The best thing about this place was , easy to find food around. There are many small cafe and warung near the guest house. The breakfast was totally disappointing, this Wisma Gajah is a guest house and on the other part was another hotel (same garden different side only) although the rate might be different, but the waitress at the...

I arrived late in Yogyakarta so I had to choose this guest house that in pictures it seemed acceptable. But the problems started when I arrived. The receptionist was smoking at the reception. Dirty rooms, the shower doesn't work and is disgusting, don't have remote control of the air conditioned, so if you need to adjust the temperature at 2... More

I stayed here as part of an Intrepid trip and found it to be satisfactory for a two night stay. The pool so welcome, it gets very hot in Yogya. There is a nice lounge area where the group spent more time than in their rooms. A nice poolside bar also. There is Wi-Fi and the street on which is... More

I enjoyed my stay at Wisma Gajah. The location is good, near cheap restaurants and internet, but not so close to the city center. The property is beautifull, nice garden, nice pool, good common areas. Everything else is rather basic. Do not expect variety for breakfast. Rooms defenitly need some updating. Beds are comfortable. Floors are clean, but the bathroom... More

We booked this gueshouse as a second choice, because our primary choice was fully booked. The room is very plain. Very bad and dirty shower. Nice and big swimming pool. Worst breakfast ever. All these downsides are made up by the price point. Very easy to bargain. We got a room rate at 225k/ night.

Don't be enticed by the pool. Prices are par for the course but the rooms and bathrooms are filthy. I had to change rooms three times. First one the door did not lock, second one the a/c was old and busted and the tub was scum lined and absolutely disgusting, the third room which was considered an upgrade, had a... More

We are staying here at the moment for 4 nights, with 2 small kids. It's reasonable value for money. We viewed a few other places on the same street before picking this one on basic of overall value-for-money and generally it meets our expectations for the price-level. Note: outside high-season there is no need to book ahead in Yogya. Simply... More
