“exotic cottage in jakarta”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

We've been 3 times in this cottage, what we like is nice little cottage with view to sea or lake, swimming pool is between on boat between sea and beach. Its a shame they build convention centre just beside pool, so when we swimming, people from convention centre is look at you. Breakfast is great as indonesian buffet and international. In the night we can walk to le bridge ( its long bridge on the sea, beside it have mcdonalds, pizza hut and seafood restaurant, love it, we're never forget this hotel

Room Tip: If you are in indonesia, call kaha travel agen, they gave cheaper deal

The hotel is located conveniently to get there from the airport (40 minutes if traffic is moving, less than 100,000 rupiah to airport incl. toll), visit the Old Town-Kota (20 minutes and app. 22,000 rupiah), sail to Thousand Islands or for family fun in theme parks (e.g. 10 minutes walk from aquapark). Good breath from Jakarta, far away from the real Jakarta. You need taxi to get anywhere outside Ancol.

Staff is very welcoming and helpful. We stayed outside weekend, so it was not busy. It is a great opportunity to meet Indonesians. We were probably the only foreigners at the time, so everything seemed to be very authentic.Good breakfasts including elements of traditional Indonesian and continental European food. Dishes a la carte - average in terms of quality and price. Nothing to be excited about, but convenient.

As the reception and the restaurant are in a good technical shape, cottages are a bit run down. Bathrooms definitely require substantial refresh. Swimming pool is a joke - inside a ship on dark waves of the Jakarta Bay. Suitable for some children only, also requiring refresh.We experienced freezing and flooding air conditioning which set itself on 18 degrees and did not allow for any extravagances allowing us to avoid getting cold in tropics. Staff reacted after the second (nervous call) and solved the A/C leaking issue, but nothing could be done to control the temperature.

Assuming - good choice for sleeping the jet lag and focussing on coastal attractions of Jakarta.

Room Tip: executive cottages are located close to the restaurant and main reception area - convenient, but may...

My boyfriend asked me to join with him and his friends to stay one night at Putri Duyung Cottage. So, here we go, and this is my first time stayed inside Gelanggang Samudra Ancol area which is located at North Jakarta, Indonesia. We are stayed at 'Kuda Laut' area. The cost for one night in weekend about 2 millions rupiah. This price is too expensive, I guess, because we only got 2 simple bedsteads, one bathroom and some sofas for watching TV. Its really shocked us because we are all 12 members. So, how we gonna sleep with only 2 simple bedsteads. Our rooms have a lake view area, but we distracted by the noisy songs from a stage inside Ancol. The weather is so hot, so we just played and stayed inside our room. In Putri Duyung, we could ride a bicycle around Putri Duyung cottage area. We are prohibited to ride outside Putri Duyung cottage, I don't know why, but I felt bored because for only 10 minutes I already rode around Putri Duyung.
My suggestions is If you need some escape away and far away from noisy, don't stay in here.

Reviewed 27 December 2011

Stayed here for one night in Dec. 2011 with a group of families. We rented two cottages.The cottages, I assumed like others there, were pretty old but very nicely and cleanly kept. Rooms, beds, kitchen, bathroom; just about everything in the cottage was clean.

The surroundings were also kept nice and clean. There was a kids play area in the middle of the complex with see-saw and swings. Also available bicycles, tricycles, and quadcycles to rent.

The complex was located near many restaurants so don't be bound to the hotel's restaurants.

Breakfast provided at the hotel's restaurant was good, variety wise. However, the food was practically had no tastes; very plain. Quite disappointing.

Overall, the experience was very good.
