we won't be returning anytime soon. Stayed a total of 3 nights in April 2011.
The hotel is located close to Malioboro Street (Batik galore!) and is just across the road from the railway station which is a plus point if you are using the trains but the announcements from the loudspeakers can be annoying for those whose room is facing the road. There is also a Matahari Department store in Malioboro Street.
We stayed in a very basic standard room with air con, attached bathroom (very small) with hot and cold shower, no wifi (we were told we need to pay another USD10 to upgrade to Superior Room in order to get wifi), no fridge, no kettle, no in-room safe and no hair dryer. Our room is dirty and not well maintained. We do get 2 bottles of drinking water everyday. With a few mosques a street away, the daily morning call to prayer at 4:30am is loud and clear. Good thing we are quite use to this and is able to go back to sleep. The breakfast in the only restaurant in the hotel is acceptable with coffee, tea, juice, bread, salad, fresh fruits and local dishes. However one can order for eggs (cooked any style) from the kitchen. There's also a small pool accessible through the restaurant however we didn't use it.
There's a bunch of Becha (Pedicab) lined up in front of the hotel for short excursions but we didn't use them as we prefer to walk. The best cure for tired legs is to visit a massage center call Kakiku (My Legs, how apt!) close by. Turn left after exiting from the hotel and then hang another left at the traffic lights. Its about 50 meters from the lights on the left side of the road. There are 2 shops of the same name side by side - choose the one with air con even though it costs slightly more as the set up is more comfortable.
As for ATM, there's a row of them from different banks on the right side after exiting the hotel and a convenient store a few meters up the street on the way to Malioboro.
