I have mentioned a few times in this blog that I am anti chain hotel. I think it’s a soulless business establishment, exist solely due to its convenience and practicality of an accomodation. I had to eat my own words when I reached the Phoenix Yogyakarta hotel. In my defense, I didn’t know that it was a part of a chain hotel called MGallery, when I booked it.
The Phoenix Yogyakarta Hotel is decorated impeccably with lots of attention to detail, even the tiny ones. It boosts the vintage theme with heavy Javanese cultural influence.
The service was A+ and both the breakfast buffet and room service were way beyond our expectations. I am impressed by how much the Phoenix Yogyakarta Hotel stay has enhanced our travel experience. If I ever come back here, this will be my Yogyakarta hotel of choice. Not only that, I have been looking into MGallery boutique hotels in Asia Pacific regions. St Moriz in Queenstown looks really good for our next trip to New Zealand.
What’s your favorite hotel stay ever? Do you have a favorite hotel chain?
