“Perfect location, clean room and helpful staff”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

I stayed here for a night just yesterday with my husband, location was great on the best part of Yogya (the Malioboro) next to tugu train station.

We went to Yogyakarta from Jakarta by train, Senja Utama (no AC, Rp250,000 or USD24/high season rate, depart Senen, Jakarta at 0830pm, arrive Tugu, Yogya at 5am). We called hotel the day before to inquire about a very early check in (at 5am). They allow early check ins, but only if your room is cleaned and ready. We said to the reception, after hours and hours of travel, it's the next best thing to having a shower, so we really need this early check in. So he said, we will try our best to accommodate your request, but make no guarantees:( Aaargh!. The staff then offered us to use employee's bathroom if we can't get our early check in. What a friendly family service, we really appreciate it.

We arrived in Yogyakarta at 5am, since we have no other place to go, we headed for a hotel (we rode becak = Rp10,000). To our surprise, the check-in went smoothly, no need to wait and no extra charge!.

Actually all went well with the hotel. The room was neat and clean and the space was just enough. Much better than we had expected.

Minus points are:
1. the shower (it will take about sometime for the upper element to heat it's water),
2. buffet style breakfast (limited food selection, it only included Indonesian breakfast menu (steam rice, nasi goreng, 2 proteins and 1 veg), chicken porridge, fruit platters, instant coffee dispenser (nescafe)/tea/juice/water. No selection of bread.)
3. the indoor pool was SO small.

Tips:
- From the hotel you can actually walk to the train station. Head to Gang Sosrowijayan wetan (Next to malioboro mart/convenience store), at the end of the gang you turn left until you find abadi hotel yogyakarta, the train station is right in the front of the Abadi hotel.
- From the tugu station, find your way to abadi hotel, turn left until you find the second turn/GANG (Second GANG, gang nomor dua).
- From/to airport/SOLO: airport is only 10 minutes from Tugu train station. Prambanan Ekspres (Prameks) trains runs around 10 times daily between Yogya and Solo. This train is a good option for a day trip to Solo from Yogya or Yogya from Solo. Estimated travel time to Solo is an hour. Rp10,000 per way.

This place is pretty flash looking from the road and measures up okay when you get inside with small but tidy rooms and a small but nice pool right in the middle.
They offer free Wifi internet but it does not work in all rooms so you have to go downstairs where there is complete coverage.
Buffet breakfast is included in the room rate but all the food is local Indonesian cuisine so if you want a western style breakfast forget it.
The location of the hotel is a big plus as it is within walking distance of the railway station and only about 2 mintues off the main shopping area of Malioboro which also has the main route for the local bus service.
So overall this place is more than acceptable but if you are a foreigner you may feel a little out of place at times as it definitely is more aimed at locals than tourists.

Seemed brand new when we three couples from South Africa stayed there in Sept 2009 - IMMACULATE. Superb value, small but adequate rooms, best showers we had in Bali-Java. We were the only westerners there so breakfast was so-so, but they tried! Bedrooms are all situated around a small paved atrium/courtyard with a pristine swimming-pool. The passage walkways surrounding this central swimming pool court-yard (and the stair wells ) are hung with oil paintings and there are two carved chairs and table outside each bedroom. The position is ideal on Sosrowijayan, directly opposite Gang 1, a quaint narrow alley with tiny shops, accommodation and Superman Restaurant where one night a blind musician played (as usual we were the only westerners). Within easy walking distance, in Malioboro (with all its motor cycles and becak taxis), is Beringhardjo indoor market, packed with locals. Across the road from there is Mirato Batik where you can shop in comfort. Above that we made a gem of a discovery - the rooftop restaurant.... elevated private "pavillions" where we could even get beer!

Room Tip: Swimming pool is right outside ground floor rooms
