Historic building buffs: this place is for you! The upper class traditional Javanese residential compound is an architecture gem. The very basic rooms are standard for the price. What you pay for is the ambience. Spend your waking time outside the room. Cool down in the small pool looking over the decked out pendopo. Linger in the living area imbibing... More

The setting and interiors of the place are amazing - a traditional Javanese compound, full of sculptures and "oldie" charm, like from romantic movies on colonial past. Add atmospheric walkways in from of the rooms, a charming tower in the middle of the compound and a well-kept tropical garden all around and you feel being in a fairy tale. They... More

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
