“A hotel near the busy Malioboro Street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2015

Tis hotel is situated at the Malioboro Street which very busy during the day and night. You can find shops, street foods nearby. This hotel also near to the historical Keraton Palace. Although the hotel is quite old but it is clean, room is big, water pressure is good and the breakfast consider good too. Free wifi in the room, and free shuttle from hotel at airport vice versa. The staffs are friendly too.

Room Tip: The deluxe room is actually good enough.

Standing on the corner of Malioboro Street, this hotel is clearly visible as you enter the street where you meet both traditional and contemporary of everything.
The hotel is built in the early 1900s so you can expect some historical atmosphere by the time you enter the premises.
The staffs are friendly and helpful to ensure our pleasant stay, in the hotel as well as in the city.
While Malioboro Street is famous with the sidewalk eateries, you would not want to miss having a meal in the hotel's restaurant that serves the authentic traditional foods of Yogyakarta.

This hotel sits in one end at Malioboro street. Only few minutes walk from Train station. Built in 1908 and started this operation in 1911 and already change its name six times. The room is quite big, have many meeting room, often use as place for weddings. It has wide variety of dishes for each meal time. There is Money Changer near by, ATM mechine and gift shop is just accross the road. Only few minutes walk from Malioboro Mall, Mirota Batik, Bringharjo batik market, alun-alun (Grand yard) and The Palace. If you use becak (traditional transport, using man power or motor power), its only takes less than 5 minutes to the palace.. dont forget to bargin before taking the becak..

Room Tip: room with window to the street or pool is better..

The location of this hotel is just great. Close to the main street, train station and lots of restaurants and shops.
It's also close to the Sultan Palace (15 min walking) which is one of the main touristy attractions nearby. Breakfast was very good with a huge selection of choices.
This hotel hosts several events and there was a marriage the weekend we stayed there.
To sum up, this a great place to stay in Yogyakarta.

It may be a little jaded around the edges but Inna Garuda is a great place to stay in Yogyakarta. For $80 Aus a night including breakfast we were right in the middle of all the action of Malioboro road. It appeared that this hotel is government run and full of local conference goers. Our travel guide said few of his customers stay there as it is full most of the time. It's worth staying here just for the buffets. It's an enormous spread with lots of different food from all over Java. At lunch they even had a cover band. Based on the number of people eating here the local travellers like it as well. For the international tourist the Sultan's Palace is within walking distance, as is Mirota Batik the biggest and best selection of Batik and other handicrafts under one roof. So do yourself a favour and book early with the wonderful Masayu in reception.

Room Tip: Stay up the back for the more modern rooms.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2014

As many reviewers indicated, this is an average hotel. The reason why I selected this hotel is as follows ;
1. Better , Central , location in the city of yogjakarta
2. Being in a proximity with an easy access to Borobodhur and Prembanan temple which were our primary concern in this tour
3. The reasonable cost.
If you are looking for a high end hotel with better facilities, this may not be the choice. But if the choice is an ordinary hotel, this could be one of your choices. Many eating joints are available nearby and the close by mall houses a food court with many different food options .

What are the negatives of the hotel:
1. Personally, internet access was a big issue for me. Access was not available within the room. So always when. I wanted access , I had to go down to the lobby.
2. Bathroom was bit messy , though it did not obstruct our staying a day
3. One other distraction that was beyond the control of the hotel was the noise primarily due to its location in a busy sector in the city. Morning silence is also disturbed by the morning prayers of the nearby mosque. These cannot be resolved by the hotel . But it is something that the visitors should be aware of when staying in the hotel.
All in all this hotel offers your money's worth given the rates and central location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a good bathroom.The room location should be away from the front street

This hotel is located at Malioboro street, the most famous street in Yogyakarta I supposed as you can find many unique souvenirs and attraction, ride andong or becak, buy batik, etc. It's so strategic for tourists. The ambience is classic and the staffs are very nice and helpful. You won't regret your stay here.
