An absolute gem in Yogyakarta is the Tulips Hotel (http://www.hotel-tulips.com), Jn Tirtodipuran in the Prawirotaman area, a small guest house with 12 spotlessly clean rooms with private bathroom and private verandah around a swimming pool with sundeck chairs, and a small terrace. Excellent free wifi around the pool area, reaching to most of the rooms. Excellent breakfast, all included in the 300,000 Rupias per night price. The hotel is small enough to enjoy the pool, and has good dinner, too. And if you want something else, a few hundred meters further is a Mediterreanean Restaurant, with good pizzas and other western-style dishes, as well as affordable bottles of Chilean and Australian wine.
