You can pay top dollar for a hotel with views of Taman Tirta Gangga, or you can stay here for very little.

When you pay top dollar you get a nice room, and here — well it’s cheap.

The three hot-water “good rooms” that overlook Taman Tirta Gangga were occupied when we visited, but we were promised they were “much better” than the view-less rooms we saw. One is rented long-term, so someone obviously thinks so. Actually, they did look okay from outside, with comfortable solid wooden chairs and tables on the veranda, and some ornate touches on the trims — and there’s that great view. You could save some cash by not even visiting Taman Tirta Gangga — it’s in front of your room for free. The rooms we did see are their cheapest — and they are what you would expect for the price — small bare-bones basic tiled rooms with a standard fan and cold-water bathrooms. Cleanish, but old, scuffed and stained. The bed is good and solid, and sheets are clean and white.

One thing that appeals is the wacky style — psychedelic mosaic tiles and crazy pyramids with organic, wavy and uneven paths — be careful not to sprain an ankle! Staff are very friendly and helpful. There’s free WiFi and breakfast is included and can be served at the quirky furniture overlooking Taman Tirta Gangga.

For a budget traveler it’s not too bad, and there’s the opportunity to get some good Instagram shots of the off-the-wall decor and Taman Tirta Gangga. Family-run Rijasa Homestay opposite Taman Tirta Gangga have slightly better rooms, and great views of the surrounding rice fields.
