A Stay Worth Staying ”
My friend and I went to Jogjakarta from 9 to 13 February 2013. We stayed at Royal Ambarrukmo Yogyakarta - Managed by Santika Indonesia. The Hotel was situated next to the Plaza Ambarrukmo – a mega mall with Carrefour supermarket – that offers almost everything under one roof. Complimentary airport pick-up and drop-off was provided by the Hotel – a 10 minutes drive. This Hotel has a Garden, surrounded by greenery with lots of trees! Nature all around! We stayed on the 7th floor with the garden and swimming pool view. Room was spacious, clean, and the beds/pillows were comfortable. Bathroom with good flow of running water and all the necessary soap, sampoo, comb, toothbrush, etc., were provided. Could not ask for more! Splendid! Breakfast was included in the package. It was very good, ranging from Western to the typical Jogja breakfast. Gamelan music, Jogja style was the played “Live” every morning during breakfast. Every staff that we met during our Hotel’s stay was polite, always smiling and never fail to say Selamat Pagi, Selamat Siang or Terima Kasih/Thank you. Love the unique uniform of the Doorman! Been to other cities in Indonesia before, by and large I think the people in Jogja are more polite and have good etiquette. And surprise, surprise, Jogja is a clean city. The roads are kept clean and so are most of the drains. If ever I will visit Jogja again (most likely), I will definitely stay at Royal Ambarrukmo Yogyakarta - Managed by Santika Indonesia.
ROYAL AMBARRUKMO YOGYAKARTA - A NICE HOTEL TO STAY”
Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel, Yogyakarta is a nice hotel to stay, similar to many other hotels of the same grade. It has a very spacious lobby and a lot of places to seat and relax without having to stay at the room. The Reception is efficient and the whole supporting staff area excellent. The advantage Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel has is its nearness to the Airport, just about 10 minutes drive without having to pass through the busy city centre. It is next door to Ambarrukmo Plaza [shopping mall] but the mall has been overtaken by the latest biggest mall Hartono Mall on the northern side which is much more lively and grand. The normal room is quite OK and acceptable although the bathroom is slightly smaller than others. The breakfast has a vast spread and we should be able to make the choice from what is being offered, which is one of the advantages staying in Ambarrukmo. TV channels are more than enough. There is a museum by the same name. In other worlds at the same place there are Ambarrukmo Hotel, Ambarrukmo Museum and Ambarrukmo Plaza. But the museum is very small and you can cover it in half an hour. One good thing it has a good parking area for those coming by car. Nonetheless, Ambarrukmo is also facing steep competition with existing and newer hotels. As we have stayed in Melia, Harper and Ashton, Ambarrukmo is quite comparable and afterall taste and experience is subjective. Thus overall, Ambarrukmo should be an excellent hotel to stay.

Clean and efficient”
We had a nice stay at the Royal Ambarrukmo. While its located a bit outside the city centre of Yogyakarta, it was very conveniently located in terms of arranging transports and shopping. Its next to Jogja's best shopping mall, the ambarrukmo plaza. This means that there are always reasonably priced taxis available and no need for a limousine service (although it is available). The breakfast is the main attraction at the hotel, where the selection is extremely varied and the food tastes amazing. I can safely say that i've never encountered a better indonesian breakfast buffet. There's so many different stations offered freshly cooked indonesian food and there's a wide variety. Adding on the live gamelan band playing during the breakfast service it is an excellent opportunity to sample some indonesian specialities. The rooms are simple but clearn, the swimming pool is small but the water is cool and refreshing. Another highlight of our stay at Ambarrukmo was the nice gardens in the back.
Nice Mount Merapi View”
My booking with Agoda is always a pleasure holiday for me and family. My vacation with family destination is Yogyakarta. I heard that Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel just reopen after remoddeling. So we decided to try this hotel. When we walked in to our room fist thing we see is the Tip off Mount Merapi in clear blue sky from the balcony. I recommeded this Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel in Yogyakarta... because they always clean the room and towel everytime we walked out from the room. I do not know how they knew if we walked out from the room and change the towel with the clean towels ..... Thank you Agoda....
Beautiful integration of traditional and modern”
It was my first trip to Yogyakarta and starting it off in Royal Ambarrukmo was a perfect decision. The hotel was situated right beside the Royal Ambarrukmo Mall yet having Mount Merapi as its backdrop. Spending only a night here, I was already enthralled and fell in love with what the hotel and the city have to offer. After an early morning trip to Borobudur, the breakfast spread that the hotel provided was such a treat to our hungry tummies. If you don't know where to get the local food in Yogyakarta, search no more - the hotel's breakfast spread has EVERYTHING from gudek to jamus. We will definitely be back some day soon.
Excellent and enjoyable stay for Lunar New Year”
There were total 13 of us travelling to Jogja for our Lunar New Year holiday. Reservation staffs were very prompt and helpful in handling our various requests (bed type, floor level, private tour package, shopping mall directories, reunion dinner arrangement) few months before our trip. I was already impressed with their response and patience prior to my trip. True enough, all the staffs did not disappoint us. From the driver that picked us up from airport, hotel reception, waiter, waitress and chef at the restaurant, concierge and security guards, all of them made our stay very pleasant and our family had a memorable time at Yogyakarta. Special thanks for Ms Ervina from the restaurant. She was very friendly and patience in explaining the dinner buffet for Lunar New Year to us. It was an excellent recommendation. Wide choices of traditional Chinese dishes, splendid singer to entertain us with melodious songs throughout the night. Pleasant surprise to have lion dance performance and waiter/waitresses to dance and serve "Yu Sheng". Only suggestion is to include "CCTV" channel in the TV Channel list so that we can watch "Chun Wan" celebration live from China to end the night perfectly. Will definitely stay at Royal Ambarrukmo if we travel to Yogyakarta again.
Second stay yet still satisfied”
yes, i'm still satisfied for my second stay at royal ambarrukmo yogyakarta. the hotel has best services with it's strong javanese character. and now, at my second stay, i got to experience "javanese traditional tea time" at this hotel, where all the server in javanese costumes and all the gamelan musics in "small theater" feeling. even though this is a business purpose, i got to feel i'm on holiday. it's a great choice to choose this hotel!
Excellent stay with easy access to shopping centre”
Had a wonderful 3 nights stay at the Royal Ambarrukmo Yogyakarta hotel. Staff were very polite and attentive to your request. Excellent breakfast buffett with different selections everyday. 3 minutes walk to the Ambarrukmo Shopping Centre. Will definetely stay in this hotel the next time I visit Jogja.
Just a right choice for business traveler”
i was very pleased with my stay at royal ambarrukmo yogyakarta. with the best locations for business traveler, i suggest if you want to go there for business you can stay there as the hotel is adjacent to shopping centre so in many ways in indonesia, it's easier to find transportation (taxi) and to buy food, drinks, etc. the room is also very clean and spacious.
The Best Hotel in Yogyakarta!”
the lobby is bright and full of friendly atmosphere. all staffs welcome anyone with warm smile and are very willing to help. the room here is spacious. and the ambarrukmo plaza shopping mall is just 3 minutes walk from the hotel. the garden is very well maintained. breakfast buffet is really great. they have quite a lot of traditional dishes for breakfast and very good options of western breakfast too. although the spa/massage was not available while i stayed, they offered to give me a free ride with the hotel car to their related hotel for spa/massage. i visited other huge five star hotels in town, such as hyatt and sheraton. this hotel is smaller than those famous hotels and it doens't have exotic outer appearance as hyatt or sheraton has, but the sincere service and extremely comfortable environment are way better than any other attractive tricks. in terms of price, this hotel is really worthy of the money. it is cheaper than most of other five star hotel, and yet it beats them in so many ways. this is indeed the best hotel in yogyakarta, so i will definitely come again if i visit here!
my wife and i go to yogyakarta about every second weekend. twice now we have stayed at royal ambarrukmo. we are very pleased with this hotel, it is maybe one of the very best in this area. the rooms are spaceous and comfortable with a great view to gunung merapi. the swimming pool and the garden are very beautiful and comfortable. this is a very quiet family oriented hotel, and the other guests have so far been very polite and agreeable, people of some class. breakfast is just wonderful. the best in jogja.
Lovely hotel in Jogyakarta”
I love this hotel by - Yogyakarta standards, this would probably be one of the best hotels in the city. Rooms are all newly renovated with a balcony, the breakfast had a wide selection of food from local treats to international and even Japanese sushi, and the pool is a great treat for my son, with plastic balls strewn in the kiddy pool, my 4 year old son totally loved it! The pool attendant was very friendly and an ready to help all the time, he was the star of the area, I noticed how attentive he was to all the guests in the pool area, sadly I did not get his name, but the hotel should commend their staff - they treated all their guests like royalty. And I should add that the garden in the hotel is beautiful and well kept, with a small pond and some small resting areas. Oh, and I think that the mall beside the hotel is a great addition to the location of this hotel, very convenient. Negatives: 1. Bathroom is small and cramped, and the glass separator from the shower area in the bathroom leaves an opening in between so the whole bathroom floor gets flooded easily. 2. Lastly, I hope the hotel would PROHIBIT parents/nannies of their kids swimming in the pool to feed their children "while inside the pool". It just feels soo unhygienic, seeing some of the food on the side of the pool and "in" the pool itself. I also noticed that some kids did not have proper swimming attire. This is something I always see happening in Indonesia, where kids are allowed to swim with their clothes on, without the proper attire, again unhygienic, please make this a rule for kids that should they want to swim, please wear the proper swimming attire. Otherwise, I loved my stay in this hotel, and would definitely stay and recommend The Hotel Ambarrukmo hotel to friends and family.
New and luxurious hotel”
We travel as a couple to enjoy the historic town of Yogyakarta. Royal Ambarrukmo is definitely provide us with local traditional javanese ambience. The hotel is actually a national heritage that was just reopened after a renovation. The touch of ethnic, yet luxurious is everywhere from the lobby all the way to the room. Hotel staffs were friendly. Breakfast was excellent.
Yogyakarta at its best”
this is a historical hotel and was one of first hotels built in yogyakarta. it was owned by sultan's family and the management has done a big renovation at this hotel. the furnitures are upgraded. the room is excellent. every room features a balcon for relax. the swimming pool is nice, and all of the staff was kind and helpful. they always greet us with a warm smile everytime passing around us. this hotel is located next to ambarrukmo plaza, the largest shopping mall in central java. public bus stop of transjogja (busline) is available at the road in front of this hotel, ready to connect us to many tourism spot in yogya such as the famous prambanan temple, malioboro, keraton (the palace), and around the city by air-con bus for only rp 3,000 per trip. metered taxis are also available at the frontdesk if you wish a more pleasant journey. overall my experience staying at this hotel was great and their rates are quite affordable. i've just known that since 2012, this hotel is managed by santika hotels, a renowned hotel chain in indonesia.
Great value for money”
I had a great stay at the Royal Ambarrukmo hotel. It is in a very convenient location, which is beside a shopping mall, and is near the airport. The staff are exceptional, very accomodating and efficient. The food is great both in terms of variety and taste. The facilities give an elegant feel. And you get to feel Indonesia's richculture with their live Gamelan music during breakfast, and the proximity to the Pendopo which houses different activities and performances every week. You get more than what you paid for at Royal Ambarrukmo. It's an excellent place to stay in at Jogjakarta.
Wonderful hotel with great service.”
we stayed for a long weekend in march 2012. from the first encounter i saw that this would be a great stay. the hotel is stately and nice, the rooms are spacious, including the bathrooms, and the big balcony had a wonderful view of the garden (park), the swimming pools and gunung merapi at a distance.there is lcd tv and wifi in the room, good. we know yogyakarta very well and go there several times a month, so we were happy to see that ambarrukmo plaza was next door, great for shopping and the best mall in jogja. also the hotel is very easy to find by car on jalan laksda adisucipto, the road to the airport and to candi prambanan. the breakfasts were absolutely wonderful and the service unbeaten. we also liked the swimming pool very much, and i even got some colour on my white body. dinner was very good, hot as it is supposed to be here. i was surprised that all the wine was sold out. later we noticed that it was not sold out; a big party had ordered the whole cellar! but this is java, and wine for dinner is not a matter of life or death, obviously.... this is clearly a hotel for rather well to do families, and it is quiet and comfortable. it is a 5* hotel and expensive, but off season you can have a very good discount, so i wil recommend it as strongly as i can. my wife and i are going back there next week end....
a pleasant stay in the hotel”
We enjoyed a very happy stay in Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel for our honeymoon trip. The room is quite comfortable and with a big balcony, which has a very nice view of the swimming pool surrounded by flowers. The hotel staff are very nice and considerate. I do like the uniform of the girls. Though it is not located in the city center, the hotel is not far from the airport and enjoys a very convenient transportation system. We want to give a suggestion to improve the hotel service. If there can be a water-proof curtain to separate the shower room, the floor of the washing room can be kept dry. And the tooth brushes, we hope we can get better ones in our next stay. Anyway, It is a very good choice for vacation.
A great Hotel located next to Ambarrukmo Plaza, one of the best Mall in Yogyakarta. Stayed here for a Wedding at the Hotel Ballroom. Stayed 2 nights. Choosed the Junior Suite room as it is on Promo on Agoda. Besides, the Deluxe room is too small (It says 40 m2 but I am sure it is less than that). The Junior Suite room is spacious and clean. Standing shower only (no bathub). Ours is facing the main road. The noise insulation in the room is very bad. Despite the fact that we are on 6th floor, we can still hear the traffic down clearly. Lodge complaint to the Management and was handled by Miss Tince, Guest Relation Officer. Got upgraded to Executive Suite Room. A very nice room indeed with separate Living Room, Guest toilet, Coffee Machine, and separate bathub-shower. Highly recommended. Will choose this room the next time we stay at Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel. Breakfast is good. Buffet dinner is also good. The food at the Wedding was also OK. HUGE ballroom. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Superb Breakfast! Generous hotel”
It was awesome stayed at Royal Ambarrukmo during this long weeknd. I chose this luxury hotel as I wanted to celebrate my husband's bday as well as relaxing with kids after their school tests. Thanks to Ms. Tince had prepared it well, a bday cake and welcome fruit in the room! It met my requests so I gave this two thumbs up! The room view was great facing the pool and we could see the mountain on the left side. Breakfast was the best you can find lots food with great taste. And they also even have kids corner foods! Marshmallow and chocolate fountain made all kids happy! They are generous. They dont limit the mineral water, they also have turndown service: I got my room cleaned twice a day! They dont call you to say hurry up check out time is coming! The negatives are: 1 in my room the hot water was like on off. 1 min hot, 1 min cold. It kept like that. 2. It took long time to bring what u request to the room. Coffe, iron, blanket it took almost 1hr. 3. Wifi is weak 7fl.
Great stay at nice price”
I always booked Royal Ambarrukmo hotel when I have the chance to visit Yogyakarta. Its location is superb, and so is the breakfast served by the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants comfortable and enjoyable stay in Yogyakarta. Great hotel for families and those who want to have a nice shopping experience in this city as this hotel is located by the Ambarrukmo Plaza (the biggest shopping centre in Yogyakarta).
