It is definitely the best hotel in Yogyakarta - and I haven't seen not too much hotels with an atmosphere in a world. It's sometimes feeling like a colonial palace - primarily due to of wooden arts on a walls, nice furniture and service. It even smells good, with all that oriental aromas than makes every Asian travel so perfect.
By the way, internal patio is perfect to have a dinner - if you are ready to pay twice from any restaurant in a city. Food is good, although, and there is a not so bad selection of wines.
Other drawback is location - it's not too close to a city center, but there are a lot of tuk-tuks and taxis, so it's not a problem at all.
Anyway, atmosphere made this hotel an obvious choice.
