We had 4 days 3 nights tour to Yogyajakarta after spending 2 nights at Jakarta.
We tried to book Whiz Hotel for its near distance to Malioboro and fair review. Unfortunately it was fully booked, so we ended up staying at Dafam Fortuna Hotel which was a bit further but supposed to be a fairly new hotel. However, I had bad experience with the hotel which I had reviewed in an earlier post. So for the next two nights we moved to Ibis Yogyakarta Hotel, which we had stayed in my previous trip to Yogyakarta one year ago.
The plus points about this hotels is it's location, which has a direct entrance to the Malioboro mall where we can find good choice of shopping of fairly god quality goods, especially when you want to get away from the outdoor shopping, which is associated with dust and heat. There are also a lot of eateries and salons as well.
The hotel staffs including the doormen were very helpful and efficient, In fact, this is the trait I find in most hotels I stayed in Yogya. Trishaws and taxis can be found just outside the hotel. As it is a fairly old hotel, the rooms are spacious with big window and letting in bright light. Bed are firm. Room is jaded with old fittings, but I have no problem with them.
Very good water pressure and hot water is available all the time, that is a very plus point. But I think it is high time they refurnished the rooms. That would make it the hotel of choice to stay in Yogya. Breakfast served also had fair share of Asian and continental choices.
All in all, I had a good experience staying at Ibis Malioboro. If I do come back, this would be the hotel of my choice.
