This is the best place to stay with a family when exploring Borobudur. Yes, there is a hotel on the grounds of the temple, but they don't have a pool. And having a pool is a necessity when traveling with kids. The food here was excellent and inexpensive. We enjoyed lunch by the poolside each day. Has this hotel seen... More

The hotel is across the street from the entrance to Borobudur. The staff is very willing to help to the best of their ability. We left very early in the morning and they kindly provided a light breakfast to take with us as well as souveniers for our children. Also the pool was lovely. The building itself is quite grand,...

Ok, the proximity of Borobudur Temple is definitely an advantage, The rooms with high ceilings looked quite nice. However, the biggest impression I have of this hotel is that it wasrun down. The swimming pool was absolutely dirty and the parasols were torn off. The aircon in the rooms was quite noisy. The staff could hardly speak any English and... More

My partner and I spent one night in Yogyakarta during a week long trip to Indonesia. Unlike the previous times I had been there, we decided to stay at Saraswati to be close to the reason we were there which was Borobudur. The location was great for that as it's only a few minutes walk to the entrance of the... More

I had a quick visit with some friends last month and only stayed at Saraswati 1 night. The location is very good as you can walk to the Borobudur Temple within 5-7 mins. Hotel is not too big so our group can enjoy the swimming pool during the afternoon feeling like we are at a private villa. Food and service... More

Nice hotel, shame about the 4am wake up calls thanks to the neighbouring Mosque!! Seriously, the calls to prayer were VERY loud and long at that time of day!! Whilst I appreciate Indonesia is a Muslim country, had I known the proximity to the Mosque, I may have stayed elsewhere. Food was ok, not great and room stank of next... More

In that area, Saraswati is definitely one of the better hotels to stay in. Although the first evening we checked in, we had problems with the safety deposit box and the bed, as soon as we passed the feedback on to the management, they got it fixed the very next day! Which was great! The in-house massage service was also... More

Close enough to walk to Borobudor temple which is 5-10 mins away, so a great option for the sunrise tour. Bring a torch though. The room we stayed in was huge and done up in a colonial european style, with free wifi a welcome bonus (though signal strength a little low from my room). There is a nice pool and... More

We stayed there to catch the sunrise tour for borobudur. Only 5 min walk to borobudur. The room is big enough even after fitting am extra bed. Room can be stuffy, and thin wall so you can hear people nextdoor. Surprisingly they have a nice little pool with really good Javanese message at reasonable price. Breakfast choice is limited.

I stayed 3 nights at Saraswati and totally enjoyed my stay there. The hotel is built in the style of an old colonial building and is really lovely throughout, although some of the fabrics may have lost their sheen from the tropical climate. The room was spacious and meticulously cleaned and the bathroom was large and modern. I had requested... More
