Review: Staycation at Best Western Premier The Hive, East Jakarta

Last month, I got the bad news about one of my friends getting terribly ill in Bogor. He was one of my ex-colleague from the first airlines where I worked professionally. For that reason, my former colleagues and I arranged a surprise visit to his place on the 12th of this month.

The universe conspired as I got the invitation from Best Western Premier The Hive in East Jakarta to have a staycation the day before I got scheduled to go to Bogor. It was actually a perfect time, since I’m personally more familiar to get to Bogor from Jakarta instead of going there directly from Bandung.

So in this post, I’m gonna share with you the review of my staycation there. If some of you are currently planning to stop by Jakarta for a visit, you might as well want to take Best Western Premier The Hive for consideration to stay.

Woodpecker Lodge Kuching, Sarawak: Where to Stay Comfortably on Budget in The Cat Town (The Review)

It wasn’t because I’ve claimed myself a cat lady when I decided to stay in Kuching for the longest period compared to the other cities I’ve visited during my Borneo trip.

Well, maybe it’s one of the reasons. However, I already planned to go to stay overnight at Bako National Park on my last day in the city. I didn’t really want to have a tight schedule during my trip this time, so I decided to book the accommodation in Kuching for 4 nights.

At first, I really wanted to have a nice and rather ‘fancy’ accommodations for the whole stay. You know, with elevator and everything. However, when I calculated the whole budget for 4 nights, the ‘fancy’ one would exceed my budget.

My other consideration is that I had to leave my big bag there for one night after I checked out, as I had to go to Bako. Before I made a booking, I dropped an email to some accommodation to confirm whether there’s any additional charge for luggage storage service.

Long story short, I ended up booking a room at Woodpecker Lodge in Kuching.
