  • Always wanted to visit this one. As it's expected it feels magical somehow. I like it very much. The guide explanation is superb, you pay as you wish but please pay them enough. They take photos too! Knew the great spot. It's clean and well taken care of as expected. A must visit place in Jogja!
  • I came here on holiday with my husband. Tickets cost 5,000. It's a historical relic. We are very happy to visit here. The guide is very well and friendly. He can explain the details about this place. Come love Indonesian heritage!!
  • 1st time, stay at this hotel for a friend wedding, the price is really affordable after we got the promo price, the location like in the heart of the city and really easy to fond by google map, the hotel (resort look like) its a big complex of hotel with various type of room. big restaurant, children play ground and nice castle lobby Our room is very big, we even have balcony with a good view, the non carpet type room, old furniture and small TV I think other room is better.. but we love our weekend here
  • This water castle park is in the form of ancient building looks so majestic with many beautiful sight especially the bathing complex. A must visit place whenever you're in yogya. Mostly visitors took pictures in every corner of the area. There are tour guides available if you want to get a better explanation on every part of the castles. Not much of written descriptions available and also direction, so you might need to ask assistance of a guide.
  • It is a bit of a labyrinth to get through all the features of interest, since you are passing through residential areas in some parts, so I'm glad we got a guide (who really tried his best to explain things in English). The guide was happy to let us stop and take photos and didn't try to rush us through. There was one section closed off, but still worth visiting for the history.
