Gay Friendly Hotels Jakarta

Guide to Gay Friendly Hotels in Jakarta Indonesia (2023 Updated)

Generally speaking, well known hotels &  resorts in the Jakarta are welcoming towards all LGBTQ couples and most of the 4 & 5* gay friendly hotels Jakarta.
Indonesia does have a reputation as being a relatively moderate and tolerant Muslim nation, which does have some application to LGBT people. There are some LGBT people in the media, and the national government has allowed a discreet LGBT community to exist, who sometimes organises public events.
Jakarta, Indonesia’s massive capital, sits on the northwest coast of the island of Java. A historic mix of cultures – Javanese, Malay, Chinese, Arab, Indian and European – has influenced its architecture, language and cuisine. The old town, Kota Tua, is home to Dutch colonial buildings, Glodok (Jakarta’s Chinatown) and the old port of Sunda Kelapa, where traditional wooden schooners dock.

 top attractions to visit in Jakarta are:

Jakarta has improved a lot over the years and is not as bad as its reputation. Still, it is a big city with relatively few real attractions. … If they keep going the way they’re going Jakarta might actually be properly worth visiting before too long!Aug 22, 2017

1. Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta 5* – Gay Friendly Hotels Jakarta


Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta
Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta

Centrally located in Jakarta, Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta offers convenience to reach important areas of the city. It’s a 10-minute drive to SCBD area and a 15-minute drive to Grand Indonesia Shopping Mall. Kuningan Business District is a 10-minute drive from the property, while Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is a 1-hour drive from Four Season Hotel Jakarta.

Offering views of the city, the rooms at Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta are equipped with air conditioning, a flat-screen TV and a coffee machine. It features a separate seating area, a spacious walk-in closet and a private bathroom with a bath and hot/cold shower.

There are five on-site dining outlets to choose from. Guests can have breakfast at Palm Court Restaurant, enjoy treats at La Patisserie or grab a quick bite at Dolcetto Cafe. Lunch, dinner and cocktails are available at Alto Restaurant & Bar. Drinks can also be enjoyed at Nautilus Bar.Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta is an all-suites hotel in prestigious Capital Place, with easy access to Jakarta’s business and commercial area. With an array of food and beverage concepts, luxurious spa complex with resort-style outdoor pool, state-of-the-art meeting and event spaces and with signature Four Seasons service with warm Indonesian hospitality, its home away from home.

The Four Seasons hotel on Jl Gatot Subroto in Jakarta’s Kuningan district is a high class location with beautiful rooms all tastefully designed. The hotel is new, being just 3 years old so is in immaculate condition.

The location is pretty central, in the western end of Kuningan and is easily accessible given Gatot Subroto is such a major thoroughfare. The hotel is the main part of the Capital Place development but in reality the location’s importance is based on the ease of getting to places by taxi.

The exterior of the hotel is stunning with the entrance area including large sculptures and water features. It is strikingly attractive.

The whole place looks great. The entrance is nice and the grand staircase is impressive. The use of classic cars is great especially for fans of marquee brands from decades past. The library is stunning with the artistry of the ornamentation standing out even in this beautiful hotel. A confectionary shop is presumably there more to look gorgeous than to sell anything.

The room is spectacular. Marble flooring is pleasant even if not of the highest quality source of that stone. The greens around the room are beautiful and set well with its ornate nature. Even though this place is just a couple of years old it achieves the feel of being an historic and classic place to stay.

Sleeping is amazing with such a luxurious bed in comfortable surroundings. The curtains are blackout good and the remote controlling of one set is a nice touch.

The room came with a shower which had just a little splash and only a slightly odd design for door opening but otherwise worked fine. A bath is also available. The sink is classy with plenty of accessories.

Plentiful storage makes it convenient. The living room area is also enjoyable with a nice chaise lounge and a good desk. There are plug sockets around including multi region ones. The television is excellent just a shame the programming available is not especially interesting.

There are two restaurants in the hotel. The rooftop one seems like a good idea but is thoroughly uninspiring with just a range of boring Italian options and no vegetarian selections. The ground floor restaurant has a few more choices with different international food but is still not quite up to the standard of the accommodation.

Breakfast is fabulous. The restaurant looks great and has a luxury feel about it. The outside areas are designed for various great selfie angles because it all looks so good.

The buffet is a good size and has many more options than it seems due to the terrific use of space. Everything is delicious. Granola is as tasty as anywhere. The cooked food options are good with Indonesian and western available. A range of other delicious options are a nice bonus including hummus. If this hotel was just a breakfast restaurant it would come highly recommended.

The check in and out processes were simple if not particularly quick. Service was lovely though including a little birthday cake offering.

Price for such quality is highly reasonable. This is an exceptional hotel and a fabulous place to stay. An experience in itself and a touch of genuine luxury.

2. Ascott Sudirman Jakarta 5* – LGBT Friendly Hotels Jakarta

Ascott Sudirman Jakarta
Ascott Sudirman Jakarta

Centrally located, Ascott Sudirman Jakarta features fully-furnished apartments with free WiFi throughout. The property offers a swimming pool and a children’s playground. Free public parking is available.

Stylishly designed, each unit comes with a well-equipped kitchen and home entertainment system. All apartments have a seating area, while some also have a dining area. A washing machine and ironing facilities are provided. The en suite bathroom includes separate bath and shower.

Guests can enjoy breakfast at the Breakfast Lounge. Alternatively, plenty of dining options are located within walking distance in the nearby shopping malls.

Ideally located in Jakarta’s Central Business District, Ascott Sudirman Jakarta is just a stone’s throw away from the busiest Sudirman area. The serviced residence is part of Ciputra World 2, an integrated development that also comprises a Grade A office tower and retail amenities. With its ideal location, the luxurious residence is close to an array of business and entertainment attractions.
Located within Ciputra World 2 which is so near to Lotte Shopping Avenue but yet so far. No pedestrian path to walk over to the mall. However if take a taxi, it’s too near.

 The view was good although the weather was not so good that time. The interior was average but the deco items are quite nice.

The toilet comes with separate WC and shower/tub. The problem with it is that it has sliding doors without any lock from inside. If you have a kid, embarrassingly he might come and slide it open while you are inside.

The facilities are good although the swimming pool is too small. The only not so memorable experience here was the breakfast. The spread was little and the food were not so overwhelming. We thought we could have some good croissant with coffee but both just an upset.

Ascott Sudirman is located close to Sudirman, Kuningan, and SCBD. It’s also only 5 – 10 minutes walk to Lotte Shopping Avenue Kuningan.

The sky pool is one of the main thing about this apartment. Even Though it’s small, the view is amazing, overlooking the Jakarta’s skyscrapers (great for Instagram 😉 ). Next to the pool, they have a complete gym and sauna. They also have a “sanctuary” with 3 massage chairs.

Above the lobby, they have a huge library area with amazing outside space and 3 meeting areas.

We stayed at the studio premier. But even we’re staying at Studio Premier for 1 night only, Ascott didn’t eliminate the kitchen supplies. There are rice cooker, induction cooker with hob, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, and cutleries and plate set for 4 person.

Breakfast was pretty good with egg station and waffle/pancake station located outside.

To be honest, I was captivated by their interior photos, even though I only wanted to stay for one night. When I entered the room, I found everything to be perfect, as I expected: a large bed, private kitchen, a comfortable work space, and a spacious bathroom (plus a bathtub!). Because of their strategic location, I was able to enjoy a very magical view of Jakarta from where I was staying – and it looked even more beautiful at dusk and at night. Absolutely satisfying and surely value for money.

With its convenient location, the hotel offers easy access to the city’s must-see destinations.
 It’s definitely an art hotel, you can see the art and design in the picture. Its totally 90% same with the pic you see in the net.
Its strategic hotel, you can walk to the MRT station for only around 5-7 min, across the hotel you can located sarinah mall, where you can find almost everything. So, no need to worried about the food or groceries.

Aside from sarinah mall, you can war for 5 min, and you will find street food at jalan sabang. Its Jakarta authentic, made me remembering my childhood eating satay and nasi goreng gila in this street with my family.In the morning, you can walk for 3 min, and you can take a morning stroll at Jl. Thamrin where there will be “Car Free Day” until 11. In CFD, you can tried all the street food and others unique things.

Location wise for Thamrin area with the price is a value catch. There’s Sarinah mall opposite the hotel, eating places area all around the hotel. It’s about 1km walking distance to Plaza Indonesia area, or else you can always get a cab. It’s about 40 minutes plus to the airport, the hotel itself for the price i paid was satisfying.

Could be quite confusing for taxis or Uber drivers as the there are several roads leading to the hotel. But the best way in is via Jln. Thamrin into Jln. Sunda. Right next to Sarinah Mall.

There’s no swimming pool but the hotel makes up for it with an awesome rooftop bar which has a splendid view of the city in the evening.

Great staff attitude and personality.

Stable WiFI connection throughout the hotel and there wasn’t any data lag which is really great for someone who prefers to stay connected.

Small and quirky but enough for 2 persons to occupy. Basic toilet amenities but better than other similar rated hotels in Jakarta.


Located right in the middle of town center. Good WIFI coverage all around the hotel ground. Complimentary / Welcome juice-drink upon check-in and at anytime you’re at the Lobby. Short-walk to Plaza Indonesia & Grand Indonesia shopping malls, as well as to Sarinah shopping center right opposite the hotel. Nearby Jalan Sabang for Nasi Padang, hawker stalls – Fried Rice, Satay, etc. during night time.

Room: Each rooms and corridors is having different artwork and wall painting. Some designed by local famous artists. Brand new, clean, compact, and modern artsy room. Bathroom is clean too. Bottled waters provided everyday.

Coffee-house, Live-Band & Rooftop Bar: One of the simplest and best Coffee-house + Bar with Live-band performance at night time, next to the Lobby. Great music and the bartenders will start dancing & singing too!!! The rooftop-bar; hang-out spot was very cool as well!

Overall, it’s a perfect stay-cation, you’ll love it. We’ll come back someday. We will also try the other branch; Artotel Wahid Hasyim located just nearby, totally different interior concept there.

We choose to stay at this hotel because the location is very strategic. Near from tanah abang complex, MRT and TransJakarta station, near from Bundaran HI, plaza Indonesia, Monas and also near to Sarinah mall, Room condition was good, nice lobby with coffee shop, clean bathroom, nice bed, fast wifi connection, and hotel staff very kind and nice.

The hotel is very close to Thamrin Road where Sunday car free day is held. The Thamrin Road is road

Service: 5/5
Fantastic service, warm and welcoming every time. The staff accommodated our request to combine two deluxe rooms into one and was very understanding about it. We would have been happy even if it were a twin bed but the reception upgraded us to a suite.

Breakfast buffet: 4.5/5
Great spread and pretty delicious food. There were quite a lot of pastries and a good variety of local food. There was even an ice cream counter!

Location: 4.5/5
The whole reason I chose Wyndham was because of its walking distance to the Kota Kasablanka mall. It was very near, however I might hesitate to walk back by myself if it’s late. The jam along the Main road however was terrible especially at peak hour.Hotel location was just perfect for me as it was located just 10 minutes to Kota Kasablanka mall by walk. Traffic jams are horrible in Jakarta, so if you can avoid taking a cab you should not miss that chance.

My room on 11th floor facing a residential quarter and Dutch cemetery was nice, well equipped and quiet. I had a great sleep. The daily rate of 1400000 IDR (approx. 84 EUR) was reasonable. WiFi was a bit weak in my room, but cable internet they provided worked much better.

Breakfast was good. They provide a nice selection of various cuisines, so you have a choice of European, Indonesian, Indian and Japanese dishes. Service is a bit slow, so you better take what you need by yourself rather than expect that to be served.

They have an open swimming pool and a small gym. Swimming pool is normally empty but gym is quite crowded, so I decided to skip it.

Overall I am satisfied with that hotel, and will choose it again on my next visit to Jakarta
