Rumah Mertua is a lovely, small, peaceful oasis in a busy city. All of the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. The small hotel is tastefully decorated with local Javanese furniture and art. Guests gather around the pool or in the beautifully-landscaped courtyard and small open-air restaurant in friendly atmosphere. We enjoyed talking to guests, mostly European and Latin American - we were the only guests from the US during our stay. You can choose many options for the included breakfast, we loved the banana pancake, and they have a full menu for other meals or snacks. We took advantage of their laundry service (excellent) and a driver and car (a safe driver with excellent English) at very reasonable prices. The only drawback is that the hotel is a bit far from the center of activities in town, so we had to rely on taxis, but that also made for a prettier environment and mostly residential neighborhood. Rooms are small, but the shared areas are so inviting that it works well for most guests.
