It is the first time that I leave an hotel with the feeling of leaving friends... We stayed 6 nights at the nDalem Gamelan Hotel and it was one of the highlight of our Indonesian trip. The structure is really old and beautiful and stragically located in the Kraton, far from the chaos of Maliorobo street. The staff is very,... More

This hotel is in an interesting and relaxing location close to the Kraton. It is quirky and individual, the service is excellent and the breakfast was fantastic. You can walk to the main areas of interesting or take a motorbike taxi.

I love coming back to Yogya and call home to this beautiful house in the Kraton Palace area. Pak and Ibu again were so nice and it was a pleasant stay. Thank you so much. It is close to my favourite shop Tjokrosuharto which I bought a silver jewellery case with traditional Javanese motifs hard to find nowadays. I have... More

A wonderful old Javanese house inside the Kraton walls. The staff were welcoming and friendly. So glad I chose to stay there instead of a big hotel. Lovely antique furniture and beautiful colour scheme in the decoration. Stayed only two nights. Hope to stay longer one day. Chosen because of the name and the photos because of an interest in...

This a heritage building with little things that separate it from a hotel.The Sultans family would use it many years ago. Maria is an unbelievable host, made you feel at home. Extended our stay by one day. Very accomodating. And the breakfast was very good.

This is an absolute treat in a great area of Jogja. Walking distance to most things or a $2 becak ride if you need. The staff are wonderful and you feel like you are staying in a beautiful Javanese home rather than a hotel. I felt sorry for anyone staying in a bland international hotel as they would miss experiencing... More

At first i planned to stay there for 3 days only, but in the end, i extend it for another day. I really really love this place. You can't say this place is a big hotel because they only have 4 rooms, every room decorated differently with antiques furniture along with modern bathroom equipped with hot and cold shower. This...

This is a restored old house with antique furniture and authentic Javanese style. The room was comfortable and clean but don't expect an ultramodern bathroom (although it was clean, with hot shower and everything functioned well). Adding mosquito screens at the bathroom window would be a great improvement. The staff was very nice and helpful. We especially appreciated the lovely... More

Well located in Kraton not far from Malioboro we have spent 6 good days. The breakfast was good and the staff always ask you with a charming smile "at what time your breakfast tomorrow do you want to try something new" It was like if we were with friends in a home stay.

I stayed here again after 1 year. Pak and Ibu reserved me the room which I painted a picture of. I brought to them my framed picture. This is a beautiful, traditional javanese decorated place inspired by the Kraton Palace. The room is comfortable as usual. I enjoyed my breakfast of traditional javanese food and tea everyday. It's a pleasure... More
