“Enjoyed Christmas here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2010

Nice place on a great street just outside the centre of Yogya. Lots of restaurants and cafes close by. Rooms are quite basic - we had once by the pool which was nice but a little noisy in the afternoon. The staff are helpful and organised tours for us to the temples etc which was handy.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2009

We had a good stay and the hotel provides a little oasis- very needed in the heat of the day.

The staff is helpful and the location is perfect: not too noisy besides mosque calls. The rooms are spartiates in the low ranged price but ok beds and hot showers! Fans is enough to get a good sleep. Rooms a little smelly but clean.

Breakfast is good and buffet style but basic like most places we have been. Lots of good little resto around.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2009

We arrived in Yogya with no accommodation booked. After trying the phone number listed in Lonely Planet for Delta Homestay (sister organisation), which is no longer in service, and a night in a very seedy hotel near the station at Yogya, we managed to get the right phone number from the Duta Garden website. We booked a room with air conditioning, twin beds and private bathroom at 200,000 rupiahs per night including breakfast.

The booking was handled very professionally and they told us the room would be held until 1pm. Our room on the ground floor at the front was very big with tall ceilings, nice old tiles on the floor, big windows and cane lounge chairs and a coffee table inside. No TV or fridge but satellite TV is available on a large flat screen in the living room and we were able to leave some items in one of their fridges. There is free internet on a computer next to the lobby. Decor is an eclectic mix of carved "old Java/Bali" style artifacts, attractive modern timber furniture and older "lived in" furnishings. Very comfortable.

The guest rooms are organised around two courtyards, one of which has an attractive pool area. Breakfast is simple (fruit, toast eggs and coffee - or noodles and rice) in a pleasant outdoor dining area near the pool.

Every evening around 4-5pm staff brought around a cup of tea and a cake for every guest. Staff were friendly and helpful not pushy, with a somewhat professional air as though they have been trained in customer service.

Prawirotaman Road is a nice, relatively quiet area - a fair distance from the main Malioboro area (taxi or bejak 15,000 - 25,000 rp) - but with a range of good craft shops, ATMs, car hire, travel agents and restaurants within 5minutes walking distance. Much less hassling by touts than the Malioboro area.
