“Not excellent but good enough”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We stayed there for 3 nights in april 2013. The room was small, but pretty clean and comfortable enough with a nice bathroom. The location is really good: it takes less than 5 minutes to walk to Jalan Malioboro and you're right opposite of an area with nice small streets and lots of restaurants. Breakfast was good with various meal options. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall we are pretty happy with this hotel.
Some comments though: the breakfast area wasn't very clean. Dirty glasses and cutlery, dirt on the floor .. And the hotel was quite noisy, not from the street ( no noise coming from there) but from the hallway: other guests and esp. the band playing in the evening made a lot of noise throughout the hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room as far away from the staircase as possible, to minimize the noise coming from below.

Well, spending 2 nights there, I was less than impressed with the room, no bar fridge, dodgy wifi, and less than accommodating staff. You would think that when you are paying $55 + you would get the basics....you would get the same standard for a room that you basically would pay $20 tops for in Bali, makes you think about value for money.

Would I come back to the Grage again ...NO!

Would I recommend the Grage...NO!

Room Tip: wouldn't bother

We asked for twin bed, and they gave us king size. And the receptionist was not polite and blame me that I was wrong. She said "it is twin bed room!I think you re wrong..bla bla bla.. We send a bell boy to see the room mam"
When the bell boy came,he saw it was a king bed room. Then we change room..to the twin bedroom.

But the air cond broke. Uugghhhh!!!

We tell the recept twice by phone that the AC broke..but no respons from them. Then we have to go to the recept down stair. Then,there s respons.

Than we change room again. But have to wait,because the room was not set yet!
Ugghhhh

Bad service

Very bad service

Actually this hotel clean, it s in good condition. Everything look great. The location is near malioboro.
But the person that work in here,the service..that's the problem.

I would say, that the Grage Ramayana Hotel is located in a very central area of Yogyakarta. That is the biggest advantage of this hotel, in my opinion. Shopping and dining at your door step. The hotel is quite modern but basic. But compared to the other budget hotels in the area, I think this hotel was a great selection. The room was very basic and so was the bathroom. It had hot water, which was good. The breakfast was more Asian, so be prepared to try more of the local cuisine (though there were fruits, bread selections and cereal as well). The staff is extremely accommodating so they made our stay a good one. We welcomed the experience of being with more of the domestic market, as I noticed many locals use this hotel. Overall, it was a good experience.

Room Tip: Booking directly with the hotel may get you a better rate as compared to other websites.

Our stay was very pleasant and beautiful. Quiet and peaceful environment .Friendly, efficient and attentive staff. Had enjoyed our 3 nights stay with no hiccups and or any fuss. Main shopping area ( malioboro ) is just walking distance away. Good food in the hotel and is cheaper than eating outside.

We stayed here during peak season, but Ramadan so we got a twin standard room for 375,000. The room is pretty standard for such business hotels - wardrobe, small table chairs and wall mounted tv. This had various channels with about 4 English speaking ones. Wifi is available in the room. The curtains were lined to keep out the morning sun. A buffet style breakfast is included which offered the basics at a reasonable quality. Staff were friendly and called for a taxi, which arrived promptly, to take us to the bus station.

There are two niggles: a very poor quality band played in the lounge area until 11pm. This could be heard on the 2nd Floor; the bathroom plumbing was not as good as it should be so a smell lingered.
