What a beautiful hotel. This is the first time I've ever asked to do the in-hotel tour. Although only a small part of the hotel is from the early 1900's, they have captured the feel throughout the hotel, and any minute, I expected Hercule Poirot to pop around the corner.
The rooms were very comfortable, and we had interconnecting rooms. Had a little trouble with this because if we shut an interconnecting door, we discovered that we needed a key from housekeeping to open it again.
Our room was quite some way from the front desk, so this might be something to discuss if you have any difficulties walking.
Breakfast choice was good, with local specialties presented by staff in traditional costume, as well as a range of western food.
The pool looked great, but we didn't find time to have a splash there.
Wasn't far away from the Marlioboro (sp?) shopping precinct, and about a 5 minute taxi ride to the sultan's palace or water palace.
We organised a day trip with a hotel driver, who was very helpful in guiding us to and from each attraction and keeping unwelcome hawkers away from us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This legenderay hotel was initially built as private estate in 1918. Through the ensuing decades, the property changed hands a number of times, until a Dutch caretaker turned it into Pensioner Hotel. The Phoenix name was deliberately chosen by the last proprietor who hoped that it would remain intact forever, believing in the ancient myth of The Phoenix, the sacred fire bird symbolizing regeneration throughout eternity.The Phoenix Hotel is elegantly situated in down town Yogyakarta, the cradle of Javanese civilization. The legendary Malioboro Street is just nearby, while the world herigate Borobudur and Prambanan temples are only an hour drive. Yogyakarta's cultural heritage and picturesque settings emit a distinctive charm that seldom fails its visitors.The 144 beautifully appointed rooms are reflecting the ambiance of bygone era wrapped in modern comfort facilities, enabling its occupant to celebrate a glorious past without losing the beauty of contemporary living. ... more less
