We recently stayed at The Phoenix Hotel in Yogyakarta and can recommend it. The hotel building itself is beautiful. Service was excellent and very friendly.
Food prices are reasonable and the food is truly delicious, drinks are relatively pricey. The hotel offers a wide range of international and Indonesian dishes, breakfast buffet was comprehensive.
Our room did not face the pool but was nice enough, not too big, not too small, and had its own little balcony (however only with one chair). Design of the room is stylish, but not overly. There's complementary water bottles, a minibar and facility to make coffee or tea in a mini pantry.
The hotel's location is OK. It's in the main city area, but not near any particular site. It is about a 15 min walk along a busy street to get to some major sites and Malioboro street. There are trishaws available outside of the hotel. The hotel pool looks beautiful but is actually quite small, more to freshen up that to do laps.
The spa was very good and reasonably priced.
Conclusion: Fine hotel, would stay again when in Yogya.
- 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
