We stayed here some years ago and it was OK: http://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-5451-the-phoenix-hotel-yogyakarta-mgallery-collection/index.shtml
Nice enough but the options in Yogyakarta are pretty limited. Also, as a big obvious tourist hotel it's a big obvious target, so don't sit around in reception too long. about 6 years ago
Why is the area dangerous? about 6 years agoAnswered by George via WorldNomads.com
Hi George, the area isn't dangerous and the staff are very pleasant. However I generally try to avoid obvious tourist hotels in any destination as I feel like an obvious target. And while Indonesia is a delightful country, and has a wonderful people, like almost anywhere it has a tiny extremist minority that haven't been shy of targeting tourists in the past.
Unfortunately it is a consideration when you travel almost anywhere these days. about 6 years ago
