b. Ministry of Coffee
True to its name, Ministry of Coffee has very good coffee. Its high-ceilinged dining area adds to its charm. The second floor has a reading area. Ministry of Coffee also offers accommodation.

Aside from good and healthy food, a relaxing ambience is what you'll find in Hani's,thanks to its spacious lounge sofas.

Upon learning that Yogya's public transport system to and from the tourist sites is not as good as those of developed countries, I joined a private day tour group to visit Borobudur and Prambanan. I booked with Ari Tour and Travel and joined a day tour group of around 10 people. I paid only 290k rupiah. The inclusive breakfast is lousy, so i recommend you ask your hotel to pack you breakfast.
There are numerous tour operators in the side streets of Malioboro St.Just stroll along Malioboro and ask where Sosrowijayan St. is. A less hassle alternative is to book the tour with your hotel, though the cost is almost double that of the tour operators in the side streets of Malioboro.
Since Borobudur is best experienced at sunrise, the day tours usually begin at 5am.
Borobudur buddhist temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For more information on Borobudur, click on the link below.

But I must say that I was satisfied with my stay in Santika. Service was good, from the airport pick up till check out. Book the premium room, not the standard one.
