“What a joke”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is so far from Yogyas city center I don't understand why it was even listed under the city.
It was nearly impossible to get a taxi to the place because they had to stop to get directions. And being so far out from town and off of a highway you couldn't find a taxi to get INTO town.
Breakfast was....edible. We had to ask for coffee and hot water.
The "restaurant" is absolutely deserted. When we finally asked about it, we were given a menu but told only a few choices were actually available.
There is absolutely NO WHERE to eat working walking distance (unless you want to try and cross the 4 lanes of traffic). My sister and I went to bed without eating because there was literally no options.
Wifi is only available by the pool and lobby. The pool is pretty but there are no lounger chairs.
The rooms were pretty clean but the bathroom could have used a good scrub.
The staff barely spoke any English. I guess this place is also a "school for teaching English" but from what I could tell they just put people at the front desk and expected them to get by.
This place must be avoided.

Wisma Aji was the picture of a nice budget hotel. It is Javanese decorated and has unique building structures. Check in process needed to be improved, and the welcome drinks need to be consistent. We stayed three times at the hotel, yet we didn't always get the freshening drink. Rooms were spacious with large bathroom. However, the cleanliness was not really good. The water closet seemed unbrushed for long time. The shower space was slippery. One more thing we were really disappointed with the hotel was the poor TV channels. The channels were strange and uninteresting. The wifi connection was also terrible. We think it really needs improvement. Swimming pool was great and clean enough. The fried rice for breakfast was tasty enough, yet the poached eggs were what we call tasteless. This hotel is actually a good budget hotel, yet it needs improvements to make it the best budget and education--the way they call themselves-- hotel.

Room Tip: Choose rooms away from stairs, since the rooms near stairs will get really wet terrace when raining.
