We wanted to stay in Manohara Hotel because it's right next to Borobudur Temple. However, it was full, so we decided to stay at Saraswati instead, which is a ten-minute walk to the temple grounds. LOCATION It's a ten-minute walk to Borobudur temple. SURROUNDINGS There was nothing particularly interesting about the road the hotel was on. It was quiet and... More

Of course the spiritual experience of visiting Prambanan and Borobudur is far more exhilarating than the hotel stay but proximity matters in Indonesia and Hotel Sawaswati is reasonably close to the Borobudur complex - a short walk of about 10 minutes. The rooms are large, typically suite style with wonderful views of the garden, pool and even of Borobudur in... More

We chose to stay here as we wanted to be close to the temple for the sunrise tour - this was absolutely incredible and the hotel is in a perfect location for that. Whilst it was a little over priced, and one of the more expensive places we stayed whilst travelling, it is a great hotel. The staff were super... More

We stayed here ust for one night. The booking was through Agoda. I was traveling with my son and my cousin and his family. We had booked 2 rooms. They gave us connected rooms without asking, so was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself is a smallinsh, probably an old time house converted to a hotel. The rooms are decently... More

It's a quaint old bungalow converted into a small but very comfy hotel. It's not far from the temple gates and is pretty serene in the evenings. There's a spa area too by the pool and my better half rates it as good, Value for $ accommodation doesn't have to be uncomfortable and this place is a testament to that!

We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel for its old-style charm and comfort. Our room was huge, yet cozy. The breakfast was okay. We had a modestly priced oil massage in the gazebo by the pool and liked the al fresco sensation of that. This is a beautiful boutique hotel in a superb location within easy walking distance from Borobudur and with... More

Imagine you are walking (with tropical heat outside) on cool tiled floors, with marble and chandeliers, teak ceilings and friendly service. There's a lovely swimming pool. Bowls of frangipani and ylangylang flowers are in the arcades. Best of all you are in close walking proximity to one of the famous World Heritage Sites, the eighth century vast Buddhist stupa of...

We stayed locally in Borobudur but we visited for lunch. It is very elegant, grand but dated. The staff spoke a very good english and was very professional. We had Fried Shrimps, Special Fried Noodles with Papaya Juices for 405.000 Rupiah for two of us. Free Wi-Fi. Beautiful food, polite stuff and very clean toilet, we would highly recommend it!

A really relaxing place not far from the temple gates. This is an old style hotel with high ceilings and old furniture. A nice garden for relax and bikes to hire for cycling around. Everything reminds to the old colonial time. Good breakfast and helpful concierge. The only problem is the early singing of the muezin in the nearby mosque.... More
