We found sanctuary at the Eclipse Hotel after vacating a nearby hotel due to a bad experience there. The Eclipse was about twice as expensive (around 48$ US per night) but ten times better! This place is like a tiny resort in the middle of Yogja, in the midst of numerous cafes and shops geared toward travelers. My wife and I were thoroughly charmed by this hotel. I have a feeling that The Eclipse is a cut above the local competition, "guest houses", etc.
Our room: Spacious, spotless, well appointed, nice lighting (no bare florescent lights) well insulated (I mean quiet), great A/C, lots of thoughtful small details.
The staff: Competent, pleasant, polite, professional, very helpful, comprehensible English, and for what it's worth, attractive.
Hotel environs: Well designed and styled, free Wi-Fi, clean, lots of comfy lounging areas, ample greenery, lovely immaculate pool, impressive complimentary breakfast, fun open air restaurant.
Location: Right in the middle of Prawirotaman
All in all, this was a fine place to stay and a welcomed place to relax after a day navigating the streets and sights of Yogjakarta. If you are looking for a super-cheap, earthy, sweltering, grimy, visceral, bare-bones developing country lodging experience to galvanize your traveling credibility, then certainly look elsewhere. if you appreciate the positives mentioned earlier in this review, then look to The Eclipse.
