“Good Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

Our stay was short but I they made a good impression, and feel quite grateful to the staff for taking care of us. The reason we came to Inna Garuda was that I started to come down with Heat Exhaustion after a morning visit to Borobudur and we needed a place to relax and cool down. Our driver took us to Inna Garuda so that I could cool down in the lobby, but I soon realized that this was some serious heat exhaustion. The staff gave me ice to help cool own but we ended up getting a room for a short stay of about 5 hours. The hotel staff did not hesitate and gave us a good price, nice room and offered to send the hotel doctor. The doctor came quickly and helped me out. My wife had a good meal at the hotel as well.
Although I stayed there for less than desirable reasons, I liked the hotel and would be happy to stay there if I came to Yogyakarta again. I am grateful to the friendly staff and doctor.

The strongest reason for choosing this hotel was the best location on malioboro street,which is the favorite road of the tourists. Easy to find this hotel which is located close to the railway station. The hotel is spacious and quite an old hotel, hotel rooms and supporting equipment would be better if restored. However, the room was fit for use. Breakfast provided quite good and varied. Kinda hard to find parking especially on weekends when the hotel has several events simultaneously.

Room Tip: Request a room which is not to far from the elevator

this hotel was a legendary of Jogjakarta, located right in the starting point of Malioboro street. You need to observe the architecture, it's a very old building, built on 1908.

An old colonial building at Malioboro street. Location wise, it is the place that you would choose due it's strategic location, it will save your time and you can enjoy shopping at Malioboro by walking across the street, near to Keraton and Taman Sari. Cheap rides to keraton by trishaw or horse carriage.
The hotel can arrange for you for car rental + driver to go around the city, trip to Borobudur, Ramayana Ballet Performance at Prambanan Temple etc.
Went there for business trip and family vacation. Our mothers were happy coz shopping made easy to them just by crossing the street!

We know those jargon for real estate business. Now I know what it means for hotel business. Situated literally in the center of the town, this is all that this hotel is offering to you. Nothing more, nothing less. You could get more with this hotel's rate, even with cheaper price. But as I wrote in title, location is what this hotel is about.

The Hotel Garuda (now Inna Garuda) was built during the colonial times and is located at Jalan Malioboro, the main road of Yogyakarta. So you won't find any difficulties to find a place to eat ot go shopping. Although an old hotel, there is nothing spectacular or romantic about it. It seems like it went through several renovations, but they did not make the atmosphere more "classical". You would see or two murals on the lobby wall, but placed too high, that it would not strike you that this hotel had some historical significance. Apart than that I think the service was nice, the staff were friendly, and the food was okay.I guess the only plus point for this hotel is its location at Jalan Malioboro.

It's probably one of the oldest hotel in Yogyakarta. But it's still pretty well maintained. I love the breakfast in the morning, featuring some of local comfort foods. The room is clean. Although it is an older hotel, you don't smell that musky smell of an older building. We ordered massage in our room, it's very relaxing. It is very conveniently located on Yogyakarta's most famous street, Malioboro. So you can walk for shopping for local arts and batik.
