They charge US$110 Per night and claim to be an International Boutique Hotel. That's where it ends. There is no cable TV, no phone directory, don't even tell you what number for reception, no room service, not even a book telling you the hotels services or facilities. No fire evacuation instructions. The wifi did not work, and the food is... More

The atmosphere during the celebrations of Vesak Day were magical. If you get a chance to visit Borobudor during Vesak Day, do it. The people here make the place great. Because we booked last minute, our first choice of hotel was fully booked, so we made do. It was okay. The sheets were clean. The shower was in disrepair and... More

As mentioned in many previous reviews, this hotel has a dramatic lobby with its high ceilings, open air seating area, lots of light and an old colonial flavor. We stayed overnight on our way to Denpasar from Jakarta. The taxi ride from the airport we negotiated down to Rp. 250,000 and we enjoyed our driver so much we retained his... More

Lovely lobby, rooms and compound. Security is great. Staff are polite & meticulous. 10 min walk to Borobudur - easy. Plenty of street stalls for food, conveniently located outside of the hotel. Will stay here again.

Stayed here for a night in Feb 2013. Excellent location, fantastic* room, literally right next to Borobudur - just about 5 mins walk from Manohara Resort where Borobudur lies. Friendly and smiley staff at all times + very secure establishment. Free WiFi and nice breakfast. Supervisor Bambang was rather shy and quiet, but he was exceptionally nice, kind, and helpful....

Saraswati was much better than I expected, so a pleasant surprise. The hotel is grand and elegant and revels in an atmosphere of old colonial style. It never seemed busy when we were there (during the New Year holiday) so it felt like we had the place to ourselves for much of the time. The staff were discreet and helpful... More

We planned to do the sunrise tour of Borobudur and the staff was very friendly. He spoke good English and was very helpful. Guests staying at Saraswati receives a discount for the sunrise tour. Borobudur was approx. 10 min walk from the hotel. We were very impressed by the large room size and the high ceilings. The down side was... More

A beautiful hotel in Javanese style, lovely rooms and lovely local breakfast. Very close to the entrance to the Borobudur park. No fault apart from the shower curtains were a bit manky and there is no hairdryer. Book a ground floor room if you have problem with stairs.
