I stayed here for two nights after earlier staying at The Westerner, which was a little too basic for my needs. So perhaps that has coloured my judgement somewhat, but Istana Griya was very comfortable, a nice bed, good aircon, decent bathroom although only cold water and decent-ish internet access. The hallway is very dark during the day as others... More

I stayed here for two nights. The price was cheap, but on my third day I found a much better place for less money. The room here was ok if you just need to crash for the night, but my room was dingy, the fan was tiny (the smallest fans in Asia?), and my room was full of mosquitoes...I lit... More

Room is a bit dark because window is facing inside, but they are honest about it and the price is reasonable. Very helpful and honest.

Staff can give good information and help you with tours bicycles and transport. Basic rooms but have all you need, good bed and a fairly decent but tiny bathroom.

Very friendly owners. Nice atmosphere, good value. Not all rooms have a window, fine if you arrive late and leave early, but ask to see a room if you mind. They offer good tour and transport options.

We spent four nights at this hotel and it was fine, if uninspiring. We had one of the few air-conditioned rooms which was, fortunately, tucked away in the back away from the main corridors. The room was okay although the bathroom was a bit rough, and there was no hot water. The breakfast was the same every day - and... More

Rooms are a little on the small side without outside light, some are with fan, some with AC, but since there is space to sit outside this is not so much an issue. The place could be improved with wifi connection (they have an ancient computer with internet connection). Location is not so bad. Walking around I saw an Istana... More

Stayed at the Istana Griya as it is listed in a well-known guidebook. It is adequate but it is not the only place to stay in the area and it might be worth looking around to see how the other local guesthouses compete. There were no windows in my roomalthough that doesn't mean to say that other rooms aren't available.The... More

This small guesthouse is centrally located close to the main sights and activities in Solo. It is down a small alley and is quiet. The bedrooms are a good size with attached bathrooms with fan only or A/C options. The rooms do not have outside windows, windows onto the hall, but do not feel claustrophobic. Indonesian breakfast is included in... More
