Still good

Linda G TripAdvisor review

We stayed here in 2017 and came back now. It still is a fantastic hotel. The colonial ambiance is so lovely. Staff at the reception and the manager are very friendly and helpful. We could stay longer at the day of our check out which was relaxing. Room was perfect. Swimming pool still beautiful and the indoor garden is nice as well. Very clean everywhere. We had dinner in the hotel once and ordered the rendang. Unfortunately that was not as good as we expected, it had no spicy taste and the portion was small. We booked a massage at the spa and that was very good. This hotel still has it and I will always book this hotel when coming to Jogya.

A comfrotable stay in Yogya

The hotel is close to the train station which is a big plus. The nice streets and squares you can reach on foot (Marlioboro street) but it is a bit of a walk. The street where it is on is quite busy and crossing can be challenging. The hotel has a superb spa and the pool is nice. The restaurant is good but nothing worth mentioning. Our room was spacious but has a run down couch and a poorly working water cookes. It is a 5* property but could do with a little TLC.......

Lovely character hotel

Vivian Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed 5 nights at the hotel and was glad we opted for breakfast as they was limited breakfast options in the vicinity for first timers with a kid :) the hotel room looked and felt tired but the saloon near the reception was a good spot to hang and read. Housekeeping was efficient. Breakfast selection was exciting for the kid, with good Indonesian dishes for us to try. Staff were friendly! We requested king sized bed but think these were not available so the hotel pushed 2 twin sized beds together - the kid sleeping in the middle was quite disturbed by this as it was uncomfortable. Proximity to snack stalls is amazing!

A little (open) secret in the middle of a fascinating city - a 100+ year old house converted into a hotel, Phoenix MGallery is really the place to be if you want a fantastic mix of convenience, luxury, history and just sheer personalised hospitality. The pre-arrival WhatsApp conversation covered all our arrival and diet needs and the room preference as well. And they were followed to the “t”. I like to have a specific set of foods for breakfast - really helps me start my day and it was all made available exactly the way I like. Ghita at the front desk will ensure that all your requests are attended to promptly. She’s also super knowledgeable about the property and the city. She does a hotel tour that you must not miss. We got to see the Soekarno’s favourite rooms while he lived there. Had we known about this, (I kind of booked it in a hurry seeing the pretty photos) we might have asked for that room! Special shout out to her for making our stay very comfortable, feel warmly welcome in Jogja and esp. attending to my daughter’s needs with so much attention and warmth. Shendy and the 2 older gentlemen at Paprika (whose names I can’t recall just now) made sure that our dietary needs were well attended to. The sheer variety of food is incredible - and it’s not easy to have them all done in a way that’s delicious and wholesome. Don’t miss the traditional drink served at breakfast. It reminded me of a South Indian traditional herbal drink made of betel leaf, turmeric, ginger and so on. The property itself is very beautiful - don’t rush to your rooms from the lobby. Enjoy the old tiles in the lobby and the waiting area, the fantastic wooden carvings from the Ramayana and small statuettes and traditional art all through the property. You may face minor infrastructure inconveniences - esp in the older part of the building; it’s important to note that it’s not easy maintaining such an old building and I’d say it’s part of the overall experience - embracing it! After 2/2.5 days of intense sightseeing, we took the Sun evening off to just chill at the property - Tri and Mas Ndaru at the Vino Bar took really good care of us. Overall, it was an absolute pleasure to spend 4 nights at Phoenix - don’t miss this when you are here in Jogja.
