the hotel is old building. the location is not at the malioboro but not far from there. you can go to malioboro either by bus (jalur 4) or taxi (about 10,000 rupiah) and not far from everywhere you need to go in the city. we had breakfast and lunch at the hotel, the food had many varians and most delicious. the staff are helpful.
i liked the welcome drink and ginger candy at the reception.
the check in process need improvement, after checked in my friend's room was ready at 15.00 pm, and my boss who checked in in the evening didn't get the room ready too.
there is no staff stand by near the pool. i brought my baby to swim at 10.00 am and can't find any staff to help to pump the neck ring and when found he took almost half an hour to pump it, came when we almost done swimming.
