Stayed in Pop Hotel from 5th - 10th Nov 2012 with my family (3 young children). It is still a relatively new hotel (opened in June/July 2012 I think). Overall impressions were positive. As mentioned by the other travellers, room's were in good condition, clean and beds and linen of good quality to provide a good night's sleep. Overall good value for money
Staff was friendly and accomodating to my basic request like finding side by side rooms for my family, relocation to the back portion of hotel which was quieter, calling a taxi, extra blanket, international adaptor, etc. Breakfast is basic with a small packed rice and tea/coffee. Note, when you book in most hotels booking site, it is mentioned that breakfast is not included, so this simple "bite" is a bonus.
Location is about 1.5km from main Malioboro street. Short straight road walk if you are up to it but I decided to take the taxi due to my young children and congested traffic. There is a fairly large wet market opposite the hotel, and if you are like me where I like to see how the locals hang-out, nothing better than the wet market experience. There are many restaurants within walking distance (1km radius)so getting food is not an issue. If you are too tired after a day out, just get the reception to help you order pizza from the local pizza joint delivered to your room.
Finally some considerations. During my stay there were mainly local tourist staying, including a student tour group. If this is not your thing and you want an "expatriate" environment, pls. consider this. As this is a budget hotel, there are no cool hang-out areas within the hotel to sit, relax and dream your life away. Adequate TV channels (all the usual suspects available) to keep you occupied for the short hours before you knock off to sleep. Free Wifi and there a 3 PC's beside the reception for your quick emails and facebook updates.
