I wish there was a rating category of 'good,' 3.5 stars, because three is too few but four is too many. The people at the front desk were very warm and friendly and we always enjoyed interacting with them, at all hours of the day. The grounds were lovely, the pool inviting, the landscaping was beautiful, and the room was average.
There were cobwebs in the corners of our room and it seemed a little tired; we had a room on the second floor facing the field behind, and our room had a small porch overlooking the pool. There was never too much noise from the pool, though perhaps the hotel wasn't full when we were there. But it was fine, cool enough AC, quiet enough (we were prepared for the morning call to prayers by the sweet girl at the front desk, who gave us earplugs), clean enough bathroom. Nothing really fancy, but just fine.
We only ate breakfast at the hotel and it was more of the same: fine enough, nothing special, but fine enough. The first morning I got the nasi goreng, and the remaining mornings I ate fruit and an omelette. It was fine.
We stayed a couple of nights and then drove to Solo where we'd planned to stay two nights, and then return to this hotel. They kept our luggage for us so we didn't have to haul it along. We were so unhappy with our hotel in Solo we decided to come back a day early, and the staff found us a room, even though they weren't expecting us until the following day.
All in all, we were left with a warm feeling about this little hotel. It's within walking distance from a range of restaurants, from low-key to fancy, and the staff were so kind. If we return to Yogyakarta, we would certainly consider staying there again.
