From the moment you enter the Phoenix, you will be taken aback by its modest exterior compared to what lies behind the walls. This magnificently preserved colonial building has been renovated to world class standard, whilst retaining its heritage.
It is beautifully appointed, with tasteful decor, excellent facilities ( spa, sauna, pool, gym, restaurants and bars), fabulous staff and attention to guests, excellent cuisine, and there is truly no comparison to any modern 5 star hotel you will find in Yogya, or for that matter in many other cities throughout Asia, and in fact even Europe.
Every moment at the Phoenix is a constant imprint in the mind that you are in a city steeped in history. I have been travelling to Yogya since on a 5 yearly basis since 1974, have stayed in Losmens to mid range hotels, budget accomodations and many modern hotel chains. i will not go past The Phoenix again.
It is value for money, sure a tad upmarket pricewise, and most internal items purchased can be purchased outside at a lot less, however for accomodation, service and overall comfort, I believe it can't be beat. my initial stay was for 2 days, however I was so impressed I extended an additional 3 nights and cancelled an alternative hotel booking arrangement.
My congratulations to the management and staff. i sincerely hope my next stay, (which might I add will be much sooner than the 5 yearly (as i travel to Indonesia a few times annually) as i previously mentioned.
I will certainly be recommending The Phoenix to my friends when I arrive home. It is just a pity Accor has no more than the 2 hotels available in Indonesia.

Through the ensuing decades, the property changed hands a number of times, until a Dutch caretaker turned it into Pensioner Hotel.

The legendary Malioboro Street is just nearby, while the world herigate Borobudur and Prambanan temples are only an hour drive.
