CONFERENCE VENUE

SLTU-2016 will be held in the historic Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta, located in the heart of Yogyakarta, the cradle of Javanese civilization. The legendary Malioboro Street is just nearby, while the world heritage Borobudur and Prambanan temples are only an hour drive.

The Phoenix, this prestigious hotel built in 1918, commissioned by a rich Chinese merchant, Kwik Djoen Eng, for his private residence. Through the ensuing decades, the property changed hands a number of times, until a Dutch caretaker turned it into Pensioner Hotel. It became a resident hotel, up to the Japanese occupation in 1942. After the war it was the official residence of the Chinese consulate. Then, it became a hotel again in 1951.
