“Cheap and strategic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

This hotel is near Malioboro Street. The room is clean, cozy and spacious. I like the breakfast, although not to many dishes, the staff attend to you with a smile. But the best feature is the location; restaurants are plentiful in the area... there's a grill fish restaurant nearby and it's cheap. If you plan to go Jogja, this is a nice and affordable hotel!

Room Tip: Room 106 is near to the pool and Coffeehouse!

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days and it was indeed very pleasant. The staff were friendly and the best thing about this hotel is the location. Food outlets are just around the corner and the main shopping street is just 3 minutes away. Breakfast was good enough and the staff acted promptly to your requests.

Room Tip: All rooms are ground floor.

Even not a five star hotel, but the location, customer service, cleanliness and food is great! I especially enjoyed the location of restaurant. In the center of the yard, next to the pool, away from the street but still with a view to outside! It is also close to the train station, walking distance from the beautiful and nice old neighborhood and coffee shops....

Room Tip: Discuss the kind of room you want, they staff will provide good information!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This hotel is located within 100 metres of the main train station in Yogyakarta. I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of June 2013. It is a traditional style building with about 30 rooms in total located in a single storey arrangement around the open air restaurant and swimming pool. The rooms are basic with aircon, but are rather dark inside and the bathroom decor is very old. Outside each room is two seats and a small table. Staff very polite and although the bed was comfortable, I would agree with previous reviewers on the noise especially from 6.00 am every day. The walls in the rooms are not well sound proofed and you can also hear the traffic from outside.
The hotel seems to attract mainly Indonesian families, and presuming they are up early for prayers they all seem to then converge in the breakfast and pool area when it opens at 6.00. From then on there is lots of nose from rattling cutlery/crockery, loud children etc. The breakfast was good but you had to be up early to get the best of it otherwise it's gone.

Overall good enough apart from the noise in the morning.

A friendly and very helpful staff. Clean, quiet, TV with Western channels, many areas to lounge in, the swimming pool and the dinning area in a beautiful setting. Good location, can walk to Malioboro and many restaurant and travel agencies. The breakfast and menu are fine. I stayed 1 week and enjoyed my stay very much. I would definitely stay there again. English spoken here.

This was a clean, comfortable hotel located very close to Malioboro. Malioboro is just 5 mins walk from this hotel, so you are near all the action, but away from the noise as well.

The room was a good size, and bathroom was decent was as well.

Staff was friendly and helpful.

There was a small swimming pool - good for a short dip when the weather gets too hot.

Room Tip: The rooms nearer to the reception has a stronger wifi.
