We booked the hotel via agoda when they were still with the Dafam group. Then we found out that Dafam withdraw from the reviewer here. So, I booked another hotel in Jalan Magelang, Kangen Boutique Hotel, to better prepared me in case the hotel was really as bad as what have been reviewed. And so, we arrived at the hotel around 8pm local time. We were greeted with a welcome drink during our check-in process which I dont expect from a small hotel. That is a good effort they try to make. Upon checking in to the room, it was just as what you saw in the management piccies. We have mini bar, the bed is alright but was only 1 pillow per bed, so, we request extra pillows. The only set back was I think our room is a smoking room because the smell is pretty strong for my nose since I am very sensitive to smell. But we were too lazy to make noise and besides, most days we will be out. So, I couldnt bother much. As long as the bed is ok for my body to rest, then Im ok with it. I like the breakfast. Some stuffs that is worth trying are nasi kuning, jamu asem kencur + beras blablabla (cant remember), sarang gesit kueh, bakso, mie goreng jawa, gudeg, bubur ayam and many more lah. Those were the ones I can remember. So, I am not complaining on breakfast buffet hehehe... The staffs are polite, the F&B manager Herman was a very helpful. And the Chef will always be ready to explain to you yogya's cuisine in the restaurant. COOL. For the price that Im paying, I dont expect a 5 star treatment. So, Im alright. Oh... And for my 5 days stay, I did not encounter any noise. Not sure how others got it. Clean towels provided everyday. Hairdryer is upon request to the housekeeping. My room is at 216. Pretty quiet room if u dont mind the smoke smell. :D
