Gallery Hotel Kresna Wonosobo is a four star hotel which is a reincarnation of the Grand Hotel Dieng, that was established in 1917.
Grand Hotel Dieng formerly run by a family from the Netherland and as a stopover for Europeans especially Dutch who will visit Dieng plateau. In the Dieng Plateau besides its natural beauty can also be encountered any Hindu temples from the 7th century. Enshrinement complex was first discovered by Dutch archeologist HC Cornelius in 1814. At that time the enshrinement areas still inundated with water, and in 1856 the temple complex was dried and then reported to Holland. Since then Dieng attract people to visit.
This opportunity is apparently read by JW Muthert by establishing Grand Hotel Dieng. Several well known figures who had spent the night here include: Princes Astrid of Belgium Twice, The King of Siam Prince and Princes Rabibadhana, Charley Chaplin, Mr. Sukarno Indonesia’s first President, Her Royal Highness Sirindhorn of Thailand, Mr. Yudhoyono today’s Indonesia President etc.
One day JW Muthert family went to the Netherland and at the same time broke the Second World War so they never return back to Indonesia. Until now almost a century we are still witnessing the splendor of Grand Hotel Dieng. The floor and ceiling of the restaurant is still original and its Gebyog has been hundreds of years old. Also we can still see some bullet holes war time because this hotel was once the headquarter of the Dutch army.
At certain times at the lobby area we could hear the Gamelan music from the 18th Century “Kyai Mega Mendung”. It is said that formerly played Gamelan is to call rain. In the corner of the pool is still standing a strong tower that use to serve as a tower or hot water furnace. We also have an antique bed room from 1879 and if we walk along the corridors of the hotel, we can enjoy hundreds of beautiful paintings of the famous painters in this country.
