may have been overwhelmed for some reason). We stayed in a room with 2 beds. For those that are not families or close friends this could be a little weird. Reason for the potential weirdness is that the 2 mattresses were on the same base board with only a small (1 inch) partition separating you. They do have extra places to sit with a long bench-like seat.

The shower pod was so different, I wasn't sure what to think. It is a very different idea for a bathroom. It was almost like a port-a-potty, but it was fine. The A/C works well and you have free internet in every room. There is no phone in the room.

There is not much around the POP! Hotel Airport Jakarta. It is kind of off by itself leaving the travelers to either get a taxi to go find food or walk. BUT they have started some things to help alleviate this problem. In the basement is a small convenience store where you can buy snacks. Also next door to the hotel is a small "coffee shop"/"restaurant". Don't expect Starbucks or your local coffee shop that actually cares about good coffee. Just a push of a button and there you go, your machine made coffee is ready to go. The food in this restaurant is Indonesian food, ie fried rice with egg, fried rice and chicken, chicken soup, Rawon (which is a beef soup with rice), etc.

The rooms are more on the small side, but nothing that would be too much of a problem for the price paid.

The shuttle was a hard thing to deal with. It only picks up guests every 2 hours from the airport and will not deviate from this schedule. On top of that it stops going to the airport from 10 pm-5 am........that is too bad because most of the international flights leave at 4, 5, or 6 am... and you have to be there 2 hours prior to your flight departure. This is something the management needs to fix, especially if they want reach out to the international community. Though they do offer taxis at a price (50,000 rupiah) to take you anytime you need to the airport, just schedule it first.

And, probably the worst thing, mosquitoes. Now, those of us traveling around Jakarta and Indonesia know the mosquitoes are a force to be feared...they just won't die. But most hotels around Jakarta will deal with this problem by having enclosed buildings, electric mosquito zappers, spray, or a more green solution plants that naturally repel mosquitoes. But POP! Hotel Airport Jakarta was ridden with the vampires. Be warned.

So in short:

The good:
There is A/C
TV (especially during World Cup season)
Hot Water
The Price
The distance from the airport (only a 15 minute drive or less depending on traffic)
WIFI is pretty strong

The Bad:
No stores or restaurants nearby that are easily reached (unless you are fine with Indonesian food)
The Free Shuttle service
MOSQUITOES

Well, if you can deal with mosquitoes, you don't need a shuttle in the middle of the night, and you can eat Indonesian food, this hotel is definitely a good option and for the price so close to the airport....it's hard to pass this one up.

I love the interior, especially for the bathroom. Very clean and convenience for transit traveler. They provide a free shuttle service to the airport and a simple breakfast.
Beside that, for the guest that need a transport to the airport early in the morning they provide a shuttle car with a reasonable cost (IDR 50.000).
I definitely will choose this hotel again for my next transit at Jakarta.

This is a great transit hotel near the airport. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We love the shower pod. I really appreciated that they let me store my luggage here for free for a long time (about 18 days), which saved me a lot of money in comparison to storing it at the airport.

Only two minor complaints really:

1) It's not the best neighborhood, but this is to be expected when staying near the airport. It is possible to walk to nearby "warungs" for food, but options are quite limited.

2) The airpot transfer schedule is a bit limiting. You will still need a taxi for early morning or late night departures and arrivals. There is not a great system for arranging an airport pick-up when you arrive. I had to call the headquarters to get the number of the hotel and the driver of the transfer van. It would have been very difficult to get picked up had I not had a local cell phone number and been able to speak bahasa.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views of surrounding area, which isn't really that pretty.

We've stayed here for one night in between flights (Bali - Jakarta - Bangkok). Very clean and convenient hotel for a couple. Nice beds, tv and lovely hot shower. The receptionist offered us free shuttle service to the airport in the early morning (15 min drive). The hotel provides free tea & cookies between 5-7pm, and a free breakfast box for those leaving early (like us). Really cool and these little touches make the atmosphere really pleasant. Good value for money! Finally enough plugs, a nice bed and enough towels. Rooms are small but for us that doesn't matter at all. No noise from the planes. They brought me to the nearest ATM by scooter, 5 minutes away (free, yet I gave the driver a small tip). Only reason why I don't grade it 5/5 is because of the location (not that much to do and once you walk out of the driveway, only small dark streets with a lot of garbage, like most of Jakarta unfortunately).
Thank you for the service!

Great showers, very new and great movie channels. Having been in Java for a month we thought that this place was really good value (especially compared to our stay at Istana Ratu on Jalan Jaksa). The shuttle service is 50k flat for the car to the airport so not that bad and the drivers are on call at all times. We would definitely stay here if we needed to get away from the airport early again. A good hotel. The room we had had great WiFi as well.
