Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Yogayakarta has a wide range of accommodation options, from cheap guesthouses in the main backpacker strip of Sosrowijayan to five star hotels from international chains in rice fields on the outskirts of town. Jalan Prawirotaman, south of the Sultan's Palace, is the main area for midrange beds. July and August are the busiest months and some hotels will raise their prices accordingly.
