I am planning on visiting my good friend K who lives in Singapore in September. We normally like to go for a side trip some where and this time will probablyy have about 4 nights. We have tossed around a few places and Lombok and Yogyakarta seem to be the hot favourites. (with Yogya being numero uno!) anyhow, i was a little concerned there wouldn't be enough to do to keep us busy for 4 nights but Kathie has somewhat alleyed those fears with some suggestions SO, what do you think of this:

Arrive midday Sat (from SP) thinking of staying at the Phoenix? would like somewhere in town so we can walk to local restuarants. my plan was to stay here for all 4 nights?? (we could fly into Solo from SP but the AA flight to Yogya is much cheaper) - what do you all think about Yogya as a base? )- spend afternoon wondering around Yogyakarta?
Sun- Sunrise/day time visit at Borobudor - maybe lunch at Amanwijo? (cant afford to stay here this trip)
Monday - afternoon trip to Prambanan temple and then stay for the dance show in the evening?
Tues - ???
Wed - leave (v early) for flight back to Singapore

I would like a bit of relaxing time in there but do think we should be able to do that Sunday afternoon/Monday morning. Do you think the above sounds like a good plan,
Any suggestions for Tuesday? what have I missed? (we do like to tour the temples etc but i don't want 4 days of just temples-K and I like to explore local areas, eat good food and of course shop!
Does anyone have details of a good guide and driver who we could use for the days at the temples.
Is the Phoenix a good place to stay?
Appreciate all suggestions.
