“Good location!!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

I stayed in this hotel already 2 times and will come back again. The reason why i want to come back again is because the location. The perfect location in Dagen Street is the street exactly in Malioboro area. Whiz Hotel is just 2 minutes walk distance from Malioboro Mall and just 5 minutes walk if you want to Beringharjo Market.

i was staying for a night on January 2014. This hotel has a good and minimalis decoration, the room is standard, suitable just for taking a rest after shopping or walking around Malioboro street. This hotel is not designed for traveler who want to spend some times and having relaxation in the hotel. The location in on Dagen street which just 3 minutes walk to Malioboro street, it is very ideal for traveler who travel to Yogya for shopping, or spending the day touring around Yogya, or business trip. I would recommend this hotel for traveler who has the purpose of staying in Yogya for value price but still can enjoy the Malioboro Street.

Pros: 1. Friendly and very prompt service better than some 4 or 5-star hotels.
2. Free wi-fi (good connection) in the room.
3. A two-minute walk to busy Malioboro - the shopping haven of Yogyakarta.
4. Easy access to the "becak" (3-wheel trishaw), the horse carriages and taxis.
5. Ala carte breakfast (1 choice out of 3) plus free flow of mango or guava juice, coffee
and toast bread with butter or jam.

Cons: 1. No coffee-making facilities not even a kettle!
2. No safe deposit box
3. No pen/pencil and paper, no stationery provided.
4. No wardrobe
5. No mirror in the room except for one in the toilet.
6. No morning newspaper.
7. No buffet breakfast.
8. No bathroom slippers. Hairdryer has to be requested for.

My two-cents worth of advice:
I've stayed in many hotels in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and China. with the exception of Air Asia's Tune Hotel which is clearly a budget hotel and is cheap, Whiz Hotel is really not the kind of hotel that I would return for another stay. A night in a double room at about USD40 (RM120) inclusive of 20% tax is definitely not money's worth. But then again this is subjective. If you expect stationery and a mirror in the room, then this is definitely not the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window to the outside (view).

The location is perfect as it is located in the middle of the crowds spot in Yogyakarta. The staff were fantastic, greeting me by my name and the room was clean enough even it was too small. I got the room in the first floor and the windows was viewing the alley and it was not very nice because we could see some staff going in and out and sometimes they look inside the window. The toilet was a bit smelly and the property doesn't look very perfect, well perhaps because of the earthquake. The breakfast was ok as it was served with ala carte style. overall performance was great and i enjoyed my stay there. I recommend this hotel

Room Tip: don't choose the first floor.

A recommended budget hotel which has all you need, with good services from the friendly staff, free wifi, good location, nice breakfast, and good location as its just few steps away from Jalan Malioboro! No worries for supper as from the hotel all the way out to Jalan Malioboro, there's plenty of stalls along the way with good and cheap foods! I'll definitely be coming back!

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.
