If u have money to spare, and u like to experience 'old jogja' this is where you should stay.

First of all, the hotel is not cheap... there are plenty other clean, good location, nice hotels half the price of Phoenix. But if you want to splurge, enjoy your breakfast (they serve endless option) and experience old colonial jogja - full marble bath and all, Phoenix is the best.

When booking for rooms, don't forget to ask to stay in the original building (front area) the back area is the newer replica from the 90s, plus it's a bit far to walk to the back.

Breakfast, room service, dinner,,, everything is just excellent, and acrross the street from the restaurant there's a convenient store, and Tiga Nyonya restaurant which serve and excellent dish.

Room Tip: Ask for the front building, the original antique

Very good hotel. Great ambiance. Wonderful interior. Staff is trained really well. On the negative side: street noise in the rooms that are closest to the street. I stayed in room 203 the first night and really couldn't sleep because of the noise. They transfered me to a room in the back the next night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back of the hotel. Front rooms suffer from street noise.

A great restoration of this lovely old building. Close to the main attractions - Malioboro, Keraton etc. The hustle of the main road is completely forgotten as soon as you step into the buildilng.
The rooms were beyond comfortable - just amazing. The pool is another oasis from the heat of Yoyga. It is enclosed in a courtyard, so doesn't get sun all day. But this keeps it cooler.

The hotel has it's own becak's right outside the door if you feel like it, alternately you can walk to Mailboro in 15 mins. Also you can get to the airport and Prambanan easily.

The restaurant mainly has western food, though some local dishes.
It's the breakfast buffet that is spectacular! You could spend hours and hours grazing through the different dishes.

There is also a spa but we didn't use it.

Room Tip: Most rooms are back from the main road.

stayed 3 nights in october and paid about 720,000/night through a hotel booking site ...... beautiful colonial style hotel decorated with old furniture, fabrics, vases and another collectibles from the "old days" ............ room was spacious and clean and the shower was great with plenty of pressure ....... swimming pool a great relief during the hot day and staff were all friendly and helpful

one tip - buy the buffet breakfast vouchers from reception for 91,000 each ...... great value with european and indonesian food and capuccinos brought to you by the friendly staff ...... you can fill yourself up for the day on it

great hotel and experience

This hotel has everything right, and it is real good value for money. Room is big and clean, the hotel looks like a museum, with beautiful restaurant in the patio and beautiful swimming pool. The staff is extremely careful, never have such a level of service ever. The breakfast is an experience in itself: local food from indonesia, yogya, chinese, indian, plus the usual continental breakfast and american, but all brought to a superieur level. For the yogya food there is a nice lady who explains how is it made, and also prepare healthy traditional drink from herbs that you can buy and bring home. Worth going to yogya just to stay at this hotel.

The legendary Malioboro Street is just nearby, while the world herigate Borobudur and Prambanan temples are only an hour drive.
