BF and I spent a weekend at this hotel and found it adequate to our needs - a quiet and comfortable place to sleep while we had 2 full-on days of sight-seeing around Yogya. Mind you, it was quiet because we had specifically requested a quiet room overlooking the pool. Rooms in other parts of the hotel would have been subject to traffic noise from the major road in front of the hotel, early morning calls to prayer from a nearby mosque, or noise from the large, open dining area.
While the building itself was beautiful, and the rooms were nicely decorated, we found the marble floored corridors a little hospital-like, as well as noisy (I felt very sorry for people sleeping, when we checked out at 7am and I had to roll my suitcase with a broken wheel along those floors - what a racket it made!). There were also a lot of ants in our room, which we had to ask house-keeping to spray.
We can't comment on the food, as we did not eat there. However, we did find the staff to be very friendly and courteous.
While we have rated certain aspects of this hotel as a "4", our overall rating of "3" for this property is based on comparing it with the other numerous 5 star international hotels that we have stayed at. When put into the 5 star luxury category, the Phoenix has a fair way to go.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This legenderay hotel was initially built as private estate in 1918. Through the ensuing decades, the property changed hands a number of times, until a Dutch caretaker turned it into Pensioner Hotel. The Phoenix name was deliberately chosen by the last proprietor who hoped that it would remain intact forever, believing in the ancient myth of The Phoenix, the sacred fire bird symbolizing regeneration throughout eternity.The Phoenix Hotel is elegantly situated in down town Yogyakarta, the cradle of Javanese civilization. The legendary Malioboro Street is just nearby, while the world herigate Borobudur and Prambanan temples are only an hour drive. Yogyakarta's cultural heritage and picturesque settings emit a distinctive charm that seldom fails its visitors.The 144 beautifully appointed rooms are reflecting the ambiance of bygone era wrapped in modern comfort facilities, enabling its occupant to celebrate a glorious past without losing the beauty of contemporary living. ... more less
