“Fine but dont book through Agoda”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

This hotel is clean, convenient to Univ GajaMada and has decent rooms. HOWEVER! DO NOT BOOK THROUGH AGODA, where my web search took me automatically - call and book directly. the actual hotel charges are very reasonable, even cheap, but AGODA charges more than double. I only realised this after I had checked in and paid - a phone conversation with a very accommodating manager finally reimburse me 50% of what I was charged, still more than the costs had i booked directly, but I am sure AGODA rips off the hotel as well as the client.
Botton linie - the Wisma is fine - a good place to stay at very reasonable rates but avoid AGODA booking at all costs!! Jon Rohde, MD (US citizen - but resident of So Africa and formerly resident of Yogyakarta)

Room Tip: ask to have the mountain side rooms - away from the main road Jalan Colombo

Wisma MMUGM located at Colombo street near Gadjah Mada University. I stayed there for 3D2N. It is good for sleep because I didn't stay long here, I mean I came back to hotel at night then I went to sleep and I left at early morning. In my opinion, this hotel is for people who like to go out all day long so hotel just for take a rest. Beds were comfortable, toilet was clean with complete showering utilities. Room rates are included breakfast set, recommended place for people who wants to stay in comfy hotel with reasonable price :)

This is our favorites hotel when in Jogja. First reason is close to UGM where our son study there. Second parking is sufficient for persons whom used private car (like us). Third lobby is large & relaxing. Fourth the room is spacious with large windows.

For us, this is our favorites!

This is a fairly basic hotel which biggest plus is its proximity to Gadjah Mada University. I stayed there for 4 nights and my room was clean but also showed some wear and tear, especially in the bathroom. Breakfast was ok too, but I think they could put a bit more effort into it.

Room Tip: When booking ask for a room with Mt Merapi view.

I think I've been quite unlucky but my experience here has been the worst ever. Ants in the bathroom, louder air conditioning, strange insects behind the curtain, that's how my night there has been sleepless.
Breakfast isn't tasty and is served in a buffet mode, with a small choice of local foods only.
Its location is also not so convenient: a taxi is required to reach the downtown.

Room Tip: Refuse ground floor rooms! Maybe you'll avoid ants.

Our one-nigh stay was pleasant enough. The staff were kind and helpful, the bedroom and furnishings were good quality, the shower and air conditioning worked. My teenage daughter had a nice gado-gado for her evening meal, freshly prepared vegetables, tempe and tofu, but the sauce was too hot for her.

The choice for breakfast was alright, juices, fresh fruit, rice, noodle, bread, pastry, and an egg station. The standard was fine for an establishment which is essentially a university business school accommodation, so if you're not expecting a four-star hotel, this is a more than adequate place to stay.

this hotel have good staff. except the security. I thing the security in this hotel must be train again, cause they are really not friendly to guest. the room is also small. if you are looking for friendly staff, good location, and large room, don't stay here. but not a bad hotel to stay. especially if you have plan to study in Gadjah Mada University.
