Tembi Rumah Budaya is a very beautiful place but today I took the batik workshop and it was a total fraud. The teacher was absolutely not interested in teaching us and a big part of the process was directly made by him because he obviously just wanted to finish fast. The price of 54.000 Rp per person just for what... More

Tembi Rumah offers a beautiful, budget-priced escape from the growing congestion of central Yogyakarta. Two nights here with full meal plan cost less than a night in similar quality hotels in town. The setting is sublime, the bungalows clean and quiet. It's approx. 15 min. to city centre, yet I found the hotel to be quick to arrange taxi transportation.... More

It's an excellent stay with good quality of information on historical background of each of the premise. It provides a great traditional Javanese rural environment with paddy fields. Highly recommended for a meeting or workshop.

Great place. Lovely Javanese architecture. The swimming pool after a long hot day in town is great! Meals were included in the price - but the choice was limited to only Indonesian food (something else than rice would have been nice for breakfast). So was the pick up at the airport. The main downside (beside the lack of choice for... More

The place is outside of Yogya, close to different villages. Very good when you want to see village life up close. It's still close to the Yogya (20 mins to train station, 10 mins to Kraton). 3 Indonesian meals & coffee/tea time are included in the price, including airport pick up both ways. They also do free Malioboro drop offs.... More

Property set-up wise: traditionally terrific, everything we needed for a convenience hotel room was there, but brace yourself: No TV. F&B selection was good and unique; they even have "Grilled Squirrel with Blackpepper Sauce" on the menu. My recommendation would be to try their delightful "Teh Poci" (traditional tea in a clay pot) for a delightful afternoon. Service: excellent staff.... More
