I spent a night in Jakarta between flights and made the huge mistake of not searching around enough. So I checked into the Bloem Steen - it was cheap enough, and from the outside, seemed nice enough (and I was very tired).
The bed was dirty and the mattress was the worst I've had in probably 20 years. There was only one plug in the room - to which I connected the fan -, so I couldn't charge my cell phone or camera.
The service was close to non-existent. No one was around when I checked out, so I just kind of left my key at the reception...
I've travelled extensively and lived abroad several decades, and I've stayed at inexpensive hotels/hostels/homestays very often. The Bloem Steen was probably the worst I've seen.More
