Tamara Guesthouse has a total of 21 uniquely designed guestrooms and has been operational since 1988. The quality of the rooms and the amenities are comparable to that of a 3-star hotel but the prices range from €24.00 to €50.00 per day per room (for double occupancy).

Our moderate rated guesthouse is located at the southern part of Jakarta, which our guests normally call "the new Jakarta" or "Village of the Foreigners". Because when people stay on this side of Jakarta, they really don't need to come to the northern nor the central part every day, since most of the tourists and ex pats activities are in the south.

South Jakarta has everything anyone would need, especially foreigners. There are quite a number of foreign schools, foreigners supermarket for you to feel at home (CarreFour, Makro), by keeping the original and authentic atmosphere of the country, though you're thousands of miles away from home.

The South is now also called the Paradise of Jakarta because most of the happenings are here where the air is cleaner than in any of the 5 other districts of Jakarta.

We´re situated almost at the valley of the mountain and yet only 15 - 20 minutes from the hot spots, souvenirs paradise combined with streets full of pubs & clubs. The world is right there at your feet!!! You'll be right in the middle of the Jewel of Asia, with thousands of different cultural shows and million types of souvenirs.
It really is a much bigger central spot compared to the old ones and what everybody calls the Blok M Central of tourism resort spot has been here for more than 18 years. Our guesthouse is only 15 minutes by car and 20 minutes by bus from Blok M, the area of everything and anything you could possibly be looking for. You can shop till you drop,
( that's the very common phrase here in our area ).

You'll easily find yourself standing in the middle of an area full of tropical fruits stalls as if you were dreaming.
The fresh juices they present you is also cooling your throat, in the middle of the heat of the noon time, a perfect match to your exotic typical Indonesian lunch. Well, until you see it, you'll never know it.
Stroll around and treat yourself because these stalls are really so seductively attractive. Food from all over the world can be found in Block M as well as exciting night life & karaoke clubs where you can dance the night away.

We know that tourists don't always like to stay downtown in the middle of the hectic /busy traffic or noisy surroundings except when they're touring!! We also know that they value tranquillity , because when they come back from touring and shopping the noise just simply has to disappear for a while.

We hope to welcome you soon to this part of the world and especially to our guesthouse!
