We know those jargon for real estate business. Now I know what it means for hotel business. Situated literally in the center of the town, this is all that this hotel is offering to you. Nothing more, nothing less. You could get more with this hotel's rate, even with cheaper price. But as I wrote in title, location is what this hotel is about.

The Hotel Garuda (now Inna Garuda) was built during the colonial times and is located at Jalan Malioboro, the main road of Yogyakarta. So you won't find any difficulties to find a place to eat ot go shopping. Although an old hotel, there is nothing spectacular or romantic about it. It seems like it went through several renovations, but they did not make the atmosphere more "classical". You would see or two murals on the lobby wall, but placed too high, that it would not strike you that this hotel had some historical significance. Apart than that I think the service was nice, the staff were friendly, and the food was okay.I guess the only plus point for this hotel is its location at Jalan Malioboro.

It's probably one of the oldest hotel in Yogyakarta. But it's still pretty well maintained. I love the breakfast in the morning, featuring some of local comfort foods. The room is clean. Although it is an older hotel, you don't smell that musky smell of an older building. We ordered massage in our room, it's very relaxing. It is very conveniently located on Yogyakarta's most famous street, Malioboro. So you can walk for shopping for local arts and batik.

I'm on a holiday trip to visit all the historical sites in yogyakarta and of course I choose to stay in the heart of the city which is malioboro street. I choose inna garuda because of the location, the brand name, and the pool hoping to have a pleasing stay in yogyakarta. Unfortunately, when I arrive the hotel pick up at the airport is 30 minutes late, and when we check in, we are granted early check in to find out that the pool is under renovation which was not informed to us before... And when we saw the announcement at the pool site the renovation was to be done by august 15.. So that's another disappointment... And then the room smells old... The bath tub is leaking, we didn't get liquid soap only soap bars are available... The breakfast taste horrible I'd better eat on the sidewalk of Malioboro street. The elevator was broken and there's electricity black out during our two days stay.
Overall I'm very disappointed with the so called 4 stars hotel, they need an immediate management and building renovation. I think they're more suitable to be called 3 stars hotel.
The only outstanding point of the hotel is the strategic location.

We stayed for three nights at the Inna Garuda to explore Yogyakarta. The location of the hotel is perfect at the Jalan Malioboro, which is the mainstreet of Yogyakarta. From here you can explore the whole city. Most of the taxi-drivers and becak-drivers know the hotel so it is very easy to make clear where you need to go. When you walk out of the hotel you are on the Jalan Malioboro, where you can find stores, market stalls, warungs and restaurants.

The hotel itself is really large and feels like a business hotel. Because the size of the lobby, and the hotel in general, it feels a bit bleak and the staff is helpful but does not always recognize you as one of the guests.

The room was good, spacious and clean. We booked a deluxe room because it was the only room available, but when you have the choice, a deluxe room is a waste of money. In general the hotel is a little bit overpriced compared to other accommodations in Yogyakarta.

The breakfast is very good and there is a lot of choice. The choice also changed daily. On our last day we used the free shuttle service to the airport, which was perfect. Because we left before breakfast we got a box with sandwiches and potatoes, which was a great service.

Conclusion is that if you are looking for a clean hotel at the perfect location in Yogyakarta, the Inna Garuda is perfect for you. It is a bit overpriced and there probably are a lot hotels in Yogyakarta for a better price.

We had a perfect stay but I rated it 3/5 because it was a bit bleak, too large to be personal and in my opinion a bit overpriced.
