Central Jakarta

Chaotic cacophony pretty much sums up Central Jakarta, which is essential a non-stop thumping heart of Jakarta. It is a concoction of important government buildings, modern shopping complexes and thriving creative spaces. Revel in the historical MONAS (Museum Nasional) district, channel artistic vibes in the arsty Cikini area, or do some antique bargain hunting at Jalan Surabaya. Be in the thick of the action in Central Jakarta!
1. Mercure Jakarta Sabang

A stone’s throw away from well-known attractions such the National Monument and Museum Nasional, it is also a walking distance from Gambir Station which has an airport bus terminus, so you can take the bus from the airport. This is the epitome of slumming it on transport but living it up on room stay?
