Looks great from the photos and the courtyard of the hotel is impressive - probably the best aspect of the hotel. The lobby area is strange - ever wanted to visit one of Sadaam Hussein's palaces? No air con in the lobby and lots of mosquitos with frumpy upholstery. Staff is nice but not particularly welcoming. Escort to the room... More

The best things are the stunning lobby and pool 24 hours. With high price I paid, don't expect for great breakfast because they just serve very limited breakfast buffet. The staffs are friendly and helpful and they gave me nice souvenir

Stayed 2 nights. Room was ok thanks to good aircon and comfortable bed but otherwise a bit shabby and lacking maintenance. Shower was variable in temperature and kept falling off the wall and bedding had stains. After complaining the bedding was changed and a guy looked at the shower with little effect. Food very good and they accommodated early starts... More

From the moment we pulled up and we were greeted at the door i was very impressed. The lobby is absolutely stunning. The large ceilings and chandelier. It's like a scene from the titanic. The staff were very friendly and we ate at the hotel several times because there are not a lot of restaurants around borobudur and we were... More

This is a lovely boutique hotel within the vicinity of the World Heritage site of Borobudur. The best thing is: It's within walking distance to the gate of Borobudur! and you can wake up early in the morning to catch the sunrise of Borobudur! The hotel is located in a small village, thus, expect nothing much but lovely and peaceful... More

I had a Twin Room for 2 nights with a friend and while this hotel does look tired - it has loads of charm and character! The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful and pleasant and the rooms were clean. We ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant each day which was delicious and the food was of high quality...

I stayed two nights at Saraswati and was dreading it based on the reviews here. In fact I was pleasantly surprised by how much better it was in reality. Firstly, it's beautiful, especially the inner courtyard which reminded me of riads in Morocco. Admittedly it is a bit worn around the edges but I thought this added to the charm.... More

Rooms are very dirty Sheets not clean Bed cover has never been cleaned. Room key didn't work. They could not get it to work, so had to give me the emergency key. Prayer speakers are right near the rooms, so you will be woken at 4am. However, its in a good location to visit the temple, the building is quite... More

We stayed there because we wanted to have the sunrise tour at Borobudur Temple. Saraswati is ideally located for that purpose. Not more than 5-minute walk to sunrise tour entrance and even closer to main gate for day-entrance. We arrived evening time and I must say the place looked really good in artificial lights. Our room - junior suite -... More

We stayed for at the Saraswati for 2 nights as we explored the Borobudur area. Since it was early September the huge hotel was empty - the first night I think there were only 4 guests - which was a little strange at first, especially because the property feels so grand. The hotel is old, and you can feel that... More
