I wish to point at the Rich Jogja where I stayed for more than a week. I managed to book almost every night (except a Saturday) for around 36 euros. They gave me a huge room and let me keep it the whole time. It is next to the Jogja City Mall, the staff is more than wonderful, so this is definitely a cheap alternative for the hotels mentioned. I was not able to book those hotels for the stated prices. Ambarukmo, Sheraton and especially Melia were much more expensive all the time on Agoda.
Hi Bert, thanks for your recommendation! Yes you are right! The article needs to be updated, thanks for reminding me of that 🙂
It is a never ending project haha. Btw, Rich Jogja I think it is a 4 star hotel, but I might be wrong 😉
Hope you have a great day!
