We booked on line from UK and booked 3 night 4 day package which is everything the web site promises. We actually only did one trip out on the second day as the first day of 3 venues-sultans palace, Merapi volcano and borobodur temple was exhausting. The trips out do not include entrance fees but these do not break the bank and help to preserve and construct the attractions. I wouldn't recommend Sultans Palace but we were taken to a Batik artist shop and shown how they do Batik which was interesting this was while we waited for the Palace to open. A driver from the hotel picked us up at the airport and all the drivers were excellent and were able to translate for us on our trips. The meals were good but after the 3 nights we had probably had what we fancied off the menu. Breakfast was either American breakfast or Indonesian but the omelettes were good. The pool area is idyllic and the gardens are beautifully kept. The staff are very attentive and helpful. The rooms if you pay the higher room fee are excellent. Rooms 1,2,3 and 4 are very close to the kitchen and dining room and I would imagine they could be noisy but we had rooms 5,6 and 7 and these were large double rooms, excellent a/c, very good shower rooms and lots of storage, there is also a quick turn around laundry service. The larger rooms also have a front terrace with table and chairs which are very private due to the clever planting of large plants. This is an extremely clean and well run small guest house only 20 minutes from the airport. I would recommend it and I would return.
