The Cakra Homestay of Solo (Surakarta) would have been good, but the young manager/owner tried to over charge me in three different ways, including charging me for the date of checkout. He also said I was there a day longer, but when I asked to see the records, it was clear that I had never been checked in. The price... More

We loved this place. It was very inviting and atmospheric with a pool area, a relaxing tower, music room, lounge area. Rooms were basic but the ambiance of the place made up for it. Guy who worked there, young and friendly went out of his way to help us. Booking onward travel, telling us when the dances were on, and... More

A sanctuary in busy Solo. Big grounds with lots of trees and places to sit and relax. Staff were very helpful. Pool was spotless and cool, they even brought out floating toys for our kids who had a ball. Bathrooms had standard mandi which for us was fine. I would definitely stay here on my next trip to Solo.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a twin room on my own. Only one plug for the whole room including powering the wall fan. The architecture and displays were cool but felt quite out of place, it felt like staying in an Indonesian museum. Breakfast was just a couple of slices of papaya and a toast jam sandwich. Toilets weren't... More

This is a huge but very atmospheric place. Solo is a very traditional city and so is Cakra Home. The staff is always around and ready to help. They have an awesome gamelan room with playing sessions at every Tuesday and Thursday at the moment. The huge pool was very clean when I stayed here and I enjoyed swimming in... More

My partner and I enjoyed staying here for 2 nights. It was an unexpected and surprisingly pleasant discovery. We stayed at the "VIP" room furnished with impressive antiques connected to royalty. The maintenance of place could be better eg the shower tends to dribble, the basin tap was loose but works, but we really appreciated the friendly and personal service,... More

The hotel is nice, except the swimming pool that was very dirty - we didn't dare go in it! The staff is efficient to tell you what to do in Solo, which is nice, but not really for the rest: we had a room that wouldn't lock and we had to put energy to persuade them that we wanted to... More

The place itself is amazing, as other reviews have mentioned, the communal areas were amazing, almost like you were in a museum on Javanese culture, with a room with all the gamelan instruments. The verandas with all the rooms off them were gorgeous and there is a tower, up 3 flights of stairs which has tables and chairs and is... More

Being the only local who stayed at Cakra Homestay, I must claim that this place is a gem in Solo. Despite of the old room, the location and the pool are perfect. But what stands out from everything else is the staff, they were really there to help you.....24 hours! Thanks to Wahyu for all the info and Ferdi +... More

The staff is very nice, and the common places are just amazing...the pool, the terraces, etc. Really beautiful, we could stay all afternoon in the swimming pool. However the room were really, really basic, and the bathroom was disgusting: no faucet, the water from the shower and from washing your teeth went into the same whole, in the floor. The... More
