I need to stay for one nite in Yogya, and from the so many choices, I selected Phoenix Hotel, an MGallery Collection Hotel. I believe I made a good choice. The breakfast was good. Maybe this is the first time, a hotel buffet serves "coconut water" and a variety of fruit juices. Tradional Gudeg is also served.
The location is very good. Right on the main street, by the center of the city, close to Malioboro, but the traffic is not jammed during the Holiday season, where tourist are swarming in Yogya.
I also found that The Phoenix hotel sells "Bakpia" a famous tradional cookie from Yogyakarta, specially made for Phoenix, with a special ancient recipe. Try it, make your comments after you compare it with other Bakpia brand.
The next time I am in Yogya, I will stay here again, to enjoy the design of the old Dutch style Back Yard while sipping my cappucino.

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.
