Finding cheap good hotels in Jogja isn’t that easy nowadays. So with the prices offered for a place to stay, Tentrem Hotel is one of those you’d pay and be satisfied with what you get in return.

We booked online and checked in quite late that day. In minutes we’re able to get a room in 2nd floor. The lobby is huge, and for us, it was quite a surprise to find a hotel in the middle of the city of Jogja with a lobby this big. Parking is an easy matter too. Our first impression of the hotel is: “Look, Mom! The elevator has a chair to sit on.” We never get to sit that long cos we’re staying on the 2nd floor. Too bad.
The room is comfortable and spacious. Our view may not be the best (the hotel is building a grand ballroom next door). But Andrew enjoyed the hotel too much that he (for the first time) could only fall asleep on midnight. He set the alarm for 7 the following morning and woke up happy. He loves the breakfast and plays in the playground (it’s raining so we skip the pool) for hours. I ask him what he loves the most about Tentrem, here’s what he has to say: “There are a lot of things to play in the hotel, there’s a table soccer game by the pool and the playground is awesome. The bed is really cool and I love having alarm clock next to my bed.”
Honestly, other than my brother's complaining that this hotel could use a slightly smoother check-in process, and that it only has instant ginger coffee packets in the room, I have nothing to complain about our stay.
Make The Most of Your Visit:
- Make use of the playground – especially when you visit during the rainy season. The pool is outdoor so the kids playground (which has indoor gym, and creativity corner) is a life saver. Just don’t forget to bring socks to play here.
- Come early for breakfast. When the hotel is full, it’s a little pack during breakfast time. Food selection is awesome though and it’s refilled everytime.
- Take becak to go to Malioboro. It’s not to far, but will be a stretch for walking.
