The location of the Ministry of Coffee is excellent. In the heart of the Jl Prawirotaman area of Yogya on the same road as some really good budget restaurants. It is just about within walking distance of Jl Malioboro - if it's not too hot to walk around! Quiet setting, above the large coffee shop, with refreshing features like a fountain and small balconies for the rooms. Around the corner there are loads of laundrettes and food stalls and an Indomarket 2 minutes walk away.
The room was overall a bit small, but it was well decorated and the ensuite bathroom was big enough. For a few days this place is big enough. Coffee and tea making facilities, A/C, free wifi and TV all in the room too. The balcony is a real treat.
We chose this place from the Lonely Planet and found their description of the food to be totally wrong! They must have polished up their cake & dessert making skills as the chocolate mousse was amazing and so unexpected in this part of the world! The breakfast choices were great and big portions too. I had cereals (albeit with odd milk!) for the first time in SE Asia here! My partner had the banana pancakes twice and both times couldn't finish them - to his disappointment!
The staff were quiet, attentive and very polite.
As well as being a cool place to stay, the downstairs coffee shop is a great quiet place to chill out away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Yogya. I would definately stay here again.
