Accommodation in Yogyakarta
Clean and pleasant hotel with friendly uniformed staff. There are a selection of room types, all with bathroom, ceiling fan, power, furniture and basic breakfast. You pay more for hot water, a wash basin and AC. We were able to checkout at 13:30, rather than noon by asking nicely. There seems to be permanent security on site. The friendly travel agent who hangs around the reception was excellent, and his day trips and savings for the nearby temples were genuine. Rooms from IRP95,000 including tax and breakfast.
Getting to and from Yogyakarta
Pangandaran – the easiest, quickest and most expensive way to get to Pangandaran is via bemo mini-bus. Expect to pay about IRP180,000 for a door-to-door service. Night buses get to Pangandaran at about 5am and normally stop at the PT Lotus Wisata travel agents, who are very helpful. It can be a bit inconvenient this early in the morning though.
