This is my third visit to Manohara Hotel. Each time I have brought family members to visit while others have gone into the temple. We had a nice light high tea of pancakes, icecream, fruit platter and coffee all at quite reasonable prices considering the amazing location. My parents wanted to stay over night but family had organized them to... More

This hotel backs onto the historical site. Easy walk especially if you are going for the sunrise special. Entry is included in the price of the room, however additional cost is charged if sunrise entry is requested. Garden is lovely and rooms are clean however nothing special for the price. Breakfast was good and held in the cafe which is... More

On site hotel for Borubudor, so for sunrise visit, most convenient. Also they intimated on their website that only hotel guests are able to get sunrise tickets well before the rest of the public/crowds arrive. Not true, there was a queue of non guests visitors buying tickets when I got to reception. One reason less to stay here, but the... More

We stayed for one night at the Manohara. We chose it because you are on the grounds of Borobudur and can walk to and from the site as many times as you like. When you check in they give you a pass to Borobudur that allows you multiple entries. The reception area is wide open and looks out onto the... More

We have been coming back to Manohara hotel since last year due to a Buddhist Festival being held annually at Borobudur. However, it is worth to mention that the quality of the hotel rooms have gone down (most probably due to wear and tear and lack of maintenance). Nevertheless, checking in at this hotel is not a bad idea if... More

Writing this review after an early morning trip to Borobudur temple. Let's go through the pros: 1. Our one night stay includes a 2-day pass to Borobudur. Paying a little bit extra goes a long way especially when you factor in the sweltering heat! 2. The hotel has its own gate to the temple, which is great coz you don't... More

Stayed at Manohara for five days as I really wanted to see all of Borobudur not just a flying visit as I had done twice much earlier in my life (1968 and 1989). Could have been longer. I walked on every possible bit of the 8th 9th century temple over the five days and it was really convenient to stay... More

Beautiful hotel on magnificent grounds, you can see the Temple from the restaurant and the food was delicious. the bedrooms were clean and comfortable and a reasonable size, there was a door between the two bedrooms which was very helpful. Having the hotel on the grounds of the Temple made the 4am start to the Temple more bearable and very... More

You don't go to the Manohara for the hotel itself - you go because it's in the grounds of the Borobudur. For that alone this has to be one of the most amazing experiences in the world. The hotel is functional with good beds, good air conditioning, a reasonable restaurant and very typically friendly and obliging Indonesian staff. I can't... More
