Train left on time at 7.30 am but got into a Solo an hour late. This train is old. I have had a nicer train ride from other cities in the past and the air conditioning was not working. It got warmer by the hour.

When my family and I travelled by train from Solo to Yogjakarta in 2015, the ride was... quite interesting. Although the ticket cost 20,000 idr, it was considered of a slightly superior class because everyone had seats. But our seats were near the washroom and the urine stench hung thick in the air throughout the one hour ride. The only... More

My first time riding the train in Indonesia was from Jogjakarta to Malang, an 8 hour trip that cost me 225,000 rupiahs for a seat in the Executive Train. Seats are not comfortable, foods were lousy and bathroom is very filthy. For my second train ride, from Malang to Surabaya, I purchased the Economy ticket for 40,000 rupiahs. My expectations...

The KAI has tremendously improved their quality of service. The train was clean. The food offered in the train (traditional Indonesian food) were a bit pricey, but decent. The train offers a gorgeous rice paddy field scenery, something you can't get when traveling with car, bus or plane. Highly recommended.

Take Sancaka Pagi Train to get to Surabaya and enjoy a pleasant view, this transportation offered. You'll passed mountains including Gn. Lawu, completed with paddy field along the trip. Its a good refreshment for the eyes.

We took executive train to Yogyakarta, in the beginning all seemed ok - spacious and comfy seats, but after about an hour it started to feel cold, and in another hour it was freezing. They put the air-con on such a low temperature, so that travelers would buy a blankets, that they sell on a trains and passing by every... More

Great train service but the aircon didn't half way and they refunded the ticket to us. Great service recovery from PT KAI
