Jakarta, September 18th 2014 - Continuing to expand the successful favehotel brand in the Indonesian capital, Archipelago International will be opening the latest favehotel property in Central Jakarta soon in this year.

Home to over 10 million people, Jakarta is a huge megalopolis and one of the world's largest cities. It is a city of contrasts; the traditional and the modern, the sacred and the worldly. Its population comprises of all ethnic groups in the Indonesian archipelago, living under the national motto: Bhineka Tunggal Ika, meaning “Unity in Diversity”.

Whether it be business or leisure, Jakarta's central Zainul Arifin area offers access to the North and Central business districts, Chinatown and is within close proximity to the government offices around the Presidential Palace. Soekarno Hatta International Airport is just 35 to 45 minutes away by car.

With this convenient location, favehotel Zainul Arifin is a prime choice for long and short term leisure travelers, businessmen and families. The 84 super clean and contemporary budget hotel rooms feature top of the line beds with a plush mattress, down pillows, a cozy duvet and crisp 250 thread-count sheets – together with smart touches that contribute to a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Free high speed WiFi throughout the hotel keeps guests connected while the flat LED TVs in the rooms offer great entertainment options. The hotel's eclectic café-shop serves a simple but hearty breakfast and many light and healthy choices throughout the day. Elsewhere in the hotel, there is also a selection of top-class meeting facilities for business travelers.

With a tagline of “Fun, Fresh and Friendly”, favehotel Zainul Arifin is committed to ensuring guests a comfortable stay. The friendly and attentive staff will be on hand to assist guests throughout their stay, and they will even offer assistance with guests' excursions by sharing their knowledge and experience of the surrounding area and its sights, including the nearby National Museum and National Monument.

“Jakarta is such a diverse capital city, with locals and tourists from across the world exploring its culture, doing business in the financial district and enjoying the plethora of dining, shopping and entertainment options. favehotel Zainul Arifin caters to these different types of travelers, with its great central location, friendly staff and premium facilities. We are very excited to be adding this new favehotel to Archipelago International's ever-growing portfolio in the capital”. Said Norbert Vas, Archipelago International's VP Sales & Marketing.
