Loved our stay here for four nights and whilst l could pick on some finer points like others have l wouldn't choose to go down that path.
Would have to say it was a great base to explore Yogyakarta for the first time. The staff seem to cope pretty well with the volume and needs of a very diverse cultural patronage.
In fact one of the charms was the cross cultural patronage of the hotel, got to engage with many people on different agendas from different countries inclusive of some locals.
The location is pretty central (actually wouldn't want to be any closer) and l couldn't find another hotel with a better option anyway.
Beautiful, elegant hotel and felt very at home.
Almost forgot to mention we went to the Sultan's Palace on a Saturday (around 1pm) and the Gamelan player's were absolutely amazing.
Ps. Actually if there was anything l would advise management about its please update your visitors brochure with more accurate info. i.e.: Sultan's Palace closes at 2.30pm ....
- 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.
