Whiz Hotel Malioboro
Ranked #56 of 212 Hotels in Yogyakarta
Reviewed February 7, 2014

A very good & strategic location, minimalist hotel built in the middle of Yogya's crowd, good value for this.
Room was okay, what to expect from a budget hotel anyway. but they should maintain the cleanliness of the sheet and bathroom. What i don't like is, they don't have a smoking room, and i were asked to sign a disclaimer not to smoke in the room. Well that's good actually, for those who doesn't smoke, but it wasn't good at all for me. The management should think to open a smoking room, i suggest.
Staff are friendly enough but seemed too busy with their things. More courtesy from them would be nice.
Breakfast was so so, once again what to expect?
Overall, it was just okay.

Room Tip: Room facing to heaven, if they have.

This is my first stay and surely won't comeback. For the rate they charged us not worth it at all, it means I pay only for the location that is really close to Malioboro street, where you can have all the shopping experience from fashion, accessories and foods.

They told us not to smoke in our room which is good because we don't like the cigarette's smell, but then what we experience that our room full of cigarette's smells even worse we found the cigarette in the shower area. They only help us to spray the room spray which is not helping, we can't change our room.

The room was small, the worst part was the shower area and toilet area they put in little cubicle, in front near the room entrance, not comfortable at all.

Breakfast also not helping at all, better you just walk outside and have breakfast outside.

I choosed this hotel because of the location. Very near Malioboro street, many street food surrounding. But the hotel is average. We booked 3 rooms. The rooms were small. First day, 2 rooms were facing the wall, dark and smelly. Then at that night, we asked others better rooms. Second day, after waiting and waiting in the receptionist, they gave us rooms facing Dagen street and those're better. Breakfast was good, and the kitchen staff were friendly.

I was stay at this hotel for one night. Based on my oppinion, this hotel gave me positive experience, though there are some areas that should have been better.
The location is good. It's in walking distance from the Tugu train station. Down the famous Malioboro street.
The staff were okay. They're friendly and helpful.
The cleanliness of the room was enough, and the bed gave me a good quality sleep.
Breakfast was very limited option. They offered me chicken porridge, or fried rice, or nasi gudeg, or nasi pecel. Please notice the 'or'.
The room was so small so it's hard to even say a prayer.
But for the budget I won't have too many complains. I will consider to stay here again upon my next trip to Jogjakarta.

Conveniently located at Jalan Dagen which is right in the middle of the busy and bustling Malioboro Street, Whiz Hotel left a positive experience, I stayed for one night on transit to Pekalongan to meet up with local friends. The room that I was staying in was a twin bedroom, the size of the bathroom was somewhat claustrophobic, I had no problem but a big person might have. Air conditioner was working perfectly, no problem with water or flushing, abundant toilet papers and tissues, basic shampoo/soap, Wi-Fi was OK, occasional hiccups with internet connection but it's accessible in both lobby and the room (take note that some other hotels only give you Wi-Fi access at lobby and/or only Ethernet port in the room). There was a table and a chair facing the window for business travelers, reading lights on the table and beds.

Overall it was a pleasant experience, but for the rate I paid and the facilities given it was a tad too expensive though, but it's tolerable considering its close proximity to Malioboro Street. The only minor annoyance I experienced was the lift buttons which took form of some kind of touch panel, the other guests and I had trouble with it, sometimes it wouldn't recognize our finger touch (I spent 2 minutes in the lift trying to press my floor button, it eventually worked after dozens of touches with different fingers).

How to get there:
If you're coming from the airport, simply take the TransJogja bus rapid transit from its shelter at the airport and alight at "Malioboro 2" shelter, walk against the traffic until you see an alley across the road which has the green sign "Whiz", cross the road and walk through that alley, Whiz will be on your right. This would only cost you IDR 3,000 per person for the bus, save a taxi fare for a souvenir.

Located in Dagen, Malioboro, just 20 Meters to Malioboro Street. My Room not too good, because i smell not good from my bathroom, maybe there is leaks in sewer. Overall this is good hotel, sevice are good and staffs always smile ( the Security and Receptionist is good ). Breakfast is limited, you can choice one of three menus. They always clean your room and replace your toiletries. Internet is good enough. You must try to enjoy sunset from Hotel Terrace at 5th Floor.

Room Tip: For Smokers, you must take room at 5th floor. All rooms are Non-Smoking Rooms, but at 5th Floor you...

great location at jalan dagen, the middle alley of malioboro street, so basically it is in the center of malioboro. the hotel is surrounded by local batik store (which is costs more than in malioboro street stalls).
comfortable, neat and clean small room, the hot water was working well, wi-fi in the room was also working well.
staffs were very helpful and friendly, because i had not made the reservation before. but the problem is the receptionist i found is only one per shift, so i have to wait quite a long time to get served. the security were also very helpful when i borrowed helmet to ride a motorcycles from morning until afternoon.
breakfast is not buffet-style, you can only order 1 menu per person, but the beverages, bread and fruits are free flow.
overall, enjoyed my stay here with loved one.
