Whenever you are in Yogyakarta, you should try staying at Phoenix Hotel. Starting from entering into the hotel, walking down the halls and staying at the room you would find a different ambiance, like we were taking back to 1900's Javanese era. I thought at first the hotel will be spooky considering that it was built in 1918, but the renovation and the current ambiance are far from spooky. We were given a room with a pool view, the room itself is not that big but it's very comfortable with Javanese architecture atmosphere. The breakfast are superb with a traditional Javanese food with a touch of Dutch colonial menu. The hotel location is not that far from Malioboro about 1 KM but the hotel provided you with a becak in front of the hotel for about 25K rupiah one way. The hotel service is also top notch, no flaw at all from the reception, housekeeping and restaurant staff. I was there last December with my family and my 10 year old daughter are so impressed with the hotel that she wanted to go back there immediately after we arrived at our home. Highly recommended to stay in this hotel considering that the price is also quite cheap if you book it through Mercure chain internet.

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