Hotel Review - Amaris Hotel Diponegoro, Yogyakarta

While the hotel (or motel, whichever deemed best) we stayed in on the first night in Yogyakarta was not worth mentioning, the following two nights, we were based in Amaris Hotel along Diponegoro Street. Amaris is one of the few budget hotel franchises famous in Indonesia, along with POP! and Ibis hotel chains, that offers affordable accommodation without leaving a huge hole in your wallet nor having you to forsake modern comfort. 

Amaris Hotel Diponegoro

Located along Jalan Diponegoro, within walking distance to the historic Tugu railway station and close proximity to Jalan Malioboro, it is easy to find this hotel as its brightly coloured facade will attract your attention to it. We were greeted by friendly receptionist, eager to help make sure our stays there were nothing but memorable.

Our room..ignore the mess

The room is just as brightly painted as its front facade, with neon green being the colour of our room while the other one being purple, if my memory served me right. This somehow lightens up the room a lot. For the price we paid (about RM 100 per room per night), it was definitely value worthy for the room is intact with every facilities offered by the luxurious hotels.

The room comes with air-condition, a flat screen TV and a work desk

Clean bathroom is definitely a plus point

Just outside the hotel is a bus stop which you can take hop onto a local bus to the main street of Malioboro. It is also easy to call a taxi. Just ask the receptionist to help you out.

All in all, Amaris Hotel Diponegoro is the right choice as it suited our budget without sacrificing any amenities at all.
