We used the Cakra Kusuma as a base for exploring the surrounding areas. It cost around Rp 45,000 in a taxo from the airport so wasn't too far away. We arrived fairly late in the evening, so we were pleased with the swift and friendly check in. We even managed to book an early take away breakfast, as we were being picked up at 3:30am.
The rooms were fairly basic, but clean and well maintained. The bathrooms were however really quite dated and the shower was almost painfully cold. Sure fire way to wake you up at 3am though! Our breakfast was delivered to our rooms in a box. Unfortunately, this was a half cooked piece of toast covered in sugary jam and chocolate sprinkles. Pretty horrible. But never mind.
The breakfast on our second day, served in the very pleasant restaurant area was a different story entirely. A nice selection of fruit, omlettes, toast, and hot Indonesian breakfast items were available and delicious.
The pool area was small but clean and pleasant.
I had a massage in the spa, which was lovely for the first forty minutes, but I felt sullied when he tried to massage me in the breast area, so just be aware of this. When I told him not to, he did something else non-intrusive, but still, I don't really want to be put in that position.
The price was very reasonable for the quality of the hotel. There were a couple of downsides though. Firstly, the location is not very convenient for the nicer areas of Yogja. If you are there sightseeing, it probably isn't the best choice. Secondly, the bar area didn't seem to be open, and even when we hovered here, passing staff just said hello and moved on. The walls were very thin, and I could hear anything going on outside and next door. Not a major problem as it was fairly quiet, but if the hotel had have been busy, this would have been a larger annoyance.
If you want to be close to the university, this is perfect.
