This homestay is located in a very Central part of Solo City (Surakarta). Certainly within walking distance--or very most a short becak ride to anywhere in the City. However, this is a GREAT place to learn Javanese Culture--especially gamelan music. You can "rent" the gamelan for a private lesson (a private teacher from Institut Seni costs about Rp 100,000 for an hour)--or if you stay at the homestay they will let you use and or listen to the gamelan.
Any other activities or learning experiences can be arranged on site.
