Built in the 1918, has a fabulous colonial-local style mix. It is located north of the city,close to Malioboro rd but too far from the kraton and the cultural sites in the city.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Food service is slow. Night wait sometime for condiments such as ketchup or sauces. Food is reasonable. Great cocktails.
Downside- finer details. One chair on the outside verander table for a room
Lack of replenishment of toiletries on day two.
Rooms facing the city are noisy as there is a school next door! Woken up by motorcycle and chatting at 6am.
Woken at 7am by cleaning services as mistaken openned the door and realized was the wrong room and then closed the door. When confronted outside the room- appologies as entered the wrong room.
Free 10min neck massage- excellent. The spa is excellent!
Hence a very mixed visit but positive nevertheless!

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
