Shame about 'breakfast' but you can order fried eggs. We had big room downstairs full of antiques - only plug point under sideboard but who cares, loved it and the staff were so helpful and pleasant 9even the taxi driver who raced cars - sheesh)

Cakra Homestay is far from any expectations, especially if you are looking for an homestay and you find yourself in a smaller 'Kraton' with a beautiful garden, a stunning swimming pool and an attentive staff always at your service. The family who runs this charming place has always had a passion for art, like the interesting house collection of chinese... More

This Homestay has really friendly owner and a lovely swimming pool! The room was big and clean & simple. It is really a refreshment to enter this Homestay, compared to the surroundings of Solo city which is dreary!! It is a good place to chill and feel safe... Lots to see in all the buildings & there is even a... More

We stayed in the cheapest rooms they had (less than $20 usd/night), and they were fine. Where this hotel shines is it's property. Old buildings oozing javanese decor and antique charm, the common areas are some of the best you will find on all of Java. How about a javanese music room, where you can see players practicing for free?... More

Stayed here for 10 days. Beautiful communal sitting areas and wonderful, relaxed atmosphere. The staff are super helpful and kind and really look after their guests well. They have traditional Javanese music practice - gamelan - three times a week on their own beautiful set of instruments. You can also organise lessons on the instruments. Bedrooms are quite large.

Stayed here for a few days and the exterior of the place is nice and peaceful however the rooms need more attention. The few things I can recommend is perhaps include a sink and tap somewhere so guest could wash hands, and include more shower heads, and the bathroom does not have a flash, tried using the bucket but was...

Hotel is right in the centre. It is great place to spend some time and have a rest. Rooms are clean and have windows located to the garden or to the courtyard. There are a lot of historical things which are exhibited every where so you can feel like you are staying in a museum. There is a tower in... More

Cakra homestay is a beautiful homestay in solo. The staff is very helpfull and we booked 2 nice tours there. Riding bicycle in the surroudings was great and the tour to the temples too. The swimmingpool is very nice also. But the rooms are very poor. There are no hotwater showers or even a sink. The toilet you have to... More

The property is beautiful, there's a pool (I never used it because it didn't look that clean), ornate halls, and a gamelan room where musicians sometimes practice, which is an added perk. There is free tea and coffee all the time, but the breakfast is not much. There is a nice tower in the middle of the property from which... More

This homestay is located in a very Central part of Solo City (Surakarta). Certainly within walking distance--or very most a short becak ride to anywhere in the City. However, this is a GREAT place to learn Javanese Culture--especially gamelan music. You can "rent" the gamelan for a private lesson (a private teacher from Institut Seni costs about Rp 100,000 for...
