“Great location...functional hotel”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

The hotel is essentially a 3 star hotel; the main highlight is its great location; very near the main shopping street of Malioboro but tucked away in a road which was away from the traffic. Generally, the surrounding area is relatively quiet. The room was clean and functional; the main design flaw was the toilet which did not have a door to the screen. Therefore, the toilet was often wet. The bed was firm but the pillows were far too soft. It would have been good to have had an overhead light as the room could be a little dim. Service was attentive. The staff were cheerful, The breakfast was limited but presentable. There is a shallow pool at the top of the building which is more suitable for children. It would have been good if they had towels placed there so that people can take a bath at the showers next to the pool. In all, functional hotel but great location.

We had two separate booking in two different night. Arrived in late night around 12 midnight. The Front desk staff just found one booking and refused to search for the missing night. Informed to extend it in the next morning to describe the whole issues again in order to be proven for extension of stay and key card.

Next morning, when approached a lady at the counter and again she doesn't understand again! Until the manager Surya takeover; he is empower, make the efforts to look for the booking and analyse the issues. Finally an extension night was settled but he told us king is not available but we booked with booking.com already clearly indicated. Why not check?

Room is small but it is alright caused most day is out for sightseeing. Room comes with wifi, tea coffee facilities, basic toiletries and wide range of TV channel. However this room 219 having lots of ants along the dressing table and window.

Pool is on the level 6. Reasonable breakfast; lobby over decorated with porcelain vases and affected the whole atmosphere. Management to consider review and put some nice colour furniture to contra the theme. Do have a look the Ibis Styles lobby concept and definitely make a different. Overall, we would to thanks Surya to solve our night stay!

Location is acceptable walking distance to the Main Street, restaurants and railway station.

The hotel is located in Jalan Dagen, so close very close to Malioboro and the main attractions of Yogya. We paid about 425k (booked in advance), I now read here in a review that someone only paid 300k so for 300k it would be an even better deal for such a nice Hotel. Very clean, nice rooms, very good breakfast. I would come back!

On the day 1 they gave me room 110, they should not offer this room to the guest. The room is like a bunker or dungeon, no window in it. I think it should not be a room but they have space then they made as a room. This room is behind the elevator, seperate from other room. My suggestion, please ask another room if they give you this room.
The good things, they have friendly staff and good taste of breakfast, also the location is just near famous Malioboro street.

Actually the hotel just open around 1 month when I check in with my wife for our holiday in Yogyakarta. Can't believe that the room was nice with the very great price around 300k. Location just a minutes walk to the famous Malioboro Street and so easy to find a traditional culinary heaven surrounding. In the morning, the breakfast was good, a simple menu and choice but so inviting your appetite.
One that we didn't try just the swimming pool due it's not ready yet, hopefully when we come again it will be ready. I think will be nice since it'e located in the roof top of the building.

Room Tip: Front View would be better

Stayed there from 4th-7th October 2013. Very good service and efficient. Hotel smells really clean and good, fresh smelling air. I cant find anything that i'm dissatisfied with this hotel except one, the room service (pasta) that we order is way below our expectation. Other than that, its a very very good hotel. Price that we paid also very reasonable

first night at this hotel really made me regret has choosed this hotel for stay along my duty trip. hotel was brand new. smell of paint made you hard to breathe. when i asked for coffee powder in a bowl to make smell of room get better, the reception didnt give it but they changed my room. response of house keeping staff were slow. actually the room was good enough though for new hotel it seem little dirty. so many residual of glue surround window and along carpet in front of rooms. it show us that engineering and housekeeping dept are careless. its really made floor looks dirty. food for breakfast was standard, taste of food was average. but there are two person that i knew well and very helpful in that hotel. dewi rat a from sales dept. and surya from front office dept. you can count on them to help you with anything. the window can not be opened, so smell of smoke for smoking rooms can still be known. over all this hotel is suitable for person who likes traveling and sbopkng around And only need place for sleeping.
