Reviewed June 2, 2014

This is my first family trip to Yogjakarta. We booked two rooms and were perfectly satisfied with it. The breakfast has a vast variety of choices and we just loved it. We were really impressed with the hospitality of the hotel staff which i think is the common feature among a a lot of the South East Asians. The location is very near to the local market area and a shopping complex is just nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the swimming pool is the best.

Do NOT be mislead by the airport transfer service offered by the hotel. You WILL be charged for this. This is NOT a complimentary service. The transport for 5 people will not accomodate baggage as the space in the rear of van is very small and you will have to pay for a taxi to take your luggage.... in other words be prepared to pay DOUBLE for your journey from airport to hotel if you use this hotel's airport shuttle service !!!

It was one of the oldest hotel around malioboro area, but it was still well maintained. The room was spacious with the view of city and merapi, or the pool. I dont recommend the city/merapi view since it faced the main street and can become quite noisy at nights, especially on weekends or peak season.

Other than that, it was a good experience staying there.

Stayed here for 4 nights and Melia Purosani live up to its expectation being a renowned Spanish chain of hotel which provide excellent facilities and services. The staff members and management team of the hotel is attentive with good command in the english language. A wide range of f&b outlets which is cosy and the food is delicious. Added on advantage for those who books through the official website melia.com will enjoy max USD20 per night which can be use to offset your dining charges or to use it for the YHI spa for those who wish to pamper themself with the many choice of spa packages offered. The hotel location is certainly a jewel in the city of Jogja with Malioboro street being just around the corner. A special thanks to all management team and staff especially Ms Upik, Mr Bangum, Ms Heni, Mr Dono, Mr Norman and Mr Gilberto for the wonderful stay in Melia Purosani and will certainly return back to this beautiful hotel.

I chose this hotel primarily because of its location. We booked 2 rooms and after a lengthy check in process due to language issues (poor English) but finally went up to our rooms (same floor but opposite wings) to discover carpets that should have been replaced several years ago. Badly stained throughout. This was the case in both rooms. I did not want to walk on them barefoot. The bathroom also could use an upgrade. Very poor lighting. The only salvation was that we did get a very good deal in booking online with a $40 per room credit. We did not spend much time in our rooms during the day. Most of the staff seemed to be very friendly, but sorely lacking in any English language skills. Perhaps they don't get many English speaking tourists here? There are some newer hotels that are further out that may be a better alternative until they can upgrade rooms here, I would probably recommend staying elsewhere.

Best experience with friendly and efficient staff. The location is near the Malioboro Area. Tricycle driver is just outside the hotel to malioboro area 10000idr. Check in free welcome drink,10mins massage, free breakfast and free wifi. The room was clean, other than the sink was a bit dirty and some stains on the carpet. The bed was super comfortable and the room very spacious. We love the friendly staffs. They are very polite and always smiling. This receptionist Ms. Mita, she indeed got my vote for the best employee of the month/year. Wished we stayed longer, will be back....

I stayed at Melia Purosani Hotel during my conference trip to Jogjakarta. I stayed at Junior Suite (Room 635) which was at the sixth floor. The room has two level inside. Level one is a living room and a toilet. The second level is the bedroom, closet, toilet with separate shower and bathtub, and an open space verandah (open verandah is only at room 635). The bed is comfy and the view is amazing. You will see directly into Mt. Merapi at dawn while the air is still clear without sunshine and pollution. The setting of room is good and you got a lot spaces available. Private butler service is available but not round the clock. This hotel is big, the tropical garden and moderate size swimming pool is a bonus. I like the garden inside the hotel as it is a place to relax or lazily laying down if you are not interested to go for shopping. Again, the location is superb. 5 minutes walk to the famous Malioboro street. The Keraton or sultan palace is just 15 minutes walk from hotel. The hotel is located at the corner between Jalan Suryatmajan and Suryotomo street. The traffic is moderate and not noisy. The hotel is about 30 minutes from the airport. The breakfast area is located at ground floor and facing the garden. The spread of breakfast is adequate, traditional Indonesia food, western food and dim sum. The bar lounge is at the other side and they have three shops outlets in the lobby corridor. Absolutely this hotel is a gem in the busy city center of Djogjakarta

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the tropical garden if you don't like to see the traffic or noise.
