Where to stay in Bogor



Bogor

Bogor’s main attraction, the botanical gardens, is mostly surrounded by large mid- to top-range hotels of varying standards, and near the train station you’ll find a handful of tired and overpriced guesthouses. Head back a few blocks in any direction though, and you’ll find that the quality and value improves. If it’s too far to walk, local minibuses (angkutan) are frequent and cheap.


7 Jalan Pakuan, Baranangsiang, Bogor
400,000 to 1,000,000 Rp
D’Anaya Hotel
Midrange - 400,000 to 1,000,000 Rp
7 Jalan Pakuan, Baranangsiang, Bogor
T: (0251) 839 0120

If a smart contemporary midrange is what you’re after, look no further than D’Anaya Hotel, one kilometre to the botanical gardens and much better value than hotels facing the park. Built around a courtyard swimming pool, the modern multi-storey block sits on the corner of a busy road, so choose an internal facing room for a quieter sleep. Deluxe rooms are spacious and Suites are capacious... Read our full review of D’Anaya Hotel.

Flashpacker - 150,000 to 400,000 Rp
22 Jalan Pemuda, Bogor
T: (0251) 833 7511

Jeng Tini Guesthouse is our top flashpacker pick in Bogor, and although it’s a little bit of a walk (2.4 kilometres) to the botanical gardens (or a short angkutan ride), it more than makes up for it in value, comfort and style. Housed in what looks like a converted suburban bungalow, and set back from the road within a leafy garden, Jeng Tini offers neat, spotless and bright rooms in...

Tom’s Homestay
Backpacker - Under 150,000 Rp
32 Jalan Selot, Bogor

If you are old enough, cast your mind back to before internet, perhaps even before guidebooks were commonplace when travellers learnt of places to stay via word of mouth, when basic friendly losmen were the only option for budget travellers in Indonesia, and you may start to picture Tom’s Homestay. Tom’s house is a hop skip and a jump from the botanical gardens, and was originally built... Read our full review of Tom’s Homestay.

Dorms are few and far between in Bogor, but Cendana Mulia Hostel, three kilometres to the botanical gardens delivers the goods. Located in a small quiet street, Cendana Mulia is decked out with two comfortable six-bed air-con dorms and four private double rooms with share bathrooms in an I-need-my-sunglasses-vibrant-sunny-yellow double-storey suburban house. The colourful paintwork continues... Read our full review of Cendana Mulia Hostel.

38 Jalan Sawojajar, Bogor
T: (0251) 838 1633

Just off one of Bogor’s main arteries, Jalan Jendral Sudirman, and less than a kilometre to the Botanical gardens, Wisma Bogor Permai is a small and simple but cosy guest house—a little worn at the edges but with enough charm to feel “classic” rather than simply old. The imposing style street-side building that houses the lobby lounge and cafe and perhaps the family home, looks like... Read our full review of Wisma Bogor Permai.
