I chose the Ibis Yogyakarta Malioboro based on reviews based on my good experiences with the Ibis hotel chain and the Accor group of hotels. Ibis Yogyakarta is also another good hotel in a very convenient location located right on Malioboro and next to the Malioboro mall.
The staff are very helpful making sure everything is okay with your room. They always checked to see if I had enough water bottles in my room. That was awesome.
My room was okay but with a poor view of Yogyakarta. I recommend asking for a room with a view. My only complaint was that I needed to turn on the hot water for 5 minutes before I could get any hot water. Not a problem if you are not in a hurry, I was on the day I complained about it to the staff. There also is not a safe deposit box in your room, they only have it at the front desk. This is something I like see added in the future.
For the positives, Ibis Yogyakarta has a great breakfast and dinner buffet. I got fed up with the popular restaurants being full so I opted to eat just at Ibis. It was more convenient.
For those flying out of Yogyakarta, just give yourself 30 minutes to get to the airport. Ibis will arrange a taxi but it took use just 15 minutes in the morning to there. I would say 30 minutes if a traffic jam.
If you come by train, you do not need a taxi. Ibis is just a 5 minute walk if you do not have much luggage. The street is busy so be forewarned.
Take caution on Malioboro street, they know which customers stay at Ibis Yogyakarta. They will try to trick to visit a batik painting exhibition. It is a scam, they want you to buy a painting at an inflated discounted price. They will tell you it is the last day of the exhibition.
Overall, a great hotel and very great staff.
