“smart budget hotel”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

good things :
- strategic location, near to UGM, taxis are everywhere, there is a trans jogja shelter but it is quite far from the hotel but still reachable by walking
- food stalls are everywhere and have so much of selection
- mini markets are near too, the hotel also has urgent convenience store beside the lobby
- the room was superB! very clean, the linen and the bathroom were very clean too
- room rate is very very reasonable for that kind of room

this and that :
- i don't think they accept online booking, you can only make a reservation by phone or by walk in to the hotel, if you make a reservation by phone, they will ask you to pay first through bank transfer
- upon your arrival and processing your check in, they will ask you to pay IDR200,000 per room for deposit, it will be yours again after check out
- they don't provide you towels, soap, shampoo, and toothbrush for free. if you didn't bring your amenities, they rent the towel for IDR5,000 and sell the amenities for IDR7,500
- internet connection is provided by cable, and in the lobby you can find many computers for you to rent

overall, this is what i call smart budget hotel.

Budget hotel located at Gejayan Street (one of Yogyakarta's main street). If you are looking for a hotel near the Keraton, this place is about 30 minutes away from there and cost around Rp35000 by taxi.
Overall, this hotel is a very clean hotel equipped with free internet access in the room (using cable, not wifi). You have to buy your own toilet equipment such as soap, shampoo and towel. However, those are around Rp5000 each (inexpensive). Considering its price and location, this is a highly recommended hotel for those who seek a place to sleep with super clean room.
For room selection, please select rooms on the level 2 or above (do not choose rooms that are on level 1 due to celullar phone signal poor reception on that level).

I stayed here for 2 days. The hotel located in gejayan, so its easy to reach.

Things that you should know that you need to pay to reserve the room, you need to pay one night price deposit when you check in. Also they don't provide breakfast and they don't have restaurant. But the store sells some instant noodle and drinks and you can easily find restaurant around hotel (there's gudeg across the street if you're looking for breakfast)
They don't provide free toiletries, but they have something that you can buy. You can rent towels for a very cheap price.

Im quite happy with this hotel.

I love it! For a budget hotel, Citihub Gejayan Yogyakarta exceeds my expectation. Similar like the other Citihubs in Indonesia, it has Urgent convenience store at front. But it has a comfortable lobby and breakfast area while none other citihubs have. Of course, breakfast is served in stereofoam box upon your request only. It is not included in the fare.
The room I stayed in was slightly smaller than the ones i stayed in the other citihubs. But the hotel has just opened so the interior and all are still brand new minimalist clean and great. Very satisfying value for me since it was only IDR 275.000 per night. Amenities top-up available for only IDR 15.000 while towel is IDR. 7.500.

This hotel is situated at prime location on one of Yogyakarta's main road. Only 50 meters away from the southern ring road if you plan to visit Borobudur temple. The temple is about 45 minutes drive from the hotel, 30 minutes away from the airport, 20 minutes to Keraton Yogyakarta, and 30 minutes from Prambanan temple. Very wise choice if you want to dodge all the traffic jam.

Basement parking lot is available too, so you won't have any problem if you rent a car. Discount bookstore Togamas is just across the hotel. Cheap food stalls are all over Gejayan road so you shouldn't be worried for food!

Very good value for money! A very clean and neat hotel suitable for business or just a short stay. It also includes a convenience store. It's located on a busy street, but inside the hotel you won't find anything of the busy traffic in Yogyakarta. Free reliable internet with cable, somehow Wifi didn't work for me. For the price I would say it's a small gem inside the busy roads of Yogyakarta.

Downside: I couldn't make any reservation and had to go to the hotel in order to confirm my reservation by making a deposit. The citihubhotel website is not functional. When I wanted to extend my stay I had to pay straight away and couldn't pay a few hours later.

As it's a budget hotel you have to pay a very small fee if you want to make use of the towels.
I recommend this place if you want value for your money, cleanliness.
