Our second visit here after a two years ago. We get here by KRL (electric train). It's an old dutch style station. People used to go here to continue their trip to Kota Tua (Jakarta Old Town) with lots of museums and/or Pasar Asemka.

Building of a well-preserved Dutch colony relic station. The atmosphere of this station is in harmony with the surrounding area which is also an old town area.

It was crowdy, but still, you can find every spot to take photos. However some station officers said that we need to have permission to have photos taken here. Easy to access other part of Jakarta since it was the central station of Jakarta.

There are lots of convenience store and place to eat while waiting for the train or take a break. You must buy a ticket or use E-Money as an access to go to or out of the platform.... More

Toilets are not very clean and little bit poor. It would be wise to modernise the toilet areas and give maintaine more attention.

Lively and vibrant historical central rail station. This is the last stop on your travel by rail to the old part of Jakarta.

Once i was going to Purwakarta by train and bought ticket in this station. It was great even though i felt so crowded here because of the holiday. But overall i can in some cafes or outside the station until the train is ready to depart.

Kota Station is biggest station. I like interior and architecture of its station. For those whom like old city and photography, Kota Station is recommended for you.
