I have to temper my review by stating that I don't care for Yogyakarta at all. I have been to over 32 different countries, countless cities, and Yogya is one of my least favorite spots. That being said, a trip to Yogya is necessary to see Prambanan Temple, which was spectacular.
I recommend staying at the Hotel Puri Asri (about 1 hour away from Yogya) when you go to visit Boroubudur Temple, which is even better than Prambanan.
The Hotel Santika was nice compared to the surrounding city, and it had a nice pool, decent breakfast, clean facilities, and some safe dining options around it.
