It's stunningly beautiful. The latout is nice. There's a tower with a seating area up top with lovely views of the rooftops of Solo and a coolish breeze in the morning and evening. The room locks with and old fashioned key which I found charming. Little thins made it hard to enjoy though. One is that there was only one... More

The Cakra is breathtakingly beautiful! It's sure to impress you with it's lush gardens and colonial Javanese architecture. The staff are very helpful and will jump at the chance to answer any of your questions. We also had a great experience with hiring one of their drivers to show us some of Solo's rural temples. For 17ish U.S. dollars, we... More

Cakra looks as it does on its website. It is a lovely old Javanese home with nice gardens, a lot of history and a beautiful pool but we checked out early: no water in the shower, the toilet did not flush. Small breakfast for three adults was 4 slices of white bread, 2 with something sweet smeared on them. We... More

Historic building buffs: this place is for you! The upper class traditional Javanese residential compound is an architecture gem. The very basic rooms are standard for the price. What you pay for is the ambience. Spend your waking time outside the room. Cool down in the small pool looking over the decked out pendopo. Linger in the living area imbibing... More

The setting and interiors of the place are amazing - a traditional Javanese compound, full of sculptures and "oldie" charm, like from romantic movies on colonial past. Add atmospheric walkways in from of the rooms, a charming tower in the middle of the compound and a well-kept tropical garden all around and you feel being in a fairy tale. They... More

The Cakra Homestay of Solo (Surakarta) would have been good, but the young manager/owner tried to over charge me in three different ways, including charging me for the date of checkout. He also said I was there a day longer, but when I asked to see the records, it was clear that I had never been checked in. The price... More

We loved this place. It was very inviting and atmospheric with a pool area, a relaxing tower, music room, lounge area. Rooms were basic but the ambiance of the place made up for it. Guy who worked there, young and friendly went out of his way to help us. Booking onward travel, telling us when the dances were on, and... More

A sanctuary in busy Solo. Big grounds with lots of trees and places to sit and relax. Staff were very helpful. Pool was spotless and cool, they even brought out floating toys for our kids who had a ball. Bathrooms had standard mandi which for us was fine. I would definitely stay here on my next trip to Solo.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a twin room on my own. Only one plug for the whole room including powering the wall fan. The architecture and displays were cool but felt quite out of place, it felt like staying in an Indonesian museum. Breakfast was just a couple of slices of papaya and a toast jam sandwich. Toilets weren't... More
