Excellent accommodation in centre of Yogyakarta; service is excellent and rooms are great.
Prices for rooms are variable so shop around, as we got a superb deal via Accor hotels and could afford to upgrade to a suite, which was top notch
pros: location is perfect to visit Prabanan, Borobudur etc. They even arranged for a car at good rate (can negotiate) for the visits. Service is very good and they go out of the way to help. The pool is really neat, located in the middle of the courtyard. The breakfasts are superb, with local delicacies, western type (incl Egg counter etc) and local remedy drinks. The decoration is very nicely done both in the main areas and the rooms.
The suite rooms are really large and tasefully done, with superb bathrooms. You can choose which pillow types you want and the service is excellent and quick. They make a really good job of cleaning so it seems immaculate and the staff are genuinely friendly and not seeking gratuities.
The airport pick up is reasonably priced and worked for us smooth as silk. Their travel desk is honest and makes genuine suggestions as to what is best to do (even recommending us to book train tickets to Surabaya via a travel place to save money and pay with a CC).
Cons: the front of the hotel does not do the place justice, but enter and it is a different world from the hussle and bussle on the outside; accept the fact this is a Muslim country and so the calls to prayers are heard from 5 am...not much for the hotel to do about that.
I would recommend this hotel as one of the best in Java and would not hesitate one instant in going back. Frankly, find the best price by shopping around and don't hesitate to book this. You will not find better.

- This legenderay hotel was initially built as private estate in 1918. Through the ensuing decades, the property changed hands a number of times, until a Dutch caretaker turned it into Pensioner Hotel. The Phoenix name was deliberately chosen by the last proprietor who hoped that it would remain intact forever, believing in the ancient myth of The Phoenix, the sacred fire bird symbolizing regeneration throughout eternity.The Phoenix Hotel is elegantly situated in down town Yogyakarta, the cradle of Javanese civilization. The legendary Malioboro Street is just nearby, while the world herigate Borobudur and Prambanan temples are only an hour drive. Yogyakarta's cultural heritage and picturesque settings emit a distinctive charm that seldom fails its visitors.The 144 beautifully appointed rooms are reflecting the ambiance of bygone era wrapped in modern comfort facilities, enabling its occupant to celebrate a glorious past without losing the beauty of contemporary living. ... more less
