“Value for Traveller Dollar (rupiah)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

After arriving by train, the taxi driver had so much trouble finding this little gem tucked away down a lane. Make sure you print off a map. And take a torch if you are walking back at night.
This really is someone's house in quite a nice area! With only six rooms available, you would most likely need to book ahead ( www.bangka-bnb.com ).Some rooms have a shared bathroom, but we had the Borneo Room with its own ensuite. From our room we had views across to Jakarta city skyline. Unfortunately all rooms only have a double bed, but a single bed was quickly put on the floor when we arrived (though I had specifically booked "twin")-with only a small blanket as a cover. However, I think it was still good value for travelling money at Rp400 000pn. Breakfast was supplied-no choice which made it hard for my vegan travelling companion.Some fruit, eggs on toast. Tea and coffee making facilities were available at all times. And free wifi in the rooms. Only Ricco has good English-if you can't speak Bahasa Indonesia!
If you don't mind a bit of a walk, there is lots of eating places nearby (from warung to restaurants), or staff at BB&B are happy to get a taxi for you. Or plenty of bajai (small 3-wheeled taxis) zip around the area, which you can just hail down.
So, would I stay here again. Most likely. In such a big city, I felt safe here, and felt BB&B offered good value.

Room Tip: The Borneo Room has its own ensuite, with views across to the Jakarta skyline.

I've been staying at the bangka bed and breakfast for 2 months now and i cannot wish for anymore out of my accommodation. The price is extremely cheap ($250 AUD per month), the location is ideal (close to the main kemang shops, bars, restaurants and clubs). The staff are very welcoming and will look after all my needs. They help me organise transportation, laundry, etc. For the cheap price this is all i need, the rooms have aircondition and cable television, so even if you want to stay in, you will never get bored. Therefore for the very cheap price i rate this place a 10/10 and i would extremely recommend it especially if you dont have thousands of dollars to spend on your acccommodation!

I really enjoyed my time here. Rooms are very big and comfortable and staff is more than kind, they offer you nice friendship and a very pleasant conversation.

At the time I was here, some problems with internet, but it was something related with the cable company, now it is solved.

The only "serious" complain is that Rini, a member of the staff, loves durian (for me it is a very stinky fruit) hahahahaha!

Room Tip: Any room here is excellent. Please take in consideration traffic jam to visit Jakarta. Better from 1...

Its my first trip to Jakarta after ten years and my friends booked me into this Bed and breakfast homestay. Its very centrally located near Kemang which is a trendy residential district in South Jakarta. We were welcomed by the very friendly Innkeeper Rico, and together with his staf Mojo they were most helpful with assisting us in everything. From buying food for us to giving practical advice on getting around town. Its a laid back homely setting, Simple breakfasts of eggs, bread and noodles. Certainly worth recommending for another trip.

this is good hotel, well-located in the center of city. They have restaurant and breakfast included with the price. my room was not bad as well, big & clean and a window. Jakarta was more busier than Hanoi. Staffs were friendly & anttentive, they told me some useful information about the city and free tour on Sunday, i took this trip but it was vey crazy!!! finally it was not bad in Jakarta!!!

Room Tip: stayed at the high floor as possible, because it was quite noisy outdise

I stayed here with my parents for one night in August before they caught an early morning flight. It is the only B&B I found while searching online. It is well-located in Kemang, but like everywhere in Jakarta, there are mosques nearby so the call to prayer woke my parents early in the morning. There was nothing out but plain bread for breakfast before my parents caught their flight so that was disappointing. Pricewise, the B&B falls into the Jakarta midrange and as such I wish they took credit cards.
