Good base for Prambanan and Borobudur sightseeing. The hotel has a beautiful lobby and lush pool area with waterfalls (however a female in a bathing suit swimming would attract a LOT of male attention). The hotel is located about a 18 - 20 minute walk (casual pace) from Malioboro street. There are bicycle rickshaws right outside the hotel at all times, and also on Malioboro street, to take you back and forth for about 20,000 to if you don't want to walk it. The room was modern with flat screen TV. The TV had at least 3 premium movie channels in English, plus other English channels. The toileties included a toothbrush, but no hair conditioner or body lotion. There is a handy hotpot with coffee/tea, and 2 complimentary bottles of water replaced daily. The breakfast is really outstanding with a table full of interesting Asian selections, another with fresh fruits and yogurt, and another area with breads, plus an egg station. There's a wall of various juices and a shake station, too. The free wifi did not reach the rooms on the eight floor and was weak on the 3rd floor, so you might try a lower floor for a stronger signal. Wifi worked great in the lobby, plus the staff will let you use the computer at the guest relations desk if you don't have your own. Staff was very courteous and accommodating as I had to change my room the 2nd night. I asked or a quieter room since the 4:34am call to prayer wakes up every rooster in a 5 mile radius. I moved from the 3rd to 8th floor, and it was super quiet. The hotel doesn't open the restaurant for lunch or dinner, but offers prompt in-room dining 24 hours. They don't add any room service charges or anything extra, so it's just the menu prices which are very reasonable. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
