A Nice 5 star hotel with traditional Javanese touch with excellent service, good cleaness, nearby mall and airport, also close to the city crowd. Only a few minutes to the center of Yogyakarta. They also sell a delicious GELATO at the Hotel lounge.

2nd stay after 4 years, still as great as the first
Reviewed 6 days ago

Royal Ambarrukmo hotel never failed to delight me, my 2nd experience after 4 hours was equally as great as the first back in 2015. Due to high season they graciously upgraded me to their junior suite, which was very spacious and facing the beautiful Keraton! Staffs are efficient, welcoming and really know what they are doing. Breakfast was delicous and plentiful, especially loved the GUDEG and Jamu, which is unique to Javanese cuisine. It was so nice to meet the F and B manager Ms. Iput again, so wonderful that she still remember me from way back! She made me feel like I was coming home again, just amazing

it's worth noting that the hotel itself has such a glorious history, was a royal residence for the sultan in the past, right next to it is a big shopping mall for that extra convenience. Even with the new arrival of Marriot, Royal Ambarrukmo still is, and will still be, the grand dame of luxury hotel here in Jogja.

Children love it

As usual the room, the pool, the kid garden, the playground, all are good. But, during my stay the restaurant that usually used for breakfast still in renovation. The temporary restaurant moved from 8th floor to a "pendopo" without notification, and the service of that temporary restaurant really bad

Good place, good services

They have spacious rooms, clean and the staff have good hospitality. Recommended for family because there is a swimming pool and park so we can spend relaxing time inside the hotel.
the meeting package was also good.

3 Days training & stay at Royal Ambarrukmo
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I stayed here for 3 days for training purposes that held in this hotel. My friend processed the booking through the training vendor and we got almost 40% lower rates compared to the market price. Although some reviews and rumors said that this hotel is creepy & horror, fortunately we don't experience those things. The room is completed with good facility, especially the bed is very big & comfort. My 2-years-old child is very happy and comfortable with the room so that he could have a piece sleep. It has good facilities which child-friendly such as swimming pool, playground, large garden, luxurious dining room and delicious food. It also near from large shopping mall that can be reached by 5 minutes walk.
