Rated 1 out of 5 by George20 Will never stay at this hotel anymore
Unfortunately all other hotels in Yogyakarta were full during the time I visited Yogya (29 - 31 August 2014). So I had no choice but staying at this Sheraton.
The rooms are really old, door handle of the bathroom is loose, balcony door is difficult to open, water in the shower is not stable.
When we wanted to go for breakfast we were stopped by the lady at the entrance of the coffee shop because I had to sign a bill for my son's extra breakfast charge. I think she could have easily put us on a table first and present the bill after. Money is not my issue, but service needs to come first.
I hope I do not need to stay at Sheraton Yogyakarta anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by agalm69 Expectations exceeded
I stayed with my wife and son at the Sheraton Mustika in August.
I had some concerns on noise due to the airport proximity but found this no issue at all - even in the very nice outdoor/pool area.
The staff was very nice and helpful - they even arranged a birthday surprise for my wife including singing. Every small wish was promptly taken care of. Great, thanks.
Though the hotel is off the main city it is conveniently located for Prambanam visits that can even be done by bicycle. They also offer a courtesy shuttle to/from the airport (<10min) and the city (<>30 min).
I would definitely stay there again. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lightinsky Excellent Service
I was very touched by the excellent attention that the hotel staff had given to my wife and I on our recent trip. The staff was very proactive in addressing our needs, even when we did not specifically request it. They were attentive to every detail, from assisting us to book tours to keeping a look out for our transportation.
This level of service at Sheraton Yogja far exceeds the already high level of service of other SPG hotels I have stayed in.
The staff should be commended for their excellent service.

despite the all the good rating given above, our stay was anoyyed by the Harley Davidson group that also stayed at your hotel in the same days we stayed.
we were distrubed by horrible noise of their motorbikes those parked around the lobby in early morning even before 5 o'clock and had to call your recepcionist asking to stop them.
this inconvinience countinued happened during they stay..
please make a carefull attention for such thing in the future should you have such reservation from the kind of group.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JRAPH89 Good option in Yogyakarta
- location: quiet and actually not so far from the city center
- reception & concierge: useful service, efficient taxi service, possibility to rent tours at good prices directly from the hotel
- breakfast: excellent !
- club lounge: the service is good, however the furnitures / atmosphere do not make you want to stay long in the lounge
- rooms: quality of furnitures and overall look has to be improved
- swimming pool: not convenient to actually swim

Rated 4 out of 5 by LaiCW The hotel layout is great but....
But old. I strongly recommend a renovation to interior. The room I stayed in has lagoon access, but that is almost not "swimmable" because the level of algae growth in the pool. A tad disappointed since we booked this for lagoon access.
Spa treatment was fantastic. The staff were also professional - service is impeccable.

The positive points of the property:
- close to the airport
- complimentary shuttle service, both ways
- very nice staff at the 6th floor lounge.
- some good staff also at the front desk.
- some very good rates, especially during the Ramadan period.
My wife had booked a massage at the Spa, following the 25% off offer that we were given at check-in for massages, except for the French massage that had a offer for 200,000 Rps Net price.
When she completed the massage, she was told that they were no discount, but they called the front desk who said that they would give 15% off.
When my wife requested a copy of the charge she had signed, she was told that it was not possible.
When we went together at the front desk, we were told that the discount was in fact 10% off, then that there was a discount of 25% at the Spa (for Platinum or SPG members?) but ..... not for massages (definitely not the version that we were told upon check-in).
The massages are really inexpensive at the hotel, but I think that the hotel should be committed to respect what they offer.
I made that point clear and they agreed to credit the difference.
The plan was to take advantage of the Spa several times during our stay, but the bad experience (the billing, not the massage) turned us off and we were not willing to go through more arguments.
Bottom line: if you receive an offer verbally, ask it in writing, with a name on the note.
Noise on the room upstairs. One night, we were not able to sleep during a good part of the night due to the noise in the room above ours. I first called and asked that the upstairs guests should be called to be reminded that they were other guests below their room. After waiting for about an hour, we were getting more upset as there were no change with the disturbance, so I called again and asked to speak to the manager on duty. He said that he came to our floor and did not hear any noise. I told him that he should have gone to the room upstairs and he confirmed that he would do so. After the 2nd call, the noise did not stop one bit. I guess that, at one point, we were able to finally fall asleep.
My confirmed reservation was for 6 nights at the Pay 2 nights Get one Free rate.
First, the 2 free nights were billed at a rate 50% higher than the 4 paid nights.
Then, only after I opened my computer, to show the type of rate (Buy 2 Get 1 free) that had been confirmed, all 6 nights, including the 2 free ones, were billed at the same rate as the 4 paid nights. I was asked to forward them the email of my confirmation.
It took a third bill to get the errors were corrected. The check out was a 30 minutes process, while the car was waiting to drive us to the airport.
I complained that I had receive any apologies for the repeated errors and I am not understanding how their system cannot record properly a reservation booked on spg.com.
Unlike at most Starwood properties that I stay at in S.E. Asia, you do not see the management walking around and introducing themselves to the staff. One exception was the Director of Sales that was having her breakfast in the lounge. After hearing me complained to the staff about the previous night, she introduced herself and asked me for more details and I asked her to switch room if the guests were staying more in the upstairs room. I also asked her to find out what happened to my request during the night. I had not head from her but was able to see her later; she said that the guests were moving out and I reminded her that I would have liked to know why the noise kept going on after my calls. No news from her or other supervisors afterwards.
If the management does not fix the open spaces between the windows, they might as well change the name of the property to Sheraton Mostiko, as, although I have asked sprays in the room during the bed turndown services (which was missed a couple of times), I had unwanted guests flying in the bedroom every night and a bunch of bites to prove to myself that I was not dreaming.
