Stayed here in August 2018 for a whopping 7 nights total. People, do not ever spend 7 days in 1 city - that's too long. Anyway, Metro Living Ikaka is fine. You're on this page cuz you want something budget. The pictures shown for the rooms are pretty much what you get. Simple and functional. Wi-fi is at times wonky but overall still good; at least you can use it in your room and not have to go to the lobby for it. Staff is helpful, like most Indonesians. They don't understand you completely but once the message is delivered, they try their best to offer help. I am grateful for that. Although it's really quite tough to communicate at times.
When I stayed here with my friends, the overall compound was still in the midst of construction. Therefore the completed infrastructure was still pretty clean; for example not much stains and dirt in the toilet. However, there are no basins in ALL toilets as of August 2018. You never realise how important a basin/sink is until you have to live without one. But apart from that, the toilet is GENERALLY all right. The toilet flush is good and operational, shower head is adequate too - although at times hot water is non-existent at night time. The A/C is good too, no hiccups.
Metro Living Ikaka is situated 15-min walk away from the main Malioboro shopping street. The location is all right. Honestly this place is more suitable for young people travelling with friends on a budget and not so much for a family with elderly and kids.
