Jl Dr. Sutomo No. 8, Solo
T: (0271) 714 887

Tucked in a quiet side street not far from Solo Grand Mall, De Solo is beautifully designed from start to finish. Polished wood floors and rooms painted in warm colours are accented by subtle batik highlights. The rooms are of a good size, with large windows and modern bathrooms.  Downstairs, the garden cafe and bar, where guests are served their breakfast, is an oasis of shade with...

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

The leafy green gardens at Cakra Homestay make it a quiet retreat from the buzzing streets in the centre of Solo, and the swimming pool is a great way to beat the heat. Rooms are basic but clean, as are the bathrooms. Dotted with Javanese wooden decorations and furniture, the homestay fuses budget practicality together with a clear appreciation of Solo's culture and history.

Mama's Homestay
Backpacker - Under 150,000 Rp
Jl Cakra No. 33, Solo
T: (0271) 652 248

A small brown door with a little sign is all that marks Mama's Homestay, but it is a great hidden backpacker option. Close to the Karaton and in a neighbourhood full of small batik boutiques, the homestay has loads of kampung charm. The rooms are clean and quite spacious for the price. Bathrooms are shared with squat toilets only, and there are three between the five bedrooms. Breakfast... Read our full review of Mama's Homestay.

Paradise Homestay
Backpacker - Under 150,000 Rp
Kemlayan Kidul I/3, Solo
T: (0857) 283 44250

A small sign and an almost indistinguishable white door on a small laneway hides this surprisingly large homestay in a beautiful, but slightly ramshackle, historic house. The rooms are airy and bright, and each has a small table and two chairs outside. The bathrooms are clean and relatively modern considering the low cost of the rooms. Within easy walking distance from the main tourist... Read our full review of Paradise Homestay.

Owned by Ibu Sun, the powerhouse behind the popular Warung Baru diner, this homestay is clean and simple, but very welcoming. Providing good value for money, the air-con rooms are decked out with spring beds and a Western-style breakfast is included in the rate. To find the homestay, go to the warung, then the staff will direct you to the small lane tucked away...

Hotel Dana Solo
Flashpacker - 150,000 to 400,000 Rp
Jl Brigjen Slamet Riyadi No. 286, Solo
T: (0271) 711 976

First opened in 1953, Hotel Dana is well regarded in Solo for its friendly service. However, the decor of the rooms is a little dated, especially in the bathrooms. Regardless of the salmon colour theme, rooms are comfortable and clean, with minibar fridges and cable television.  Built in a former royal building and located near the city's tourism information office, batik museum and...

Istana Griya
Backpacker - Under 150,000 Rp
Jl KH Ahmad Dahlan No. 22, Solo
T: (0271) 632 667

The Istana Griya has long been a guidebook staple for Solo, however it seems that the owners have capitalised on this and upped the prices without doing any renovations or improvements.  While this budget hotel is comfortable and the staff are very friendly, the rooms look rather shabby and there are now some very competitive alternate options in the surrounding streets.  Embedded in the...
