It is ok hotel. Nothing much, very simple & plain. Good plain hotel . Quite near to temple but not insde the temple area where there is another renowned hotel is located. I will suggested any one who has come to visit borobudur temple then one should stay in that hotel not in this.

I slept with my fams for 2 nights. It was great. Nice build, hospitality, and facility. But, I expect more with breakfast menu and better service from the waiter/ess. We have to ask first if we want to get something, even it's just a glass of water. (Huft) Over all, it's nice. :)

The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to the Borubudur Temple. Their manager Bambang was very helpful. He coordinated with a tour and transport company to make the arrangements for us during our 5-day visit to this part of Indonesia. The hotel itself is a beautiful Dutch-colonial inspired property with high ceilings, open hallways, and spacious rooms. They have... More

I loved the feel of the hotel as I walked in, very very good location to Borobudur, this is a good alternative to Manohara hotel if that has no more rooms available. It's less than 5 mins away from Borobudur and is near mini mart's and a food street. However, if you are intending to visit Borobudur sunrise tour, it... More

Came here with family for a sunrise tour of Borobudur and it couldn't have been better. The ambiance of the lobby and courtyard was amazing, along with the nicely placed bowls of flower pedals. Mr. Bambang is very accommodating in booking all of the tours we went on. (The "andong" ride was better than I expected!) Quick to respond to... More

Within walking distance of the Borobudur temple, this is a modern hotel built in the grand Dutch colonial style. It has high ceiings, teak furniture, tiled floors and and an enormous swimming pool. The Indonesian breakfasts are excellent and you can order picnic style lunches for your Borobudur excursion. They provided an English speaking driver for out of town excursions... More

Amazing building, a sense of old colonial luxury..what a serene opulent place to stay! Thoroughly enjoyed everything about it, no detail forgotten, best bed and linens I've ever had for such a cheap price..everywhere in the hotel there is another surprise waiting to be discovered, to me it was luxury on a budget. Staff were amazing, food was good, spotlessly... More
