Now anything can be economical!
1. Yello Hotel Harmoni
As the name suggests, the main feature of this hotel is the bright yellow color that dominates the interior of the hotel. So , if you think this hotel is the same as most boutique hotels, then you are wrong because Yello Hotel is definitely more special. Even though it is a budget hotel, they provide a swimming pool and spa that can be used to pamper yourself.Not only that, there are also fun facilities for young people, namely the Game Station area where you can play games to your heart’s content, the Chill Zone area to relax with friends or family, and the Netzone for friends who need an internet connection. So guaranteed not to be bored, stay here! Kawanjo will also be greeted with an energetic and Instagenic hotel design.
Turning to the room area, each unit is decorated with special murals on the walls that will make anyone who sees it happy. Besides being able to improve the mood, these murals are also able to create an artsy impression that is fairly modern and contemporary in each bedroom. Therefore Yello Hotel is in great demand. The facilities and decorations are no joke!
2. Sakura Terrace Setiabudi
Located in a super strategic environment, precisely in the Platinum area of?Jakarta, Sakura Terrace Setiabudi in fact not only sells places that are close to anywhere but also sells interiors that are designed like a sweet and minimalist Japanese house. Then interestingly again, this place is actually not a hotel but a micro apartment that can be rented monthly like a boarding house.With this concept, the use of space is highly optimized so that all needs can be properly facilitated. Building a mezzanine floor as an additional space is one strategy. So even though the room is relatively small, it doesn’t feel crowded because it is very well designed. The dominant color is pure white. Really comfortable!
Because it was built with the concept of a micro apartment , in each room there is also a kitchen for cooking. Not a pantry, you know! Facing directly towards Sudirman, the view from the cooking area becomes even more beautiful. Also equipped with a fairly large balcony decorated with fresh green plants, you can use this spot to take a break and take photos. Great!
Why is it called the Platinum location instead of the golden triangle? Because Friendjo will have super close access to Sudirman, Kuningan, Bundaran HI, SCBD, airport train station, Sudirman Station, Trans Jakarta bus stop , and also MRT stops, all of which can be approached just by walking! So it’s really suitable for those who want to vacation in Jakarta but don’t want to pay for expensive hotels.
3. Des Indes Menteng
Located in the Menteng area, the Des Indes hotel comes with a different look. As one of the oldest hotels in Indonesia and a relic of the Dutch era, this hotel has a classic colonial design that is still maintained today, so many people consider it unique and vintage in modern times like today.
