The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta is housed in a colonial landmark dating back to the early 1900s. In the heart of Yogyakarta, the hotel is close to Malioboro - the two kilometer long stretch of shops and stalls. The city is home to several heritage landmarks, such as the Sultan's Palace, Kotabaru, and Kotagede to name a few. Guests can also enjoy many sporting activities near the hotel, such as horse riding and golf. This really is a superb accommodation choice in Indonesia. Relax by the pool during the day or let the concierge help you plan a range of activities. The historical Phoenix Hotel is perfect to experience a little bit of the past while you are visiting Yogyakarta.
"All staff are friendly and helpful."

Stay in heritage”
whenever I come to Yogyakarta, this is the only one accommodation for me. Facility is old but so nice in detail and kept in clean. I don't feel any inconvenience in this old facility. And always looking forward to have spa massage in the room. This time I couldn't have for full booking one night, so I decided to have reservation every time I stay.

Excellent Everything but Super Expensive”
This place was pretty awesome in all ways, with few exceptions literally everything is a bit pricey, and the massage I got from the guy was pretty creepy.
Dear Katie, Thank you for your review. We are all happy to know that you enjoyed everything we provided during your stay.

Beautiful Hotel, felt welcomed. Lovely staff & pool. ”
We loved our stay, beautiful hotel & breakfast was great. Only thing i didnt like was the bathroom light was to dark & the statues on the bath sink took over our space for bathroom products. But other than that it was an excellent hotel. Would love to go back.

Great little gam in the city ”
Stayed this hotel many times, still one of best in town, good breakfast and service as well. Downstairs Music at night could be little noisy until 10:30 but hotel prepared earplugs for you. Overall it is still good hotel to staying in Yogya.

Nice heritage hotel with good value”
Located in the old city center but not where the current happening spots are. Beautifully designed based on an old hotel (100th anniversary of the building next year in 2019). Service was not perfect but acceptable. All staff are friendly and helpful. Finding transportation to and fro was easy because the hotel is well known. We chose this hotel because we didnt want to stay in a modern hotel and because the Phoenix rooms have balconies where we could enjoy our breakfast in. F&B quality was only average, even for the traditional dishes. We stayed for 4 nights at a cost of about 400USD net.
Dear Renaldi, Thank you for sharing your experience following your stay with us. It is nice to learn that you loved the central location, beautiful design of a 100-year-old hotel, friendly and helpful service, and ease of transportation. Thank you for highlighting the service and F&B quality, these will certainly enable us to improve our service and facilities to better meet the needs of our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back soon for another memorable experience. Best Regards, Francisca Imas Soraya Guest Experience Manager
Heritage building and nice hotel”
Really nice hotel , heritage building, well maintain. Breakfast is super good, plenty of choice (including the healthy choice). Room is clean, nice decor. Staff really helpful. My wife left her cosmetic in the fridge, while we already reached Magelang, we arrange to pick up at the hotel 3 days later. And yes, she got back her cosmetic. Thank you so much Phoenix Hotel. Will be back for sure!

Top Class Hotel with Excellent Facilities”
The Phoenix is a quality act and delivers excellent performance befitting a hotel of its past pedigree. Excellent service from staff. We were initially given a "smoking" bedroom but when we pointed out that we had asked for on-smoking our rooms was changed immediately. Breakfast was among the best we have had in 5 months+ of travelling. A good location in Yogya and ideal base for Boroudur & Pramanan. Recommended.
Dear John, On behalf of The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta - MGallery By Sofitel, I would like to express our gratitude to thank you for sharing your memorable experience with us. We are pleased learning that you enjoyed the excellent service from the staff, best breakfast, and central location. Your compliments truly boost the spirit of the entire team and we would be more than happy to welcome you back for another memorable experience. Best regards, Francisca Imas Soraya Guest Experience Manager
Heritage building ”
The hotel is a beautiful heritage building. The main street is nearby, around 15-20 min by walking. Some might find it a bit far away but I find it nice because Malioboro is a bit crowded and noisy. The room is clean. But wifi connection is not the best condition, which was just enough for checking emails. It was hard for watching streaming pages or image-heavy webpages. All the staff members are kind and helpful. I find breakfast ok. Coffee was really good. Hope they offer fresh milk or cream for coffee instead of creamers. An ATM and a big bank is just next to the hotel. Thus, it was convenient for us to withdraw Indonesian money. Entrance tickets for famous places are quite expensive, such as one adult for 30-40 US dollars. I became to run out of money soon but it was nice that the hotel was just next to the bank. Overall, the hotel is a quiet and tranquil place and I appreciate the efforts to keep the old building and atmosphere.
Dear Mihye, Thank you very much for sending us lovely feedback following your stay at The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta. It is great to learn that you loved this heritage building, central location, clean room, helpful and friendly staff, good breakfast, good coffee, and ATM facility nearby.

We like most the atmosphere of the hotel - back to colonial architecture and the services ”
Very good services, fast check-in check out, good restaurant and bar, lots of options for food during breakfast or buffet dinner, tasted was not that excellent but okey, bed room was okey, shower/ toilet can be improved, overall good experiences.
Dear Bismo, Thank you very much for sharing your memorable experience following your stay at The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta.

Beautiful hotel with great service and good facilities ”
The colonial architecture is beautiful and staff are great, always attentive and respond quick to requests. The hotel could improve on breakfast menu. I was there for 5 days and the breakfast spread is largely similar every morning. Otherwise, definitely a great place to stay at for a relaxing excursion in Jogja.
Dear Mahadzir, Thank you for sharing such a pleasant experience. We're glad that you loved this colonial building as well as attentive staff. The breakfast spread menu vary each morning with different main courses and healthy corner menu. But of course we have standard breakfast menu that match western and local cuisine. Thank you once again for your feedback, we look forward to welcoming you back for another relaxing stay. Best Regards, Francisca Imas Soraya Guest Experience Manager
Great one night short stay at Phoenix hotel. Didn’t use any of their amenities like pool, spa or gym. Room was comfortable and clean. Facilities are older but clean. Staff was very helpful at all times. Great location to explore marlioboro market and sultan palace etc. Didn’t try their restaurant but the bar was decent. Would stay again if I’m the area.
Dear Meena, Thank you for your feedback! We're glad that you had a memorable stay with us and found the location central, the room clean and comfy, and the bar decent for a relaxing evening. We look forward to welcoming you back for a longer experience. Best regards, Francisca Imas Soraya Guest Experience Manager
Great location with classic old Javanesse property”
Having a very very pleasant location nearby Tugu. With classic Javanesse style interior always be my favourite place in Jogjakarta. Staffs are super friendly, rooms are neat however a bit old furniture you can find. If you like classic and heritage scenery it will works for you. Except some ‘squeaking’ noise of the furniture when you open the cupboard or bathroom door may not be good for you, they are classic anyway. Food are typically on 5 star hotel standard, taste good I enjoy it every day.
Dear Aditya, Thank you for staying at The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta. It was truly our great pleasure to serve you and knowing that the central location, Javanese style interior, friendly staff, and good food gave you comfort made every effort worthy. We would be more than happy to host your next stay in this heritage hotel. Best regards, Francisca Imas Soraya Guest Experience Manager
The primary points why we stayed here are: 1. Cultural aspect - as a vintage hotel showing the Javanese influence. 2.Food - we read good reviews about the breakfast. On those two points, we were happy - especially the breakfast options. You have fresh juices, a corner for uniquely Jogja food, and a vegetarian corner - you have Quinoa dishes, and others. Bread was also delicious. I'd also like to comment their breakfast staff. My girlfriend had fever, so she didn't eat much on our first breakfast. The staff was kind enough to send food (bread and pastries, and tea) to the room. However, here are our other comments: 1. We stayed at a superior room at the old wing. The room is starting to show its age. Some of the switches of the lamps were not working, thus you had to unplug them if you want them off. 2. Room service was disappointing. They didn't replenish the toiletries and coffee and tea. Towels we grouped to be replaced were not replaced - simply folded for reuse.
Dear Carlos, Thank you for your kind review. We are glad to know that you enjoy the hotel building, the food and the service. However, We do apologize for the inconvenience you met during stay related to the lamp switches and the replenish amenities in the room. We will pass them all to the related department to always give better performance for you and for other guest in the next future. We look forward to welcome you back soon. Best Regards, Francisca Imas Soraya Front Office Manager
Great boutique hotel.”
The room was very comfortable and the staff very polite. We really enjoyed the hotel’s collection of art objects and decor. They have a live band playing in the evenings in the restaurant and that made our evenings very cheerful.
