A great hotel and base from which to explore Jogja and begin trips to the Prambanan and Borobudur temples. The service was great and the hotel very attractive. The rooms were very clean and modern but cosy with very comfortable beds and plate-sized shower heads in the bathroom. The nice pool and spa area is perfect for winding down after a humid day-trip and you can be pretty confident in the food they serve up. Breakfast is very nice. Our room did not come with pool view but with views of nearby buildings, but as we were there to use it as a base for exploring this was not a problem. However, we could see the Merapi volcano looming large from our window which was nice. I highly recommend this hotel, particularly if you'll be mixing up the types of accommodation you take during your trip to Indonesia. By the time I arrived in Jogja I was feeling pretty ill and this hotel provided some good respite from any hassles and stresses.

Through the ensuing decades, the property changed hands a number of times, until a Dutch caretaker turned it into Pensioner Hotel. The Phoenix name was deliberately chosen by the last proprietor who hoped that it would remain intact forever, believing in the ancient myth of The Phoenix, the sacred fire bird symbolizing regeneration throughout eternity.The Phoenix Hotel is elegantly situated in down town Yogyakarta, the cradle of Javanese civilization. The legendary Malioboro Street is just nearby, while the world herigate Borobudur and Prambanan temples are only an hour drive. Yogyakarta's cultural heritage and picturesque settings emit a distinctive charm that seldom fails its visitors.The 144 beautifully appointed rooms are reflecting the ambiance of bygone era wrapped in modern comfort facilities, enabling its occupant to celebrate a glorious past without losing the beauty of contemporary living. ... more less
