Great Location, good food all around the hotel”
Had a room at the 5th floor, with a terrace overlooking the skyline near the lift lobby. very quiet, not noisy at all. Excellent customer service. Room was bare minimum with attached toilet and shower, enough for me and my wife. No wardrobe,fridge, safe box in the room. Bottled mineral water is provided in the room. Surrounding the hotel are some of the best local food you can find. Right at the heart and beginning of Malioboro street. The hotel is adjacent to Malioboro Mall, where you can find the usual fast foods (didn't try it though, prefer to try local food). Wifi is very weak in the room, except for the lobby area. Breakfast was limited to a main meal and some side meals. (Indonesian cuisine only). We had our driver/guide. very knowledgeable, on time service, even at the crack of dawn, and he knows Yogyakarta very well. You can even have customize tour at affordable rates. Foods to try and recommended: 1) Nasi Gudeg 2) Nasi Rames 3) Terang Bulan (Apam Balik) 4) Sate Ayam (the ones sold by the Javanese Women at the square at the end of Malioboro street, towards Kraton) 5) Ayam Goreng Suharti Resto 6) Grilled Gurame at Kali Opak Resto, near Prambanan Temple
Whiz Hotel is right in the centre of town, yet very quiet. Our comfortable rooms were on the same floor as the smoking verandah, which was very convenient. Breakfast had both delicious local and western options within, it's limited selections. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I will stay again when next I visit Yogyakarta!
Value for Money Hotel!”
I was visiting Yogyakarta for Business purpose and pick this hotel for the 2nd time. This hotel is good for those who seek for easy access to anywhere. For those who loves to shop for some souvenirs or local goods you just need to walk for 2 minutes to reach the main street (Jalan Malioboro). Although the breakfast was so-so (nothing special), the overall satisfaction score that I would give to this hotel is 8 out of 10.
Super convenient & reasonable hotel”
If you are planning to stay in Yogyakarta for few days, do stay in Whiz Hotel at Jln Daegan. The staff in the hotel is very friendly and helpful. The room & shower are clean. That is most important to me. They serve basic local breakfast every morning. The hotel is situated at Malioboro area which is easy for me to access to the markets and souvenir shops by walking or horse cart/bekca. Near that area, there are some great restaurants and so I don't have to worry about my dinner or supper at night.
Great budget hotel in the heart of Malioboro”
Located at Jalan Dagen, this hotel offers convenience of access to Malioboro and other historical sites in Yogyakarta. Room is a little bit small but very clean and well maintained, which was actually much better than what I expected initially. What I value most about this hotel is they serve great local breakfast such as Gudeg, Nasi Uduk, Nasi Pecel and others, which to me is way much better than a standard buffet breakfast found everywhere. Pricewise, it is not that cheap compared to other budget hotels within the area, however I would say it is still reasonable considering what is offered. Another thing to note is parking space may be quite limited for those who drive their own cars.
Convenience Hotel in a busy place”
I've spent one nite to stay this Hotel . This Hotel is very easy to found , on Malioboro street turn the second right so you can see the New Hotel which dominates by green colour. Room its not too big , simple decoration but Whiz have a comfortable bed and pillows for their guest. Some noises from outside can hear from the room , avoid the room near the lift . Breakfast , they only served bread and fruit for buffet . And you can order 1 time Yogyakarta traditional food like : nasi liwet , pecel or etc.
Nice Perfect Hotel”
Great ! I really enjoy my stay at Whiz for the first time. The location is superb, in the middle of Malioboro street. You can go anywhere from here. I really have good impressions for the hotel staffs, they are super friendly and warm. For a budget hotel, the room is good for me. I got nothing to complain about that. After all, I really enjoy my stay at Whiz. A definitely come back next time.
Pleasant stay in Whiz”
For the price we pay, we don't expect much, but Whiz has definitely gave me a pleasant stay! They staff is very friendly, and they speak good English, service is fast and good. The location is located opposite of Malioboro shopping mall, which you can get everything you want, including socket which we forgot to bring it there. There is a food street at your left hand side right after you left the hotel. There are a lot of local food stalls along the street, all within 10 mins walking distance. All the becak are there waiting to pick you to your next destination. In conclusion, for the price we pay, this is a very good hotel!
BEST LOCATION IN MALIOBORO”
Enjoyed my stay at Whiz Hotel. Best location to stay in Malioboro. Short distance to Jalan Malioboro, Malioboro Mall and all the shopping areas. Easy to get taxis. Just opposite at Hotel entrance. No problem with food..all nearby. Borobudur just 1hour drive, 15-20 min to airport. THE ONLY BAD THING IS THE TOWELS...NEED REPLACEMENTS.
Comfort hotel with great location”
Whiz Hotel is truly worth for the money paid. The rooms were cozy, comfort & clean for the rooms that we got. Location is superb as it is very convenient and near to main road. However, it is not as noisy as in main road, you still could enjoy the peacefulness in this hotel. Will stay again in this hotel if visit again Yogyakarta.
Great location, smart & clean with friendly staff”
The Whiz Hotel is very centrally located at the top end, (Malioboro end), of Jalan Dagen. Just a few minutes walk from the railway station and the Transjogja bus stop, which you can use to get to and from the airport for a mere 3,000 Rupiah. The hotel itself is very new, clean, modern, and trendy in terms of its design and layout. The rooms are all white with all white bed linen and towels, laminate flooring and comfortable beds and pillows. There was a seperate, glass walled, shower cubicle, and toilet cubicle, in the double room I stayed in, which were both clean and in working order. The dining room on the ground floor is equally well maintained and presented but the breakfast is poor. Although it is nicely presented and tastes okay there is no choice, each day you are offered a different Indonesian dish. I love good coffee and unfortunately the filtered coffee here is weak and bland. However, the staff are incredibly kind and friendly. My suggestion to the management would be to stop including breakfast in the room rate and lower the cost accordingly. On the downside the only problem I had was with other guests - Indonesians! Indonesians tend to travel in troups - entire extended families holidaying together and inhabiting several rooms on the same landing. They then walk around and behave as if they are in their private home, talking loudly, shouting down the corridors, going from room to room at all hours of the day and night, knocking on the doors, smoking in their rooms and in the corridors, (Indonesians are very heavy smokers), with a total lack of awareness for other guests. Of course other Indonesians will not complain or say anything. I however did and was speedily given another room on a quieter landing by the helpful reception staff. I did think - wrongly - that by staying in a boutique hotel I would be spared "the holidaying Indonesian family", which I have encountered many times before. No Free WiFi in the rooms is also a big minus point.
Perfect Location, But Bad Room Design-Cleanliness”
I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The locations was just perfect. Just a stone's throw from Malioboro Street. Many great local restaurants beside this hotel. And it's just the opposite of Malioboro Mall. I've a got a room beside the emergency exit, and it's kinda smelly when we first entered our room. I also don't like the room design, they separate the toilet and the shower. I even had to call the front office, because my toilet was not clean enough. Overall, it's still a good hotel and not as expensive as another hotels in Malioboro. So I guess if you looking for a good budget hotel in Malioboro, Whiz will be perfect.
centrally located hotel, clean room & good wifi”
i stayed in Yogyakarta for 3d2n. I booked this hotel as this is within the center of the city and walking distance to shopping areas. Despite its close proximity to Malioboro which is a very busy area, faiis quiet and the place is safe for solo traveller like me. It is also within walking distance to tansjogja bus stop. The receptionist are friendly and helpful and they speak good English. I stayed in deluxe room which is quiet with comforatble beds. The television is not really big but at least there's CNN and HBO. There is no cabinet but has a place to hang your clothes. The shower room is separated from the toilet. The lightning in the room is also okay. There is no refrigerator and no electric water heater. The wifi connection is quite good at the lobby, the room and within the hotel premise. The staff even helped prepared packed breakfast for me as I need to leave very early for a tour in the morning. The breakfast does not include a wide array of selections and mainly offer local food which tastes okay. All in all, I find my stay in this hotel satisfactory and able to provide with me the basic things that I need. It might not be as complete as the other bigger hotels but I would suggest it for people who are on budget and who wants to stay in the central part of town as it is easily accesible.
lovely hotel with good location”
small room but good service and friendly staff. i stay for 3 days in this hotel. i pick this hotel due to the location very close to shopping centre in Yogyakarta,Malioboro street. even the room small but it's enough for me who only want to sleep and spend most of my time outside hotel. from hotel, i just need to walk to reach malioboro street.
There were many hotel choices I can pick but whiz hotel was excellent choice. It's worth the money I spend. Everything was great except there is no cupboard. definitely recommended the hotel for your next trip to yogyakarta.
Nice place to stay”
Whiz hotel has a very nice place to stay. Very close to Malioboro road with plenty of traditional food, close and many unique stuff form Jogja. I'd recommend this hotel for traveler in single that would like to go to jogja for business or pleasuer. Make sure you choose room with breakfast, because the they serve Gudeg for breakfast, the javanese food that very delicious. Even though this hotel doesn't have restaurant for dinner and lunch, you don't need to worry, because it is so close to malioboro street which has plenty of restaurant and traditional food in jogja. In general, i'm very pleased to stay at this hotel.
Good Location and Affordable Price”
I was booked the room for 2 nights. And it was a great stayed in Yogyakarta. I got the room in the first level and I thought that i will get the room without window but I was wrong. I get the room with small window in the corner and its enough to get the sunshine from outside. Friendly staff and affordable price for stayed in Malioboro area with such facilities.
Good location, and a cozy room to spend the night”
This hotel is still brand new. There's a several hotels along the same street, but Whiz Hotel is the newest one. Clean room, neat, and a very nice hotel's staff. The staff is friendly, and helpful. Moreover, this hotel only serves one plate for each breakfast coupon. It's not a buffet kind of thing. On the other side, the food taste really well. So,it's not such a bad idea to eat your breakfast in the hotel.
Effective & Efficient Hotel At The Heart Of Yogya”
This hotel should be your first choice if you want a clean, affordable with excellent location to stay. Compare to other hotels located in the same street with this hotel, Whiz have the nearest access to the famous Malioboro street. Whiz is a small hotel with no room service, but if you just looking for a room to stay it will be no problem at all.
standard budget hotel”
it was actually a pretty standard staying experience for 2 nights at Whiz. i choose this hotel after a careful research to some hotels provided at agoda.com. the reviews were mostly good, and said that the room is small. however i need to stay at Malioboro area (the tourist district of Yogyakarta) so i finally end up with Whiz. although i have anticipated the room size, i was very surprised when i entered the room and found it extremely SMALL, i mean, really really small. right after you open the door, on the left is toilet while shower is on the right side (they separate the shower and the toilet). few footsteps from the door you can reach the bed. the distance from the bed to the wall also so narrow you can only walk through it alone. apart from the room size, everything is acceptable. i can only praise the perfect location of it. it's walking distance to malioboro street, also walking distance to the nearest Trans Jogja shelter (malioboro 2). room is clean and tidy, they also give two bottles of mineral water every day. but the breakfast is not provided by buffet. you can only redeem your breakfast coupon with only 1 portion of menu on your preference, and they will charge additional IDR 20.000 if you want extra. drinks, beverage, and toast are available free flow.
