Wonderful experience! We (and especially kids) loved the breakfast and the Friday night dinner buffet. Only drawback is its not walking distance from the main part(s) of town. But taxis aren't expensive. Most personnel was very forthcoming. We got put off a little when we were told that airport transfer back was fully booked for the next day when we were initially told it would be no problem. They "could see what they could do" is not something you want to hear when you need to leave at 5am. In actual fact, it was no problem to arrange a cab we found out later, but why keep us worried?
As for personal preference, the pillows are too thick!

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.
