Introduction

Hotel des Indes, Jakarta, 1930 





Nico E. Burhoven Jaspers (from the AIA) designed the new Hotel des Indes in Batavia, which opened on 18 May 1930. The Hotel des Indes, situated at Molenvliet West (Jl. Gajah Mada), was considered as one of the best hotels.
The Hotel des Indes meant for Batavia what the Raffles Hotel meant – and still means – for Singapore. But the fates of these buildings differed. The Hotel des Indes fell into disrepair after 1960 and was demolished in 1971 to make way for a department store.
