Akur Hotel: Yogyakarta, Central Java

Back in 1994 I just happened to break my reading glasses, and, fortunately my wife Candika knew the right place to go. We walked down to Jalan Perwakilan to Akur Optics where the matter was taken care of extremely professionally. A while ago, same owner recently opened a beautiful hotel not far from there.

The Akur hotel is located on Jalan Mataram and a two minute walk from the centre of Jalan Malioboro and Yogyakarta city centre. The hotel offers a wide range of rooms, from standard to deluxe as well as a presidential suite. Sure, it is a fairly fancy hotel but it is reasonably priced compared to most hotels in Yogyakarta.


There are 28 rooms in all and you have the choice of a fan or air-conditioning. The Akur Hotel has a full compliment of what most upmarket hotels have – hot and cold water, TV, 24-hour room service, IDD phone and Fax, as well as restaurants.

Standard Room: Rp125.000
Deluxe Room: Rp185.000
Suite Balcony Room: Rp275.000
Presidential Suite: Rp300.000
