Legendary Suite

I’m pleased to make a review here for a little jewel of Accor in Indonesia (Java). I wanted to book it and before that enquired about it to our friend Virtualariswho strongly recommended it to me (thank you Virtualaris). This hotel is conveniently located downtown Yogjakarta. I had booked the highest room category: the Legendary Suite with king size bed (so of course, no upgrade possible).

The hotel is in an old colonial building completely renovated.

The reception area and around:

Other common parts of the hotel:

Dining

The main restaurant has an inside and outside seating areas. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner there. They do also serve snacks at the pool.

The food served was very good, although they they have a supply problem (true for the bar too) as many dishes and many wines on the menu were not available. And the staff doesn’t necessarily know about this so it can turn ridiculous and embarassing when you have 5 times "Sorry Sir, your apetizer is not available" followed 2 minutes later by "Sorry Sir, your main course is not available" and then "Sorry Sir, your wine is not available"… "Sorry Sir, your replacement wine is not available"…Arghhhh

Also, they have some very good wines but also some horrible ones, particularly a very basic French one "cuvee speciale" available in red and white (shame for me as a French !). But this is really the only "negative" point I have to say about my stay there.

Drink voucher was given and they have a special drink menu for what you can have with the voucher (nice touch), but as said above, many selections were not available or pretty poor after tasting and in this case the staff proposed any wine they had on the regular menu (very professionnal way to handle such a situation IMO).

There is no club lounge, but free afternoon tea/coffee and small snacks are offered every afternoon at the bar.

Room

The Legendary Suite was fantastic. Fruit platter and cakes were placed in the room with a welcome letter.

Overall

The hotel arranged well transportation to visit the local wonders (Borobudur and Prambanan temples) and at a reasonable price.

So an excellent Accor address in Indonesia with excellent value for money. Do not hesitate a second to stay there if you go to Yogyakarta.
