“(Actually) a nice budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

A nice budget hotel for budget traveler. I went there because all the room in my regular hotel was sold out. The driver of my rental car suggested to check this relatively new hotel not far from Tugu (zero point of Yogyakarta). The color of the hotel is vibrant. Just enough room space to move and small bathroom. Breakfast is so simple, I suggest to eat breakfast outside the hotel. Room price relatively cheap, you can find 3 bed in one room so it is really suitable for budget traveller.

We arrived & were greeted by an open, bright, airy lobby with pops vibrant colours everywhere. These vibrant colours seem to give the impression of equally vibrant energy. Sadly, the reception staff didn't seem to be as high energy (an off day perhaps?) & checking in wasn't as brisk (as in some of the other places we'd stayed at). No big deal at all - we just took the time to snap some pix & explore the area. There are vending machines for hot & cold drinks, 3 PCs for guests' use, a small convenience store selling food, drinks & souvenirs, a seating area (where breakfast is served & to chill), a hot/cold water dispenser & recycle bins on the ground floor. Outside the building, they have a big parking lot with lots of bay, so, no problem if you drive here. We had booked through Agoda & our rooms were without breakfast but were pleasantly surprised to find out that the management was extending complimentary breakfast to us anyway. I thought that was very nice, thank you!

There are lifts, so, no need to worry about having to lug your bag upstairs. The room was nice, still carrying the pops of colour here & there. The bathroom could've been a little cleaner (for a hotel) & it was odd having the sink in the room but this isn't the only hotel in Indonesia where we've found the sink in the room. Bed & pillow were comfy, there was a flat screen TV with cable, a small safe, complimentary bottles of water, towels & some basic toiletries.
Breakfast Indonesian - simple yet tasty. There was a choice of either Nasi Ijo (green rice) or Nasi Ayam Rica Rica (Rica Rica chicken rice?). I'd opted for the latter & it was yummy. However, there are lots of food stalls nearby if this isn't enough or you could walk to the nearby tradional market to get some snacks or just head to the lively Malioboro Street & be spoilt for choice. The hotel is within walking distance to Malioboro Street but it isn't like it's just round the corner either. It's still a 15-20minute walk away but if you don't fancy walking, you could always just take a bechak (trishaw) for a reasonable price.

Apart from the time we checked & getting some drinks from the convenience store, we didn't really have much interaction with the staff here, plus the place is pretty big. They were generally pleasant. Objectively speaking, overall, this is really quite nice place to stay at & the rates aren't too bad either, but personally, I'd say I'll KIV this place if I were to return to Yogyakarta.

Its a cheap hotel with good service, i spend 3 days there and it was very comfort and clean.
The location is in the city, so it was easy to go anywhere around Yogyakarta from this hotel.
Now iam planning to go to Bandung city, and planning to stay in POP Hotel again...

Room Tip: street view is great

In general it is a very good hotel for the price.

Rooms are small but relatively clean. The bathroom was not super-clean and possibly did not have proper ventilation. I found that I need to keep its door close or the smell and gas fills into the small room.

Hotel Staff are helpful and polite. The free breakfast provided is not good (low quality rice and small chicken bits + coffee) but it's free anyway.

The hotel is near to city center and it is easy to move around. However it is in a noisy and old part of the city (the noise did not come into the room though).

Dear Macdermat,

Thank you for your time to share your experience staying in POP! Hotel Sangaji Yogyakarta.
We apologize for any inconvenience happened during your stay. We will follow up the issue regarding the bath room ventilation to ensure that it will not be bring smell to the overall room space.

Free complimentary Quick bite is served every morning from 07.00 - 09.30, which bring the concept of local traditional breakfast of Javanese people, so at same time our guest can try the local breakfast culinary where the hotel located. We understand that is very simple quick bite but it will help our guest to have something in the morning before they start their busy day.

Once again, thank you for your review and input.
Looking forward to welcoming you again in POP! Hotels, in Yogyakarta, Bali, Bandung and Jakarta.

This is my second time stay at this nice hotel. The breakfast was still as it is, as per budget hotel. BUT, the location that is quite close to anywhere makes me wanna get back again. The room was clean and the air con was great cool. The WI-fi was also great at no cost. The staff was friendly, and the service was also quick.

Room Tip: try the second or third floor.

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.

Room Tip: If you need a quiter sleep, ask for a room NOT facing the main road

Price per night: RM88 (28usd

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room size was standard, not to small. Got the problem with bathroom glass door, not much privacy because the bathroom glass door is look a little transparent. You can see what person in the toilet doing.

The hotel is big and got many room. The laundry services, you need to go to the counter downstair (different company, they open their both at the ground floor). Nice smell everywhere especially in the lift. POP!, I always thought about lollypop.

To Malioboro, 15minutes walked, better using a trishaw (15k rupiah from the hotel). Hotel just next to the Tugu Jogja. In front of the hotel many food stall, and restaurant. Overall, this hotel is good for family with a low budget.
