Rumah Mertua Boutique Hotel was highly recommended by my good friend (hello shobe!) who travels frequently to Indonesia so I didn’t think twice in choosing to stay here. It is 10 minutes away from Adisutjipto airport by car and a 15-minute drive to the center of Jogja. For temple runners, its 30 minutes away to Prambanan Temple and an hour away to Borobudur Temple.
The hotel has a car rental service for airport pick-up and drop off (IDR 250,000 = Php 881.16) and tour arrangements as well (IDR 695,000/ 10 hours = Php 2,449.63).
I must say, the staff at Rumah Mertua delivers excellent service! They replied immediately to my questions via email and gave tips on how we can maximize our short stay in Yogyakarta.
Yummiest food finds:
Malioboro Road is the most famous shopping spot in Jogja. Here you will find a lot of batik boutiques and souvenir shops. I did my homework and researched for the best all-in-one store in Malioboro and the award goes to….. Hamzah Batik (Mirota Batik)! It’s a three-storey building that sells premium batik products and handicrafts. Score all of these and more at cheap prices!
Have you visited Yogyakarta? Where did you stay? What is your best purchase, the best food you’ve tasted and your best reason to come back? Let me know! =)
