Getting to Pesona
A WORD TO THE WISE . . .
If this is your first trip to Indonesia's sprawling Capital,
we strongly recommend that you utilise
Pesona's Airport Pick-Up Service.
JAKARTA TAXI DRIVERS ARE NOTORIOUS FOR GETTING LOST
WHEN DEALING WITH PASSENGERS WHO DO NOT KNOW THE CITY.
They DO NOT consider it their responsibility to be familiar with the City,
and are typically unwilling or unable to use the GPS devices in their cars.
Jakarta Taxi Drivers view themselves as "drivers only"
and expect passengers to provide directions to their destinations.
It is not uncommon for a Pesona guest to spend up to 3 hours
making her/his way from Soekarno Hatta Airport to the Guesthouse
(a commute which should take 45 to 60 minutes).
On occasion, guests have even been
dropped at the side of the road with their luggage,
having never reached Pesona.
Airport Pick-Up by Pesona Guest House
AIRPORT PICK-UP MAY BE ARRANGED THROUGH PESONA
(usually the preferred option of first-time visitors).
Airport Transfer Charge : Rp 350,000 (approx €21 / USD $25)
(from the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport
to Pesona Guest House).
Taxi or Airport Limousine
If you are adamant that you would like to get to Pesona by taxi,
it is advisable to use BLUE BIRD TAXI or SILVER BIRD LIMOUSINE (both operated by Blue Bird Goup), and insist on a "metered car."
The Bluebird Dispatcher will ask for your "destination area" and inform you of the applicable "Airport Tariff amount" (which should be added to the final meter amount upon arrival at Pesona Guest House).
Tell the Dispatcher
Your DESTINATION AREA is :
Cipete Raya (a street) in
Cilandak Barat (a district)
Your ADDRESS is :
Jalan MPR III Dalam, Nomor 3,
Your DESIRE ROUTE is :
Tol Lingkar Luar (Outer Ring Toll Road) to
Exit Cipete (Cipete Exit).
Any difficulties will likely occur after you exit the Toll Road at Cipete
(just a few blocks away from Pesona Guest House).
If your Driver has any problems, have him call the
Pesona Landline : 021-751-2837
We will speak with him directly.
BEST OF LUCK!
