Stay | Unexpected Home at Hotel Winotosastro Yogyakarta

It was one of those cases when I originally booked in one hotel but ended up in another. When I got back to Yogyakarta coming from my Borobudur trip, I took their efficient bus system and alighted at the station near JL Parangtritis. Hotel Winotosastro already caught my impression as I was passing by especially with their promo of IDR 137,500 (US$14) for their basic room but decided to take a very long walk to a lodging at the Jalan Prawirotaman. To make a long story short, the US$10 accommodation I booked was so far at the said street, I didn’t feel comfortable and secure with the room so I decided to just look elsewhere.
