the comfort of staying with a big international chain to be extra sure.

Jakarta is one of the best places in the world to indulge in a bit of 5-star luxury. The best hotels in the city are all incredibly affordable for international standards, meaning everyone has a chance to enjoy the city in style. This is why, exceptionally, half of the hotels on our list are 5-star. If you really are traveling on a shoestring, quality budget options also abound.
Jakarta doesn’t have any gay saunas, but a couple of the hotels on this list have saunas that are commonly frequented by gay men. Public sex is illegal and can get you in a lot of trouble in Indonesia, so if you are thinking of meeting someone in the saunas, it is recommended you stay in the hotel so you have a private room upstairs.

The Westin Jakarta occupies the top 20 floors of Gama Tower, the tallest building in Indonesia. This incredible vantage point, combined with the tower’s location at the heart of the Setiabudi business district, gives The Westin the best views in the city. This is as luxurious as it gets in Jakarta, and rooms are available for as little as $100 a night.

The rooms feature gorgeous modern decor and large floor-to-ceiling windows from which to appreciate the view. Wake up on a patented ultra-comfortable bed with a fresh cup of illy coffee and complimentary digital newspapers, or luxuriate in the marble bathrooms with rain shower and separate soaking tub.

The hotel is located in the Golden Triangle area of Jakarta, where the best restaurants and bars in the city are located. Apollo Bar & Club, one of the only gay venues in the city, is a 20-minute walk away from the hotel.

That said, you won’t really have to leave the hotel to party: Henshin, The Westin’s trendy resident bar, is one of the hottest spots in town. Spanning three floors and with unmatched city views, it is generally gay-friendly and popular with local guys. The bar also serves deliciously unique Japanese-Peruvian fusion food.

There is a fabulous fitness studio with 360° views of the city, as well as an indoor pool for swimming laps and an excellent in-house spa.

Shangri-La Hotel is located just next to Jakarta’s city center, but it’s easy to forget that once you’re inside. This huge hotel, totaling over 600 rooms, is located in a sprawling oasis next to the river. With a huge lagoon-style pool, several restaurants, and swaying palm trees as far as the eye can see, this is perhaps the closest you can get to an Indonesian beach resort in the middle of the capital.

Of course, Jakarta is still very much around you, as seen through skyline city views from most rooms. The decor in these is elegant, blending classic luxury with contemporary touches. The beds are large and plushy and the amenities are all high-quality. Attentive touches like complimentary mineral water and a daily fruit plate elevate the whole experience even further.

Shangri-La Hotel boasts five restaurants and three bars, serving a wide range of foods and drinks. Among these, you will find SATOO, a stunning international buffet with a whopping twelve food stations from around the world, as well as authentic Chinese, Japanese, and Italian restaurants.

The pool is, of course, the hotel’s biggest draw, and the separate kids’ pool keeps the main area nice and quiet. There is also a good fitness suite, an exercise studio, and even a set of tennis courts. Spa facilities including jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, massages, and other wellness treatments.

The hotel’s proximity to the Golden Triangle means that most trendy nightlife spots in the city are easily reached by public transport or on foot. There is a loop line train stop (Karet) a short walk from the hotel, which can be handy for getting around the city. As usual in Jakarta, BusWay stops are also easy to find nearby.

This 5-star hotel in West Jakarta is a top seller on Hotels.com and is within the top 30 hotels in the city on TripAdvisor. It is mainly popular with business travelers, but the stylish design and convenient location make it a great choice for all types of visitors. As a large international chain, Pullman is also a good choice for a gay-friendly Jakarta hotel, and the standard of service is particularly high.

The hotel features bold design throughout, with contemporary art and tones of black, grey, and red creating a striking effect. The rooms also feature this distinctive look, paired with excellent city views from floor-to-ceiling windows. Amenities include rain showers, robes and slippers, and a large LCD TV.

There is one bar and one restaurant, the latter which serves a delicious buffet breakfast with 12th-floor city views. The hotel gym also comes with views, although the equipment could do with an update. The hotel also features a good-quality spa and a narrow outdoor swimming pool which is ideal for splashing or doing a few laps.

The hotel is located in one of the best places in the city for shopping addicts. The hotel is part of a complex built around Central Park mall, which offers a large selection of shops and restaurants as well as a pleasant park. However, it’s worth walking a bit further to the mall next door. Taman Anggrek is the biggest shopping center in Indonesia, with over 500 stores and up to 100,000 visitors every day.

Pullman Jakarta Indonesia is perfectly located in the heart of the CBD area, walking distance from Merdeka Square and the National Monument. This central location places it close to many of the city’s nightlife hotspots, such as SKYE, one of the city’s glitziest rooftop bars. You will also find one of the city’s top luxury shopping centers just across the road from the hotel, with shops ranging from Gucci to Louis Vuitton.

The hotel itself is as luxurious as its surroundings, with a modern, high-concept decor. The rooms are elegant but understated, in tones of beige, white, and grey that give the space a relaxed vibe. There is a wide range of room sizes and styles, from a relatively compact Superior Room to lavish suites and apartments.

The dining options are plentiful and consistently high-quality, from an award-winning international buffet to one of the best Japanese restaurants in the city. Meanwhile, smaller casual spots like a chocolate lounge and a cafe bakery are ideal for a quick treat during the day. And of course, there is also UNA, a rooftop bar to rival any of Jakarta’s high-altitude watering holes.

Millenium Sirih Jakarta offers incredible value in the heart of the city, with 5-star amenities available for as little as $45 a night. The hotel’s design may be on the old-fashioned side, but the quality of service and standard of upkeep make this an excellent choice for travelers who aren’t too focused on ultra-modern design.

Rooms are supremely comfortable, offering plush beds, elegant marble bathrooms, and large bathtubs. Given the hotel’s affordable rates, it is worth upgrading to a Club Room, which comes with access to the Club Lounge for breakfast, daily treats, and evening cocktails. If you really want to treat yourself, you could even splurge on one of the spacious suites.

The hotel has a lovely bakery and snack bar as well as a cozy restaurant serving both Indonesian and international cuisines. There is also a spa, an pleasant outdoor pool, and a well-equipped gym. The hotel sauna is one of the city’s covert gay spots, often frequented by gay men.

The hotel is technically a 5-star, but the room amenities are probably closer to a 4-star. The decor isn’t particularly lavish, especially in the lower categories of room, but the rooms are consistently comfortable and clean. All rooms have a good shower and bathtub, but if you want to splurge, the Ambassador and Presidential suites come with a city view-facing jacuzzi tub.

The Manhattan has a very good array of dining and drinking options, including three restaurants and two bars. There is a small rooftop infinity pool which makes up for its size with excellent views over the city, and a large and well-equipped gym.

Unlike most of the hotels on this list, Swiss-Belhotel Mangga Besar is located in North Jakarta. Concretely, it sits in between the bustle of Central Jakarta and the seaside leisure neighborhood of Ancol (about a 15-minute drive from either). This is an especially good location if you are visiting in summer, as you’ll be able to make the most of the beach and theme park in Ancol without sacrificing the more cultural side of Jakarta.

The rooms are bright and well-appointed, with large windows that offer great views of the city. The family suite is ideal for a group of four, and the Honeymoon Suites with jacuzzi are a great choice for couples. Some of the rooms are slightly worn, but the hotel’s price range still makes this a very good value choice.

The restaurant serves a good breakfast as well as various international cuisines throughout the day. There is a very nice indoor swimming pool and an excellent spa. This hotel sauna is one of Jakarta’s underground gay meeting spots, with gay men often coming here to mingle and relax. This makes the Swiss-Belhotel a popular choice for gay travelers looking to meet other guys.
