Stayed here for a night on Deluxe Balcony room 726. The room itself is spacious and have lot of power plugs which is good for you gadget-freak, though you have to bring your own converter if your electronics not use Indonesian standard socket (German "Schuko" Type F). The bed is nice and I like the pillow so much. The view of balcony is very nice (pool and garden view).
As I mentioned on the tittle, the big plus of this hotel is the outdoor facility. It has child pool and adult pool (120 cm depth) which quite unique and nice for swimming. The garden is very nice with some mini "pendopo" scattered around the garden, birds sound (speaker), nice fish pond, and child playground, which really makes you relief to walk there after the breakfast or swimming session. The big "pendopo" next to hotel building also magnificent, really gave you the picture of Yogyakarta.
The food is so so, but they offered many kind of menu (Japanese, Chinese, European, Indonesian). And they gave us "gamelan" performance during our breakfast, really good Javanese Atmosphere.
Ambarrukmo Plaza which located next to this hotel also a big plus for buying some daily needs or watching the movie. I watched "How to Train Your Dragon 2" that time. LOL
When I stay there, I have a little bit problem with water heater, it's not work perfectly and don't like it. The door handle of balcony area in my room also need to be fixed I think, it's shaky.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel, once Yogyakarta's grandest hotel, has been undergoing a great transformation to bring back the glamour of the past merged with 21st century technology that embraces both its historic heritage and the modern comforts. In addition to its historic grandeur, the hotel is also preferred due to its central location with the city’s largest shopping mall right on the doorstep and the hotel is an integral part of the heritage site of Royal Palace Residence. It is less than 10 minutes from Adisucipto International Airport, and most of Yogyakarta's must-see sites – the Prambanan Temple, Sultan Palace, Kotagede, Malioboro – are a short drive away. ... more less
