Where to stay in Solo

Solo

Solo offers a broad range of accommodation, though for budget digs don’t expect the likes of Yogyakarta’s funky guesthouses, here it’s more low-key and old-school. You’ll find most backpacker style accommodation in the lanes off Jalan Yos Sudarso. Charming traditional-styled midrange guesthouses, more upmarket options too, as well as chain-style hotels are dotted around the city. If you wish to walk to most of Solo’s places of interest choose accommodation in the city centre.

Walking distance to several of Solo’s sights, opposite Pura Mangkunegaran and metres from Pasar Triwindu Antique Market, Omah Sinten offers the traditional hospitality of old Java. On the corner of two busy roads, a spacious open-style Joglo houses part of the extensive restaurant which continues into an enclosed air-con section within the main triple storey red-brick building that...

Smack in the middle of Solo’s traditional batik district, Kampong Laweyan, Roemahkoe Heritage Hotel was built in 1938 as a private residence for a wealthy batik merchant—renovated in 2003, this preserved Art Deco building, now stylish boutique hotel is our top pick in Solo. The hotel may not have the most central city location, two kilometres west of Taman Sriwedari, but is well worth the... Read our full review of Roemahkoe Heritage Hotel.

12 Jalan Srigading II, Solo
T: (0271) 736 606

Tucked away in a quiet backstreet minutes from the urban hubbub, striking Rumah Turi cascades with vertical gardens that proliferate with life. Frogs croak and bees buzz in this inner city “jungle”, an eco-conscious boutique hotel, simultaneously exuding a calm relaxed ambience. When hotels declare themselves “eco-friendly”, we often take that information with a grain of salt, but for... Read our full review of Rumah Turi.

Don’t be put off by the glitzy exterior of The Royal Surakarta Heritage, this comfortable five-star joint offers tasteful tradition style with a modern edge. Your first indication of the “Royal Heritage” theme is the doorman in full Javanese Kraton uniform as you enter the lavish lobby decked out with Javanese antiques in true palatial style. The Royal Surakarta Heritage offers a range... Read our full review of The Royal Surakarta Heritage.

Jl Cakra II No. 15, Solo

Cakra Homestay
Flashpacker - 150,000 to 400,000 Rp
Jl Cakra II No. 15, Solo
T: (0271) 634 743

Cakra Homestay is nothing if not memorable, and it will appeal to the traveller well familiar with the standards (and quirks) of travelling in Indonesia. The sprawling compound, some 200 years old we were told, and set in Kampung Batik Kauman was originally a batik factory which transformed into a budget hotel after factories were banned from Solo’s downtown area. What you see today is a... Read our full review of Cakra Homestay.

8–10 Jalan Dr. Sutomo, Solo

De Solo Boutique Hotel & Resto is a cosy friendly midrange-style hotel at flashpacker prices and depending on the room, can be a great deal. Conveniently located in the northwest of the city centre, De Solo occupies two buildings—an older, but characterful bungalow comprising the reception and restaurant along with a handful of guest rooms and a modern four-storey building with the bulk of...

Pak Mawardi Homestay 11 Jalan Empu Panuluh, Kemlayan Kidul, Solo
T: (0271) 633 106

In the back lanes of Solo’s backpacker-ville, The Westerners appears like a veritable fortress with its high grey wall and bolted entrance, but beyond the barricades, you’ll find a friendly family-run homestay (don’t worry they have a doorbell!). Within the paved compound, the family reside in a charming colonial cottage, and guest rooms are housed in modern somewhat bare-bones... Read our full review of The Westerners.

Just want a clean room, comfy bed, decent shower and good location? Red Planet Solo is just another faceless chain hotel, and what it lacks in charm it makes up for with its squeaky clean rooms that we thought looked brand new (they were four years old at the time of research in January 2018). Located 500 metres north of Taman Sriwedari walking distance to several local sights, the red and... Read our full review of Red Planet Solo.
