“Nice Hotel Convenient Location”
Reviewed July 8, 2011

Very pleasant hotel nice facilities, good breakfast buffet for the price, the room was also very comfortable and since I was lucky to be upgraded to 'the level' it came with free internet. Could really find nothing to fault the hotel.

Room Tip: if you can get a room on 'The Level' its worth it.

Melia is definitely a hidden gem in the bustling Jogjakarta. The lush green pool makes me feel I am not in Jogjakarta. It is very close to Malioboro street. There is a big supermarket just next door ( I'm traveling with children and parents...one bag filled with baby toiletries was left behind...the supermarket next door really saved us.)

We stayed for couple of nights in the last week of Dec 2010 with my extended family, we booked 3 rooms. Excellent location as you can walk to main shopping street, Malioboro Street and Beringharjo Market. Service was good, but couldn't help notice that there were stains on the carpets in the rooms and in outdated TVs and other furnitures. They clean the rooms and bathrooms, but we still feel that the place is due for major refurbishments.

One of the bedroom was facing the street and we could hear the noise from the street, luckily it was not a main street.

Breakfast was initially good, but expected the food quality more as it is 5 star hotel. Used the swimming pool with the kids, they were OK. The pool was full of people as we stayed during holiday period. Will be probably stay at different hotel for the same price, unless the ladies insist to stay close to Malioboro for shopping experience.

I have stayed at the Melia 3 times previously. I have also stayed at Grand Hyatt and the Novotel.

The Melia isn't the flashest hotel but it wins for location on Malioboro in the heart of Yogya. You can walk to the shopping street and other attractions without needing to negotiate taxi's or other forms of transport.

The hotel is quite old but is large, has a great internal garden pool area and a couple of restaurants and bar. The Chinese restaurant is pretty good and the buffet/al-a-carte is OK reasonable meals nothing flash but perfectly acceptable.

Rooms are a bit old and showing cigarette burns and stains but clean.

If you want a reasonably priced hotel in good location for heart of town take this hotel. I still use it to show visitors Yogyakarta.

You can feel right away that you are in for a treat. The beautiful lobby with grand piano. Beautiful landscape, very clean room, polite and no-nonsense services. Walkable to the night market.

The Melia is a great hotel. The room I had was of a good size with a kingsize bed. I don't think it was one of the recently renovated ones but it was still very adequate. Also it came complete with a nice city view and as this was my first time in Jogja it gave me a real feel for the place, watching the world go by. The Melia is well located and you can get to Malioboro and the Kraton very easily.

The hotel pool is a real winner. It is a lagoon style outdoor pool and as you relax in the water it is easy to imagine you are miles from anywhere and not in the middle of a large city. There is also a spa, sauna and fitness centre available but I never saw the inside of any of them.

Breakfast is superb. Huge choice to delight both Asian and Western diners and absolutely delicious. I also visited the Ching San Chinese Restaurant in the hotel for dinner. It too did not disappoint. It was really good. Great food and outstanding service.

The pool and culinary options alone make this hotel worth a visit. Add to that the quality of the rooms and the quality of the staff and it is a real winner.

Didn't expect such a roomy room for the price paid. The housekeeping and reception service were excellent. Staff was friendly & helpful in assisting the guests regardless of early in the morning, 4am departure or at night.

I had to leave early in the morning 4am for a flight back and the hotel is very kind to prepare breakfast box for take-away. They also helped to call for taxi service and morning call so that I'll not be late for my flight.

I left something behind and only realized it when I was back home. I sent an e-mail to request them to help to send back the item to me and it was arranged timely. Thank you Melia for the great service especially to the housekeeping.
