“Oasis in Jakarta”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Highly recommended!!

My daughter and I felt like we were right at home during our short time in Jakarta thanks to the Maritim Guesthouse and the outstanding owners: Don and Ita. They both went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and we had many interesting and fun conversations with them.

We got in on Friday night from Bangkok, and were surprised to learn the money exchange wouldn't 't cash our American Express travelers cheques. We had enough Thai baht to convert to get us to the hotel but that was it. Ita went online to find a bank open on Saturday and then drove us to there herself! In the end, we were unsuccessful with the cheques but Don was able to make an exception, and charged my debit card to give us some cash. Thank you guys again so much!

Don includes all the airport departure tips you'll need in his emails including taxi tips. The location of the guesthouse is close to shopping malls and sights. Our room was big and comfortable.

Two homemade, delicious meals are included with the very reasonable nightly rate. Everything is made from scratch by Ita and Ratna and includes favorites like: fish curry, grilled chicken, apple cake, and brownies. Very enjoyable!

Thanks again for all your help and hospitality!

Sincerely, Janine and Maddie

This place is run extremely well by genuinely nice and caring professionals. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms have everything you need. Since they include breakfast and dinner, I got to try several meals from their fantastic cook. They offer a personal touch along with all the amenities and assistance you might need. Anyone planning to stay in the South of Jakarta should take a close look at Maritim Guest House, it is wonderful and a super value.

Wow!

If your looking for possibly the best food in town (breakfast and dinner included each day), the best staff (friendly, reliable and helpful), a good bed & bathroom, within a clean and safe environment then look no further..!!

To get to one of the best shopping centres in Indonesia (Pondok Indah Mall) cost me under $2 in a taxi.. what more could you ask for...!!

Just returned from staying at Maritim guest house for around 2 months...

After now will not pay to stay anywhere else in Jakarta!!
I now include the managers Don and Ita as part of my extended family... Love them both and hope to see them soon... :)

My wife and I arrived at the Maritim guesthouse, felling a bit worse for wear after having both suffered tummy upsets whilst in Cianjur. Although we arrived early at 8am, we were warmly welcomed by Ita and shown to a lovely bedroom where we could relax and rest. She made us a pot of tea and brought it to us with some hot, freshly baked muffins. Our room was large with a very comfortable bed, and had a great bathroom. We stayed 3 nights at the guest house and each night we had a fantastic Indonesian meal, the spiciness of which was adjusted to our taste. Breakfasts were also delicious, with a choice of cereals, eggs, pancakes, freshly baked bread and muffins. In fact, the food in the guest house was some of the best we had during our six months travels in SE Asia. Near the guest house, there is some great shopping at Pondok Indoh Mall and it also easy to get to the Kota area in North Jakarta, on the Busway service from Block M, which is just a short taxi ride away from the guest house. We left the Maritim after 3 nights feeling totally refreshed and revitalised. As other reviewers have said, this really is "a little gem" in Jakarta. Ita, Ratna and the rest of the staff made us feel so welcome and we really didn't want to leave. Don, who I had corresponded with quite a bit by email before our arrival, was away whilst we were there. Hopefully, when we return to the Maritim, we will be able to meet him as well.
