The Location

The INNSIDE by Meliá Yogyakarta is located in the Sleman area and just 8 minutes drive from the Adisucipto International Airport. My ride from the airport to the INNSIDE by Meliá hotel is never smoother with the hotel airport shuttle. Located between the airport and city centre, I found the hotel is a perfect hub for travellers whose love to combine their business trips with several visits to Yogyakarta’s most popular attractions, including Prambanan Temple, Borobudur Temple, Merapi volcano, Malioboro shopping centre, and Sultan Palace.

The Room

I stayed in the sleek and modern Studio Room for in total of 5 nights of two different trips visiting Yogyakarta where my family come from. The room I stayed in is the room with the Merapi Volcano view. The place is chic minimalist designed with clean white as the primary colour. The standard amenities such as flat-screen TV, hairdryer, minibar, toiletries, safe and towels are included.

Tip: The Merapi volcano view rooms will get Sun whole day, close the curtains to reduce the hot sun getting into the room.

The Ambience

The modern interior & design of the hotel, sleek and chic setting provide the comfort millennial travellers need from a property as their hub in between meetings.

The Pool

Now, we are coming to the cherry on the cake. The rooftop pool. Sky swimming pool with fantastic view of the Merapi Volcano is the best place to get you soaked up by the Sun and get your tan away during your worktripping. If the Sun is too sharp for your skin during the day, I recommend night swimming which was fun with the city lights of Yogyakarta as the main view.

Improvement: During my whole stay, there are no sunbeds available. There are outdoor sofa’s next to the pool to have a sit-down or drinks, but I don’t think this is suitable for the poolside area.

The Amenities

The amenities in the room are great. Daily free fill snacks and beverages in the minibar are such a plus point. There is an improvement in providing the type of coffee in the room. Instant coffee is never my favourite, I prefer to have a Dulce Gusto or Nespresso machine in the room. A good coffee for a good start of the day. But this is solved easily by a good coffee at breakfast.

The Restaurants

INNSIDE by Meliá Yogyakarta has three restaurants & bars. The Syndeo Restaurant is where I had my breakfast and lunch. The foods were delicious. I love the Spicy Crispy Chicken with rice. The Syndeo Lobby Lounge and Cake Shop is a right place for a quick meeting and sweets. The third one is the Sky Deck Rooftop Bar located next to the pool. When I was there, it was closed every day, probably because of the low season.

PS. The gym will provide you a good run on the treadmill. I did not recommend you to have a run on the street for your own safety due to the traffic.
