“Good hotel, not-so-attractive swimming pool”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

LOCATION : Good (Jl Uirp Sumoharjo, a.k.a Jl.Solo), only 10 minute-drive to Malioboro. A lot of local food outlet nearby. At night you'll find street food along the street serving fried chicken etc.
LOBBY : spacious lobby with calming aromatherapy.
ROOM : king-sized comfy bed and pillows, water kettle, bathrobe, safe deposit box. iron and iron bar all in the room. AC is very cold, though there's a button to set the temperature but it made no difference between 25 DEGC or 30 DECG.
BATHROOM : standard amenities, no bath tub but love the powerful shower with 3-mode shower head. Hair dryer was provided upon request to housekeeping, which is not a popular practice at a 4 or 5-star hotel.
BREAKFAST : local food (bubur, gudeg, jamu, fried rice), chinesse, western (salad,cheese,cereals, bread/pastry, potato, baked red bean, bacon & sausages). Standard 4-star taste.
FACILITY : swimming pool is so small, it wiped away our interest of swimming.
SERVICE : friendly and helpful staff.

Nice hotel, nice design, good amenities, good location.

The bedroom size is average, the bed, pillow & blanket are comfortable. Nice amenities in the bathroom, although no bathtub - I don't need one anyway.

The restaurant is so so, trying to promote the long hotdog and giant burger. Nothing shout about, especially for the international selection. The breakfast is good, enough local selection on top of the standard international spread.

Why I didn't give full mark? Simply because the service was not so prompt. They tried to be polite and attentive, but when I asked for my bathroom that was slightly choked to be repaired, they need to come back twice for it. Then the hair dryer was not in the bathroom and it takes 15 minutes to have it delivered.

Actually my mom is staying here for 2 weeks attending a seminar in this hotel also.
I love the interior, it's so modern.
The room is quite good with very soft bed and pillows, the wifi is free which is good, even though not that fast, quiet slow sometimes.
The bathroom is very simple, I was hoping there is a bathtub.
Newspaper coming every morning.
Swimming pool and gym are quiet small but the design is good.
The parking lot is not that big, there are 2 floors of basement parking, you will get a parking space, somehow.

Breakfast is good, with many varieties of food, even they have sushi, the taste is normal, not too delicious not too bad. Dinner (buffet) have less varieties than breakfast and the taste is also below breakfast.

Problems:
1. At the first time, my mom asked for a room with single-king sized bed, but we given a room with two-small sized bed, our room doesn't have a hair dryer, and when my mom asked for one, it took like almost an hour to get one. It was in the morning and my mom is in hurry to attend the seminar, so it was quite inconvenient.
2. My mom asked to change the newspaper we get every morning from local Yogyakarta newspaper to Kompas, but it was not changed until the next 3 or 4 days.
3. The bed linen and blanket was not changed everyday, and toiletry was not given everyday until its empty.
4. Somehow, our room is not soundproof, so we can hear sound from outside or from room next to us, and it was a bit annoying when there is a baby crying from the room next to us.

Perfect hotel for non smokers! The room was (deluxe, level 8) not so big but clean, modern decor, standard bathroom and a very comfortable bed! Breakfast was nice, the pastries station was amazing, delicious local food too. We love the idea of serving the traditional Indonesian herbal (jamu) during breakfast and the way they serve it.unfortunately we didn't have the gut to try but we did captured some pictures of the lady with her tools in that section.Sadly, we have to request and (long)wait to get basic things done on our table like spoons or milk for our coffee.The Internet was really fast.good location.
Upon checked in (3dec,2pm)the front office staff escorted us to our floor, she's very kind and polite but during lining up for check out (5dec, arnd 4.45am), the staff(different person) was so slow and after been waiting for almost 15 minutes for our turn, somebody who came down later after us cut the line and the staff didn't say anything but attended that guest first.its disappointing because we were there before and we were rushing for our early flight to Bali that morning.we've been in Jogjakarta several times and that was our first stay in grand aston.overall its a nice strategic hotel to stay but if you looking for a good quality of hospitality in term of good service and manners you might have to re-think again.

Staying at this hotel for couple of days for work. The room and the bathroom was nice. It has ironing machine along with its table (deluxe type). The breakfast was good. The downside since I am a smoker is that they do not have rooms that allowed for smoking. They will imposed an IDR.2 mio if they caught you smoking in the hitel room. They only allowed to smoke in their open public area.

Stayed for 1 night at Grand Aston but I feel ver happy about this hotel. The room is clean and I love their breakfast especially their Bubur Ayam and Mini Martabak. Will consider this hotel if I go to Jogjakarta.
