Whiz Hotel Sep 09, 2011
Whiz Hotel is located strategically in the heart of Malioboro, one of the busiest market and tourists destination in Yogyakarta. It is relatively new (opened in Yogyakarta in August 2010), and will have other hotels opened in other cities in Indonesia (such as Semarang, Legian - Bali, Hayam Wuruk - Jakarta). Staffs were friendly and helpful, overall room and facilities were good with reference to the room rate. The daily rates in Rupiah were single : 350000/night , twin / double : 450000/night , deluxe : 500000 /night, which might vary in holiday / peak seasons. Facilities : breakfast included (standard Indonesian's cuisine or western style breakfast, and drinks like water, juice, coffee and tea provided), TV (with local channel and several international channels like CNN, Star-Sport, HBO, National Geographic), hot water shower, AC, and complimentary mineral water in bottles. No fridge, no hair dryer, no tea / coffee. If you wish to keep some logistics in the kitchen's fridge the staff was happy to help. Walking distance : 5 minutes to Malioboro Mall and the street side's traditional market, and within 1-1.5 hours can cover up to Beringharjo traditional market, Taman Budaya, Alun-alun Yogyakarta, the war monument of 'Serangan Umum 1-Maret-1949), the Vredeburg Museum, and of course the old colonial style of several buildings like Bank Indonesia, Kantor Pos (Post Office), the Presidential Residence, and the Governor House. Souvenir shop like Mirota Batik is within 10 minutes walk (by the way Mirota Batik shop provides the useful-quite complete streets map around Yogyakarta's downtown area), the prices of the retails (batik clothing, souvenirs, art crafts like the wayang puppets, silver art crafts, and wooden souvenirs) were quite reasonable (and save the hassle of bargaining). Famous snacks such as emping crackers can be found in 'Gemah Ripah' shop (with reasonable prices compared to the streetside kiosks). Shops selling 'bakpia pathok', the local famous sweet pie are around and easy to find. Larger shops provide more variety of snacks, fixed price, and considerably better-trusted quality.
