    Ambarrukmo is one of the historical districts in Yogyakarta. In the 19th century, King Hamengkubuwono VI built Residence Royal Palace, 1857-1859 for the first time. The place served as a meeting with the Governor General of the Dutch East Indies as well as a resort for the royal family.

    In 1895-1897, the palace was renovated by King Hamengkubuwono VII and functioned as a meeting place with the Kings.

    The hotel itself was opened in 1966 as an integral part of the Royal Residence Ambarrukmo Palace and became one of the luxurious hotels in Yogyakarta in the period. The first president of Indonesia, Ir. Soekarno and King Hamengkubuwono IX founded this hotel using improvement funds from the Japanese government.

    Royal Ambarrukmo Residence is listed as a National Heritage building, protected by Law No. 5, 1992. It is also considered as ‘Kedaton’ which means the Royal Palace or the residence of the King. As a Residence Royal Palace, there is also a miniature model of the Sultan Grand Palace. All the decorative elements of the pavilion, courtyard, gate and trees, has similarities to the palace, containing a deep symbolic meaning.
