The Istana Batik Ratna Hotel has an old charm of traditional Javanese architecture. There are nice wooden carvings in the hotel lobby and atrium. The food is served in atrium restaurant, partly open-air, next to pool. Breakfast is mostly Indonesian style (good), but you may have also omelettes and toasts done. Rooms are standard-size. There was TV in the room,... More

The main attraction to this place was the price; in reality it was even better value than we thought. The rooms are basic, but the communal areas are quite charming. The location is excellent; round the corner from the incredible shopping area of Malioboro, and next to the 'gang' where you can find decent restaurants and tour agencies. Opposite the... More

When you want to view yogyakarta and travel by train, the location is absolutely perfect with the train staion only 50 meters away. The hotel itself is very beautiful, and definitly takes you away from the stressed environment of the city. The rooms are about 24m2, so large enough in my opinion. Both the beds and the shower were very... More

I originally booked this hotel purely on location. It's directly opposite the train station and is only a 2 minute walk to the hustle and bustle that is Malioboro. Having stayed here for one night it is so much more than just it's location. The staff were some of the most professional i've found in all of Indonesia, the rooms... More

There are advantages for staying in this hotel. It is walking distance to Malioboro (10 minutes), Beringharjo Market (20 minutes), the train station (across the road, 5 minutes) and money changers (across the road). However, the accommodation rooms, they are not sound proofed. The water pressure for shower is too low.

Istana Batik is just beside Malioboro Street. You can take the bus to Prambanan Temple in a 3 minutes walk, and get to the Kraton in a 10 minutes walk. Quiet, clean, cheap... What else can you ask for? Well, there's more: an amazing pool. And also an amazing reception. Breakfast is good, and there are plenty places to eat... More

First the pros. Reasonably well located right opposite the station at the top of Malioboro. Lovely pool. Nice public areas to meet up with other travellers gives this a hostel feel. Ok food. Staff very friendly. Now the cons. Our room was quite dark. A bulb was out but in spite of asking it never got replaced. Bathrooms are well... More

I stayed here over the holiday period and really wanted to give a better review. The location is great, the staff are attentive and the food and decor are spot on. The pool is a great place to cool off. My only gripe was being woken up at 6 in the morning each day by a really noisy family using... More
