I booked this hotel based on the reviews online. Today is my last day here and it has impressed me more than many hotels. The big pluses are the palpable amiable staff's hospitability, the more than comfortable rooms with impressive amenities (eg toiletries, multiadaptable sockets, interactive TV, mattress, cleanliness), a pot pouri of different continent breakfast and lovely swimming pool and gym. My wife wanted to use the spa today and the receptionist was more than happy to let us check out an hour late.
Some of the reviewers were perhaps unkind saying the hotel is surrounded by slumps. The socioeconomic divide may be obvious but this hotel has created the much needed jobs here. I walked around an evening until 730pm and had some hawker food. I saw the abject poverty which is rife in certain area but the people are friendly and approachable. I have little issue staying in this hotel again. I rented a driver and car for 12 hours yesterday (for 500k rupiah) and visited Borobudor,Merapi and Prambanan. Finished off at Malioboro Street. I don't think many people stay in Jogya just to visit the city so staying in a less that affluent area is certainly not an issue for me.
I travel frequently around the world and IMHO for the so called bang for your bucks, this hotel gets both thumbs up from me.
