Two of us (me and my friend) went to Purwokerto for travelling. We never go to Purwokerto before, then we decided to find the affordable hotel but good quality through the tripadvisor review. Our choice is Hotel Besar. Our first impression, antique and classic exterior design, located in the main street and very strategic. Only 10 minutes from train station.... More

Well preserved and clean. Love the old architecture of the main building and the public area furniture + decoration + the inner courtyard which brings in fresh air and natural light. Room interior (stayed in Zirconia room) seems to be modernised, except the bathroom. The sanitary ware needs to be upgraded. Nice staff!

Sits right at the center of town,close to the main road,it's an old small hotel but it's well maintained.The rates started at 130k without aircon or 230k with aircon plus a modest breakfast but it's better to ask rooms no 7 to 14 since it's less noisy compared with their bigger rooms located close to the lobby,they had no restaurant...
