The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta truly provides a warm hearted luxurious stay. We spent most of our time during our stay relaxing in the hotel unwilling to step out of the hotel till check out time. Luckily we did out sightseeing before checking in.

A very big thanks to Ms. Marlya the Public Relation Manager of Phoenix Hotel for her great hospitality and always there to accommodate our needs during our stay. Would definitely stay again in future.

  1. What are the odds! I also stayed in Phoenix Hotel last time I visited Yogyakarta a year ago. It was really nice indeed with a rather medium price. Although I read that there are even more budgeted hotel with decent room and facilities in Yogyakarta as the demand is inflated.
