“Nice hotel in a nice spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

I was in this hotel with a friend. The hotel was quite nice. I think that the rooms could have some improvement or at least some painjob and new furnishing. Anyway, the hotel has a very good pool and garden, which are a nice place to chill out. I can say that we enjoied our stay in this hotel.

Location was great. Hotel  very clean. Probably the most central hotel in Jogja. Close to all of the action and reception was very keen to help. Only stayed for 3 nights but would highly recommend.

I looked for a reasonably priced hotel near the train station and this one filled the bill perfectly. (It is a short walk from the station.) Very much a typical Indonesian hotel with very helpful staff. Our room was basic, equipped with a wet room instead of a shower and bath tub but it was all that we needed. Hotel is located near the top of Marlioboro street which is the tourist shopping centre. Breakfast was very nice and I found coffee and tea available from 6:00 AM. Small pleasant swimming pool. Staff learned it was my birthday and delivered a birthday cake to our room - now where else is that going to happen? Helpfully arranged tours to Borobudur and Prambanam.
It wasn't five star, we weren't paying for five star, but it was typically gracious Indonesian hospitality. Would stay there again.

There are plenty of hotels in Yogjakarta, but they tend to not be too cheap. We checked around for a while in the city, and found this one to be the best deal. The rooms are basic but nice, there is a nice swimmingpool and a good indonesia breakfast buffet. The staff is friendly and helpfull.

A stones throw away Yogyakartas main station this small one level hotel was perfectly adequate for a few days sightseeing around Yogya. We found it very quiet and clean with rooms cleaned on a daily basis with towels and linen changed everyday. The pool was small and in the center of the hotel but nice and cool for a relaxing dip after a long humid day. We only had breakfast once which was ok, not a great selection but more than enough to get you started for the day. Overall great value for money, but if you want something more comfortable you'll have to splash out some.more money! Would use it again if we ever came back. The photos on the web are exactly what it looks like
