We had no trouble locating the place, which is a real surprise given the compactness of building arrangement in the area! We took a Transjogja bus 1A from the airport, alighted at Malioboro stop 1, crossed the road, turned right and then left at the first junction and walked a minute before finding the lane exactly as described on their web page.
It was a zero hassle check-in/check-out - We checked-in after our showers in the room. And again freshened up before walking to the train station hours after we checked-out.
We are minutes from the main shopping area. Right at the corner, you have a mini-mart for groceries needs. Food and beverage outlets abound depending on your taste, appetite and budget.
The place is remarkably clean. And it is easy to see why. We were there when a volcano went into action filling the place with a thick layer of ash. But within hours, the whole alley was washed and gave a false impression of pristine calm that shocked us when we went out into the main streets. And the owner and staff kept up cleaning the whole area every few minutes!
Thanks to Sammy who was so helpful, we finally found our way out when the airport was closed. He even tried to help us book train tickets online on our behalf! And, oh, the train station is much, much nearer than you think but no worries about noisy trains!
Since we cannot catch all the sights in Jogja this time, we will definitely be back!
