The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta.
Still little bit about my last trip to Indonesia, this time I want to share about our awesome trip to Yogyakarta. I like this city very much, not only because of the food and the hospitality but also I enjoy staying in a hotel or accommodation rich in history like Phoenix Hotel in Yogyakarta. This amazing hotel with 144 elegant rooms and suites was built in 1918 by a rich Chinese merchant, Kwik Djoen Eng, for his private residence. After the war it was the official residence of the Chinese consulate and then become hotel in 1951. The hotel located right in the city, only 1 km from Tugu Station, 15 km from Yogyakarta International Airport also near Tugu monument. Free internet access is always great too

Breakfast in this hotel is enormous. Plenty of choices and very tasty, being a food lover this place is like heaven to me. They provided speciality regional food of Yogyakarta called Gudeg. Beside local foods Chinese Dim Sum are provided and many more.
Western style breakfasts complete with cheese, salad,cold meat, omletes, waffles and different types of pastry are available too.
This is traditional local beverage called Jamu, it means medicine. My grandma used to make me this kind of drink when I’m not feeling well. She will make turmeric drink for stomach ache, rice and kencur to increase appetite and butrowali (very bitter), I can’t remember what that one for but normally I drink it anyway
If you don’t feel like going out from your room to get breakfast, I recommended breakfast in bed. They have got a very good selection of room service menu for breakfast in bed and the price is reasonably cheap
The room service is outstanding. It didn’t take to long and the food is very tasty. The burger is so yummy and so is my oxtail soup
Because the location is so central, it is very easy to get around Yogyakarta city from this hotel. We liked to take pedicabs or as Indonesian call it becak to go around to places like Yogyakarta palace and Malioboro. The cost is about Rp.30.000 or AUD $3.00 one way. The road is very busy, but you will get used to it
I love this hotel and definitely recommend it to anyone. Happy stay, happy day
