Hartelijk dank voor alles, Rachel

The MARITIM Guesthouse is a beautiful, safe & quiet oasis in pretty much downtown hectic, polluted Jakarta.

Feeling honored to be the first official guest; I got a nice & comfortable room with all facilities with a hygienic clean, well designed bathroom and felt instantly at home. The gentle staff surrounded me with pleasant attention, and the cook produced every day delicious food using ingredients from the organic garden of the territory. She made very exclusive jams, muffins, fresh fruits for breakfast and always asked me what I wished for dinner, I most appreciated her flavoring Indonesian dishes. The food was really good, excellent tea, good coffee, organic ice-cream and cookies! Fantastic.

When I returned tired after a trip, the guards always recognized me and immediately the gate was opened, I felt protected.

I enjoyed to have conversations with Don, the thoughtful owner, and his wife and thus got useful tips about the must-sees and inside-outs of the metropolis. I felt terribly spoilt with care.

I thank both for their tremendous efforts to grant me a pleasant stay. I will come back and then want to relax on the new terrace viewing the garden.
