This is one of the places where the minute you come in you know you made a good choice. It concerns a small traditional Javanese hotel on the outskirts of Yogja with 11 nice decorated rooms and with very helpful and friendly English speaking staff doing everything to make you feel at home. Also they can arrange most of your trips for a fair price including cycling tours to Prambanan and Borobudur.
I had selected this hotel because of its location, price and positive reviews at Tripadvisor which I think they really deserve. Located north of Yogya this hotel offers a good base for all your trips in and around Yogja without being bothered with the traffic congestions of Yogja city. The hotel is located only 27 km from the Borobudur, 23km from the Prambanan Hindu Temple, 15 km from Yogya centre, 45 km from Parangtritis beach and 100 km from Dieng Plateau. See the location map attached.
The hotel is located in a quiet area and together with clean and comfortable beds they offer you the best conditions for a good sleep. One night we stayed in the Standard room and the second night we tried the Deluxe room because Standard was not available. They are different in price but both value for money. The Deluxe room offers you more space and a terrace next to the swimming pool where you can use your breakfast. On the table you will find a bell that you can use to draw the attention of the staff. There is no need to feel reluctant to use it because the staff likes to please the guests and comes with a big smile.
After a busy program this place is the right place to relax. Besides the swimming pool and a nice tropical garden they offer traditional Javanese oil massages and delicious meals in their restaurant.
One point of attention: If you would like to order a wake-up call mind that their wake-up system is not automated and set your own alarm as well. The boy who had a night shift at our day of departure simply forgot our wake-up call but fortunately it didn’t affect our program that day and also because he apologized with a humble and friendly smile it will not affect my final score for this place. Without hesitation I give 5 stars for this diamante and I would be happy if I get the chance to stay there again. Really good value for money and a place I can definitely recommend.
