We stayed there for 14 Nights Bed and Breakfast, the Breakfast option thank god wasn't one of those continental type! you can choose from a Big Western Breakfast with real Beans and thick Buttered Toast, Coffee or Tea, you could have Bagels, Continental bread, and things called Sofi Muffins, all combinations which made our day.
The staff are really nice and even bought us a mobile phone chip with an indonesian phone number for only 1 Euro from the local merchants, the owners are a family couple with a daughter same name as the Guest House Sofi Residence they are nice people and funny
the place is safe and very clean and the rooms clean with en-suite hot Shower and yes a real flushing Toilet, the bed was very comfortable and the room had everything that you only get or find in a top starred Hotel, Free unlimited internet connection anywhere in the Guest House Cable T.V- didn't have all the chanels subscribed bt a good viewing choice, plus a DVD player and coffee making facilities.
A friend of mine recommended Sofiresidence and mentioned the great value good location for getting around and the homely atmosphere and for surer she was right, i will recommend it also . Thanks Guys
I got information about this Residence from Internet and we contacted with the owner for cost and some facilities there. Price " so so" but we loved this place because feels like at Home..
Their staff helpfull and the place quite clean. They have small coffe shop in the front the place, Free wifi inthe room, free laundry ( max 26 kg /month) but not free breakfast :-)
Easy to get food , they closed with Resto / cinema and also to get another place shooping mall.
The owner is nice person we can talk directly by phone / email to ask about cost or something for discussion.
So, we could say " Nice Residence and feels like at home " :-)
Because of that reason we stayed there for two times ( long stay )...
I am currently a long term guest in Sofi Residence.
Definitely is a perfect place to stay in Jakarta because of several reasons.
Quality price relationship is unbeatable.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable. You have cable TV, small fridge, hot water kettle, a good wifi (included in the price) and ensuite bathroom.
You have laundry service included, and rooms are cleaned daily.
At the same time you can use the communal kitchen and the iron.
In his coffee shop you can have drinks, coffee, tee, and some meals or snacks, and talk with some of the other guests.
Sofi Residence is sited in a good place in Jakarta. The area is full of services and you are close to the centre so you can reach whatever place in the city in a reasonable time.
Best of Sofi, is always extremely clean.
And of course, his owner; James, and the rest of staff, are going to help you a lot with all you need.
I am probably now the longest tenant at Sofi Residence!"_".
First stay in..ehmm, let see, 2009 - I think and so far, I always enjoy every minutes I spent at Sofi Residence, especially since the location is pretty closed to where I work and it so closed to every shopping, dining and entertainment facilities that I often visit (since it's right at the heart of Jakarta). So, I find it very convenient.
My room is always cleaned and I enjoy the wi-fi and laundry services offered by Sofi Residence. The owner, James and Ivone are probably one of the most loveliest and nicest couples I have ever met, especially since they are so friendly and helpful.
I enjoy the quietness of Sofi residence and the feeling of security I have whenever I come back after work. So, it's truly like my second home.
Sofi is a residence on the centre of Jakarta not very big but full serviced
clean and safe.
Laundry, internet wi fi and climatization in every room are included.
The staff works properly because the owner personally check the business
to be sure everything for every guest is ok h24!
I was in Sofi 3 monts, I knew new friends and i felt as in a big family not in a cold standard hotel
