Surakarta (or “Solo” as it is often called) is one of Indonesia’s most historically important cities. Together with its sister city, Yogyakarta, Solo traces its illustrious past back to the great sultanate of Mataram, which flourished from the 16th to 18th centuries A.D. Through the years, Solo has been witness to some of the most important events in the country’s history.
Situated within walking distance of the hotel, the world- famous and visually stunning Danar Hadi Batik Museum houses a superb collection of antique and royal textiles from Java, China and beyond. Laweyan Batik Village – the only one of its kind in the world – is a five-minute drive away. Further afield, a tour of the magnificent Surakarta Palace, the seat of the historically important Surakarta Sunanate, is a must for every visitor.
