“You get what you pay for”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

I recently stayed at the Metro guest house for 5 nights. I only read the other reviews here after having left and I'd say my experience was somewhere inbetween. My fan-only double room with ensuite bathroom (150.000 rp/night incl breakfast) was spacious but not very clean, especally the bathroom which was just plain dirty. The room wasn't cleaned for the entire time I was there which didn't help.. The rest of the hotel is nice with beautiful old furniture, a little terrace outside where you can have breakfast and free wifi throughout which was fast and worked very well.
Maybe the more expensive AC rooms across the street which look out onto the swimming pool are nicer. The swimming pool itself was very big and nicely secluded with a few old deckchairs to lounge in though again, not very clean (the pool).
The staff were very friendly and helpful and can arrange all sorts of tours and tranport for you.

Obviously I was in a very cheap room in the middle of a great area but all in all I got the feeling I was mainly paying for the (excellent) free wifi and the promise of a pool and if I'd spent an extra 50.000 rp / night somewhere else in the prawirotaman area I'd have had a much more pleasant experience.

I stayed in Metro Guest house for three nights.

The structure is very nice and in a good location, next to a street full of restaurants.The rooms are ok, with A/C. There were some spider webs in the bathroom, which are not very nice, but besides that the room was overall clean.

The staff was vey helpful, They helped us to organize trips and transfers and they had very helpful suggestions.

Breakfast (included), was nice, with also fruits and coffee or tea (they also provided "take away" breakfast on the day where we had a trip early in the morning!). There is the possibility to use a computer for free and a nice swimming pool in the second building.

I would reccomend to go there!

This guesthouse is ok, but not great.

The assets:  centrally located in the Pirowatan area, big swimming pool, clean bed sheets. 

Not so good: no cleaning of the room or changing tools in three days, only three places to chill in the sun near the swimming pool, cobwebs on the ceiling in the bedroom and a leak toilet.
It shows that this guesthouse was built in 1986 and hasn't been renovated since.

We've stayed here in July 2012 for 150.000 RP per night for a double room, a reasonable price, but there are better options in the streets nearby for the same price or -if you want a swimming pool- for 25.000-50.000 RP more per night.

We booked several good trips via the hotel: a day trip to Borobudur-Prambanan and a 3 day trip to Bromo-IJen. The reception staff of Metro guesthouse is really friendly and helpful.

Old furniture but overall is quite good. AC, TV, spacy bathroom (include bath tub) and breakfast include (nasi soto). Location near Keraton. Swimming pool. If travelling on budget, Metro is a good alternative. But dont expect much as the price says so.

I find the other reviewers pretty harsh. Dont exPect anything new and mOdern. It is an Old place and furniture is slowly desintegrating but it was clean enough, no bed bugs, and quiet. The pool is actually accross the street but seems clean. Breakfast very small, 1 egg and 2 white toasts. But for 150,000 rp in that area for good wifi connection and pool it is good value. If travelling on budget its good alternative
