to be honest, we booked this by mistake, intending to book ibis malioboro instead, which is located just next to malioboro mall. ibis styles on the other hand, is a short 10mins walk away from malioboro street.
what a fortunate mistake we made! despite it being slightly further, what this meant was that we were away from the bustle and crowd,which brings with it some relief and quiet in the evenings. as it was just one street away, this trade-off was much appreciated.
there's a rooftop infinity pool which offers a stunning sunset over the city.
most importantly however, was the service we had. our itinerary involved several day trips at odd hours 3.30am/5am etc. and when we informed the hotel, they prepared very good breakfast sets for us for such journeys. on days when we could enjoy the spread, the hotel offers a wide variety covering international cuisine (eggs and sausages etc.), local cuisine (rice, noodles, porridge). requests we made (e.g. extra shower caps, utensils for our food deliveries etc.) were attended to with smiles and prompt responses.
overall, this was a fantastic place to stay and i recommend it to all who don't mind a short 10mins walk (if proximity to malioboro Street is a key consideration).
(p.s. there's a noodle stall just 5mins away called yammie pathuk, and it offers a delicious, value for money meal!)More
