I stayed for one night in Permata Eksekutif, a budget residential complex in Kebon Jeruk that consists of two towers of 16 floors. It was built in 2000 by PT. Universal Dwikarya.
Below is my mini-review of the property:
Permata Eksekutif is located in Kebon Jeruk, West Jakarta, in the subdistrict of Kelapa Dua. This is a local, affordable area with mostly low-rise buildings and a low-to-middle-class population. It occupies a rather strategic location, though, as it is within a reasonable distance to the business district of Central Jakarta. Senayan is just 7 kilometers away, but beware of traffic jams in this area (small roads).
TransJakarta (2 minutes by foot)
Jakarta Outer Ring Road (4 kilometers away), Jakarta Inner Ring Road (6 kilometers away)
Bellezza Shopping Arcade (3 kilometers): A weird mall that features some random boutiques and offices. Not large enough for real shopping, but you can find decent restaurants, a karaoke, a fitness center, and a supermarket.
ITC Permata Hijau, just across the street from Bellezza, is a middle-class mall that has cheap unbranded shops and a food court.
For better options, you should go to Senayan City, Plaza Senayan, or Gandaria City, about 20 minutes away.
There is a Superindo supermarket in the basement of Permata Eksekutif.
For a greater choice of imported and quality products, you can also visit FoodHall in Bellezza Mall or Carrefour in ITC Permata Hijau.
Food and nightlife:
There are some cheap warungs walking distance, but you will need a 5-10 minute car ride to find proper local restaurants (and some fast foods). For nightlife, you will have to go to Senopati or Senayan.

About the construction:
PT. Universal Dwikarya: This is not a famous developer and it is not transparent. You should be careful when buying from them.
