Me and my wife stayed at this hotel during our visit to Jogjakarta city and temples around.
The hotel prooved to have very pleasant and clean rooms, a nice pool and a touch of colonial times environment.
The staff was also always helpful and friendly.
The only downside we experienced was an high WiFi internet rate (they asked us for 50,000Rp - about 4.00€ or $5US for 2-hour access). In a country where we found free WiFi everywhere, from bars to cafes and hotels, this rate was difficult to understand...

This hotel's main clientele is large tour groups, which stay for one or two nights, and Indonesian businessmen. The location is near a few universities, but not near any commercial area of interest to tourists or any of the tourist sites in the region. Taxis are cheap and fairly plentiful, so you can get to wherever you want -- but not by foot.

Staff are friendly and try to be helpful, but quality control seems to be lacking. Internet access in guest rooms is often problematic. When there are large tour groups, the restaurant staff is unable to keep the breakfast buffet stocked. The kitchen regularly runs out of or forgets to put out condiments that are daily staples. Our shower drain could not handle the water from a normal shower, so we had to turn off the water frequently during showering. One of the electrical sockets in our room did not work.

The breakfast buffet is large, but oriented toward a local clientele; most foods contain sugar, and chocolate sprinkles are popular. For lunch and dinner, Nana Mia Pizzeria, a short walk from the hotel, seems to be the best nearby option. It is actually quite good for pizza and salad, and attractively priced, though it is more expensive than most local eating places ("warungs").

Exercise facilities are great. There is a large, pleasant outdoor swimming pool and a new gym with modern equipment. The pool is significantly less pleasant than it would otherwise be because the patio area is full of bird droppings -- on the patio, reclining chairs, and even the tables.

Rooms are comfortable, and have large TVs with a good range of channels.

Service and Experienced

This is a long overdue review, but we really want to express our wonderful stay in the Jogjakarta Plaza Hotel.

The main reason we always choose and stay for a long period in this hotel is the people. This hotel has excellent service and very friendly staff--very genuine. We live and travel all over the world and it’s very rare to find this kind of hospitality. It's always nice to be home in Jogjakarta, to speak our language, and to spend time with nice people.

Besides the service, and the location, the facilities and cleanliness are also beyond expectations. It's an amazing place for our daughter to learn and to experience Indonesian culture, people, and have a great vacation.

We have been staying at the Jogjakarta Plaza hotel a number of times, and I must say that each time we have stayed there it has been a new and refreshing experience!!! The hotel has one of the best staff we have ever seen, friendly, welcoming, helpful, and very polite. On a number of occasions while dining in the restaurant, we have had a number of great conversations, with the waiters and waitresses that were all smiles. The service in this hotel is definitely worth 5 stars.
The Room

We’ve been staying in different rooms while visiting Jogjakarta including the new ones. During our last vacation, we stayed in the Executive Suite Room 122 for 10 nights (July 20 to August 5, 2012) and it was wonderful. We had no problems with our room during our stay and all I can say is that it was very comfortable. The room was very spacious consisting of a large living room with one big flat screen TV, a bedroom with a wonderful view of the pool plus another big flat screen TV, and a huge bathroom with a bath and a very nice shower. The most important thing for us is that the room not only has good amenities, but it is also very quiet. We were able to rest in the room and read books in the living room. In the bedroom, our daughter would lounge on the bed while watching movies. It’s perfect! We had to drag our daughter out of the room just to go somewhere!

The Location

One of the reasons we always choose this hotel for a long vacation is the location. From the hotel, it’s very easy to tour Borobudur, Romo Mangunwijaya’s famous architectures, Affandi, and other museums. We also visited the Gadjah Mada and other universities, and had time to shop for nice batiks in Malioboro. Close by we were able to see quaint, little, bookstores, interesting gift shops in Ambarukmo Plaza Mall, and several other malls. Or you are even able to buy gifts in the traditional central markets around Jogjakarta. This hotel is also within reasonable distance from very yummy, clean, and cheap Indonesian food restaurants such as Nasi Gudeg, Padang food, etc… We are also able to drive to the Jogjakarta Airport without getting stuck in traffic!

The Amenities

There is no question that this hotel has an excellent sport facility. The swimming pool is our favorite place to relax, it has a rectangular design, and is big enough for many people to swim in, and long enough to do laps. We like to swim in the morning, which is when the pool is empty, and is very quiet. We also like to use the gym, the basketball court and the Spa. The Spa, for a person who wants to get away from it all, has many different massages, body scrubs, and of course cream baths to choose from. (My recommendation is the cream bath!)

Our favorite place is sitting in the lobby which is comfortable, and relaxing. It’s nice to be able to sit in the restaurant and see the view of the very Javanese lobby. It’s just beautiful and it makes us feel at home.

This hotel has character, and is also perfect for us. We like the fact that the guests are mixed with both foreigners and locals. It is very interesting because this hotel hosts a majority of people from all over the world.

The Food

The food in the hotel is also very yummy! The breakfast buffet was something to look forward to every morning which included Western style foods, but also a lot of great Indonesian delicacies with healthy choices! It also had a wide range of bread, and desserts, and a great amount of fresh fruits.

Liked Best

People, non-smoking room, breakfast, swimming pool, Lobby--very homey, indoor anad outdoor sport and recreation facilities, Gym area and price.

Liked Least

When we had to leave. It was very hard to say goodbye.

Room tip: Suittes room is large, bright and quiet.

I was on vacation with my family and my brother's family for 3 nights. Good price if we compared with other similar hotels. The room was clean and nice, so is the bathroom. Hotel facilities also complete and in good condition. There were live gamelan and music in lobby. Tennis court and for Rp. 20.000 you can rent a can of balls. There was free drop service to Malioboro at 10 am and 1 pm. Spa and massage are quite expensive and too short for the price offered. I love nasi goreng selimut in this hotel, also soto betawi even though for 4 days stay only once served at breakfast.
Unfortunately when we returned from a day's sightseeing, no massage service over 10 pm. Likewise with our car dirty unwashed for 4 days. I think the hotel should be able to figure this out.
Overall I would recommend this hotel and will stay again someday.

Room tip: The west side facing the street, east side facing tennis court and gym, middle side facing pool.

I've visited Yogyakarta several times, and Jogjakarta Plaza Hotel always be my first choice hotel to stay, because the room is large and clean and very friendly staff. Unfortunately there is no swimming pool for children. other than that it's a very recommended hotel.
