Reviewed July 31, 2013

Stayed here for a few nights after staying in a string of dirty home stays for the previous week. I was happy to find that this place was spotless, and was a good base to explore Yogyakarta. Pros: quiet room, great view, clean, good wifi in lobby, good breakfast buffet, friendly staff, close to train station. Cons: no wifi in room, could do with some new towels maybe. No frills about this place, just a good standard hotel.

Room Tip: My room was on the Main Street, north facing, but it was still quiet and had a great view.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Basically rooms are clean with comfortable bed and pillow although extra pillow will be appreciated. The bathroom is clean as well. The air conditioning is not cooling enough though, even we already set it to minimum. Free wifi service is available at reception. Staff are helpful and friendly too. Breakfast is simple but good. And the hotel is just 5-10 mins walk away from Malioboro street but it's quite dark at night to walk alone, so do go in a group. Bad point is ; if you are a triple sharing , do ask for a bigger room (or an upgrade) because one of my room is a triple sharing and they just put a mattress on the floor between the two beds. The whole room became very cramp.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade from standard room if you're a triple sharing.

My husband and I stayed at Jentra Dagen for 3 nights. We were very happy with the cleanliness of the hotel. Good bed and pillows, clean bathroom (towels need attention though) They have such friendly and helpful staff who attended to our needs promptly (e.g. when I asked for the hairdryer and iron, and request to replenish teabags and sugar, the staff sent them almost immediately). Breakfast was simple but enough to fill in the morning tummy. I was happy that my husband was pleased with my selection of hotel. Most of all, he was pleased with the location which was just a walking distance away from Malioboro street (it was burstling with activities every night). If you feel like trying out local food, there are several stalls on the left and right of the street as you walk out of the hotel.

If you plan a holiday in Jogja, I would definately recommend Hotel Jentra Dagen.

My family and I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. The key point of choosing this hotel is the location. It is 5 minutes walk from Malioboro street which is very good for my family to go shopping every night in Malioboro street.

The good points of this hotel:
1. Location
2. Clean
3. Free coffee and tea in the room
4 Toothbrush and tooth paste are available in the bathroom
5. The staff at the reception and restaurant are friendly.

Bad points of this hotel:
1. Pillow is too soft
2. Air conditioner is not cooling enough although I set to 18 celcius. I found out that even reception area at the lobby is warm without air conditioner sometimes and Malioboro mall is also not cooling enough. Maybe it’s the country practice of using energy efficiency.
3. Insufficient tables to cater for large group of guests in the restaurant for breakfast at peak time.
4. Wifi service is only available at ground floor reception area. There is no wifi signal in the room.
5. Water flow draining out rate is too slow while bathing causing minor “flood” in the bathroom.

We stayed from Wednesday to Monday and it was crowded in restaurant for breakfast during weekend due to some domestic travelers tour group in conjunction of public holiday on 6th May 2013.
There are 2 men playing local instrumental music entertaining the guest during breakfast time on Sunday.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the crowd during breakfast peak time as it has limited tables available.

I stayed at this hotel for three nights during my business trip at Jogjakarta. The location is the best as it is just 5 minutes walk to the most famous night market Malioboro. The hotel was located at a side street called Jalan Dagen. The street was a bit dark but it is very safe to walk and the traffic is not that bad. Dagen is also a tourist street because there are a lot of hotels along the street. The hotel is quite new, but the parking area is limited. The lobby is bright and the staffs show good courtesy. Check in and check out are efficient. Just a few rooms are facing the road, others are facing the inner courtyard which was good as you will avoid the traffic noise. The room size is small especially the standard room, there is no place to put the luggage if you bring more than one piece. Every room has tea and coffee facility. The bed is not very soft but standard. The bathroom is even smaller with standing shower and the water power is just perfect. Toilet amenities is adequate, tooth brush, liquid soap (not soap bar), shampoo. Breakfast was included in the room rate. Not too many choices, most of the choices are Indonesian style breakfast such as fried rice, fried noodle, chicken, vegetables, bread, fruits. No egg station but you can ask them to cook for you and it is free. Breakfast area is always crowded especially at weekend as this hotel takes a lot of group tour and it will be quite noisy at night due to domestic tourist was sometimes quite noisy. Free Wifi was only at lobby and restaurant area. This hotel has only one restaurant and no music lounge. Outside the hotel there are a lot of place to eat. If you like the traditional 'warung', there are plenty of them.

Room Tip: Choose a room not in the ground floor as privacy is a concern. If you don't like the traffic noi...

Room very neat and comfortable. They served a good cuisine for breakfast and Halal. Receptionist friendly and very helpful. Jentra Dagen Hotel Malioboro is situated along Dagen Road in central Yogyakarta. Free Wi-Fi and parking are provided. Jentra Dagen is 350 metres from the lively Malioboro Street and 650 metres from Fort Vredeburg..

The hotel is great for exploring Jogja and surroundings, 5 minutes walk from malioboro.
Clean rooms, nice staff.
Downside is that the european breakfast lacks choice its mostly focussed on the asian cuisine, which was in my case annoying due to the well known stumach adjustment issues non asians tend to have while comming to asia.
