Twin hotels offer a temple gateway
AccorHotels has expanded in the Javanese city of Yogyakarta, opening twin hotels in a shared location.
The Grand Mercure Yogyakarta Adi Sucipto and ibis Yogyakarta Adi Sucipto made their debut in May and are positioned to serve visitors to sites including the world heritage-listed temple of Borobudur, one of Indonesia’s greatest ancient landmarks.
Located close to the city centre and its Sultan’s Palace, the properties are integrated with shared facilities including a swimming pool, meeting rooms and a fitness centre.
The Grand Mercure has 305 rooms and has been designed in a style that evokes Borobudur through elements including mosaics and ornaments. It offers an executive lounge for business travellers, dining at Purple Restaurant and a grand ballroom for up to 700 people.
The adjacent ibis Yogyakarta Adi Sucipto provides an economy option with 144 rooms, dining at ibis Kitchen Wok and a 24-hour bar that also serves light meals.
