The fascination of this hotel is the extraordinary uniforms that the staffs adorned which is just captivating. Not to mentioned the beautiful waterfall at the driveway.
Do not missed the monument of Yogyakarta or Tugu Jogja which has becomes the landmark that is closely linked to Yogyakarta. It is located about 500 metres down the road from the hotel.
Tugu Jogja is the most popular landmark of Yogyakarta. This monument is located right in the center of the crossroad between the Mangkubumi, Soedirman, A.M. Sangaji and Diponegoro roads. The Tugu Jogja that is almost 3 centuries old has a very deep meaning and it keeps some history records of Yogyakarta.
According to my tour guide there is a tradition here which is to hug and kiss this monument after finishing the study in a university...frankly I could not verify if that is the truth.
