“Merbabu Hotel”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Merbabu Hotel is a reasonable-priced budget hotel (inclusive of breakfast for 2 people) with good location, helpful staff and close to some travel agents providing trip to Borobudur and Prambanan.
There's a lovely rooftop cafe where you eat your breakfast and to relax after a busy day. The area itself is full of backpackers’ hostels, so it's really easy to find essentials such as internet cafe and laundry.
It's very well located - you can easily walk to the Tugu Train Station (0.5 km), Venderburg (0.9km), Kraton Palace Complex (end of Malioboro Str), Taman Sari (0.2km), Tugu Pahlawan, Matahari shopping mall and the ever famous Malioboro Street (0.3km).
If you want to get to the hotel from the airport, take Transjogja bus 1A (bus shelter is on the left of the departure terminal, across the under pass) and get off at the first stop on Malioboro Street (Halte Malioboro 1). It will only cost you 3000 IDR! Merbabu Hotel is on Sosrowijayan Road which is the 1st road on your right as you come out of the bus shelter and the hotel is about 200 yards down the road.
However the room is not cleaned everyday but you can request the staff to do so and the free wifi is only available on the roof top café but not in the rooms. Otherwise, this hotel is excellent value for money.

Reviewed 7 September 2011

I stayed with my wife and daughter here for four nights in April 2011. Though it is on small lane with out direct road access, it is just a minute walk away from the Malioboro Street where all the action in Jogjakarta takes place. The lady named Wulan was very helpful even before we landed in Indonesia and she was a wonderful and helpful host throughout our stay. She arranged tickets for all the attractions and even got a nice cab with wonderful driver Aathing..I hope I spelled his name right. I really would recommend Jogjakarta to all who love heritage tourism and recommend Merbabu Hotel for those budget conscious people for a comfortable stay
