“Okay for 1 night only...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Stayed here for 1 night after 2 nights of wonderful stay at the Sheraton. The hotel was definitely in need of a major renovation. The lobby looked old, imagine a hotel's lobby in the 90's and there you got it. Rooms were basic and a little bit humid. It took me an hour to make the aircon worked to a temperature that I wanted. However, its location was in the city center and very close to Malioboro, a famous market street in Jogja. The food was okay and nothing great to share...

We stayed in this hotel from 17-12-2012 to 19-12-2012.The hotel has a very nice layout.Checking-in took some time as I've booked the hotel thru Asiatravel.I've requested for single king size bed but was reserved only twin single bed.With the courtesy of the reception staff,we managed to get a single king sized bed but facing the roof top of the opposite bldg.The room was spacious enough for childrens to play.Happy checking into the room,But the toilet concept is unacceptable coz it does not have a spray for washing and after using the toilet , had to go to the shower room for washing.Which is rediculuos.The buffet b/f was good with western and local dish (had to pay Rp49 500 for each childrenX2).Nothing much to comment.Next day requested for room change and was given a room at 5th level(room 538).O.K. facing the swimming pool with open view.The room was big and spacious too.Good.Still it does not have a spray for washing and had to be done at the shower room.Bath tub does not have a hot water.Staffs are very polite.The minus point is that we made transport arrangements from the hotel to the airport (confirmed by the hotels guest relations staff).We were told the price is Rp90 000 and made a booking.Upon settling the bill,we checked out without checking the charges on the bill.Reached the airport,we paid the driver Rp110 000(Rp90 000for the transport and Rp20 000 to the driver as tips).The driver or the hotel staff did not tell us that the transport fare has been charged to the bill but the driver accepted the cash and went off.Upon reaching Singapore we checked that Rp90 000 has been charged to our bill,meaning I paid twice for the transport fare.Feeling being cheated and dishonesty by the driver, I email to the hotels management.Still waiting for thier reply.Overall the hotel was good.

Room Tip: Be more specific on the room bed size,which level do you require,facing open view or pool view,inter...

The surrounds for this hotel are very noisy, with no double/triple glazing to the windows. Stayed in room 245, directly opposite the speakers for the local Mosque, with calls to prayer commencing at 0400. Loud road noise continues until about midnight, affording a very short window for good sleep.
Buffet breakfast good.
Slow checkout.

Room Tip: avoid being on the road side, and avoid room 245 and surrounding rooms

I stayed at this hotel during my business trip to Jogya.
Yes, the room looked a little worn out with no LCD TV and old looking bath tub, but the courtesy of the hotel and restaurant staff compensated for everything. The morning buffet and dinner were good with both western and traditional local dishes. The pool and the garden area added the niceness to the hotel atmosphere.

The only annoying thing that happened during the stay was that there were some VIP guests staying at the time and when I was taking a walk in the garden the security staff (maybe not of the hotel) inquired me where I came from, which room I was staying in and my name.

Room Tip: The garden view rooms might be the better option for getting quiet sleep.

It is located a walk away from the heart of Yogyakarta - Malioboro, but still in a quite environment. Suitable for either business traveling or family vacation.
If you travel with your family with two young adults, do choose the Grand Room. Provide enough space for the four of you.
They do generally have live music at their Bar on weekends.

Stayed 3 nights on a short visit to Jogjakarta.

First and formost is the hotel's great location. The main JL. Marlioboro street market etc. is a short work away.

We had a "Grand" double room which was spacious, clean and well appointed.

Good breakfasts but beware the high costs of drinks in the bar. Get your supply of beer from the local supermarket.

Recommended for short stays only
