Upon arrival in Jakarta, you need to deal with many things—getting settled to your job, finding a house/apartment, getting your kids enrolled in school, buying or leasing a car, and many more. Until you find a suitable housing and get settled down with your life in Jakarta, there are many options for you to stay in. You can stay in a hotel, guest house or serviced apartments before you find the perfect residence.

Jakarta has extensive options of serviced apartments for short stay as well as long stay. These are available all over Jakarta, from the CBD area in Sudirman to the northern Jakarta in Pluit. The options come in different sizes, facilities, benefits, and price as per your preference. In Jakarta, expats can rent on a monthly basis with upfront payment. But it is cheaper to rent for a longer period of time, for example six months to a year.

Why serviced apartments?

Serviced apartments are fully furnished apartments which are available for both short-term as well as long-term stays. They usually offer hotel-like amenities such as swimming pool, restaurants, gym, children’s playground, and many more. Serviced apartments include all convenience of hotel rooms with less expensive than hotels for longer stay.

South and Central Jakarta are the most popular areas among expats in Jakarta. In these areas, there are many apartment blocks that offer serviced apartments for both short stay and long stay. These areas also have easy access to central business districts, shopping malls, and other important facilities like hospitals. The convenience, facilities, and affordable prices offered by serviced apartments are the reasons why most foreigners choose to stay there rather than other housing options.

Most serviced apartments consist of 1 to 4 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom, and dining room. Some are also equipped with other small bedroom for household staff, which is usually connected to kitchen or laundry room. All are fully furnished so you don’t have to worry if your household stuff has not arrived in Indonesia yet.
