We were travelling through java with our three children and arrived in Yogyakarta by train from jalerta. The hotel is a short cyclo ride from the station. It's a beautiful old colonial building that has been sympathetically extended. The feel of the hotel is one of luxury and we enjoyed our three nights very much. The breakfasts were excellent and varied. The hotel is not central but only a short walk or cyclo ride from the main attractions. We ate out at the local restaurants on an evening so did not sample the hotel food. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable, the service very good. There is lots to do in Yogyakarta and in hidnsight we would have spent another day or two here before moving on.
I would certainly stay here again.
PS The pool area is a little cramped in the evening when everyone returns from day trips.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
