“Legendary hotel but outdated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

just one night stayed there. nice old hotel. large and clean room. special breakfast variety but just so so. You can see a Gamelan set in lobby and large lobby there.
Need to renovate this hotel and choose younger staff to make it feel fresh hotel.
This is the first and large hotel in Malioboro street.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Hotel used to be very nice. It's a colonial building, but it has seen better days. The rooms are outdated, the bathroom very old - dirty carpets. Everything needs to be renovated and changed. The hotel has character, but it's not a comfortable or nice place to stay. I would recommend staying at a chained hotel.

The food is horrible - many strange things in the buffet. It's a Muslim country, so no pork.

There is a Garuda Indonesia Airlines office in front of the hotel (in the hotel's premises), so that's very convenient.

Won't stay again..but good for those on a budget and can't afford a better hotel.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are old and are all the same.

We stayed in Inna Garuda after moving from another hotel in Yogyakarta. We ordered a Junior Suite room and have a pleasant stay and rest. The location is in front of Malioboro street, which means that you can reach almost of the places of interest in center of Yogyakarta by walking.
Overall, we are very satisfied to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: The Junior Suite on the 3rd Floor beside the pool are large and comfortable.

The location is excellent. If there's a reason to upgrade my rating from average to very good, it is because of the hotel location.

The main building is an old colonial-era building. It has more modern extensions, guests rooms are located at the main building. No worry, it has been renovated.

A traditional musical set will greet you at the entrance.

About the location at Malioboro street, it is the heart of Yogyakarta's shoppings and tourism attractions.

Walk, just walk the street, do not take any motorbike taxi or any vehicles.
This bustling city street will greet you nicely. A nice experience.

At night, the Malioboro will be transformed into a center of street-food vendors extravaganza.

The hotel give us traditional music especially in the lobby. The location in the northest of Malioboro Street, so every night we can shopping in the Malioboro on foot. Angkringan food can be found around this hotel.

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
