Stayed a night here on Chinese New Year eve (7th Feb) so that I could catch the first sunrise of Chinese New Year the next morning on Borobudur.  Was allocated Room 34 and there is a small exit to Borobudur just few doors away from mine.  The room came with a porch completed with a table/chairs and swing.  The room...

We were supposed to enter the Borobudur Temple via the Manohara Hotel entrance. It was supposed to be the VIP entrance. The visit was arranged by another high end resort Mesa Stila. We had obviously pay both the resorts. The reception, Mr WaWa, was very rude and was only concern with collecting money which was already paid to Mesa Stila.... More

This hotel has private entrance to Borobudur Temple. If you want to take photo of sunrise from Borobudur, the hotel is the one to sell the ticket to get in the temple before dawn, although the ticket is not cheap. The room is very spacious even for family stay. unfortunately the extra bed price is quite expensive even for small... More

When it was new I'm sure this hotel was really exceptional. Today it is showing its age but it is still very good. The rooms have wood floors and wood paneling. The cabinets in the room could use some work as they doors do not line up properly but since we didn't need to us them that was not a... More

With its unbeatable location located right on the Borobudur campus, you can visit Borobudur as many time as you want. I was impressed with the view to Borobudur from the hotel restaurant. During the night they also turn on the light of Borobudur for the hotel guest to see, but the lighting design needs help. The hotel should have shuttle... More

This hotel is located 1 hour from the airport and we got a taxi from the airport for IDR250,000 one way. We stayed for 1 night and were given vouchers for breakfast, audio visual presentation on the history of Buddha & Borobudur and to access the temple for two days from 6am to 5pm. We had inter-connecting rooms which were... More

If you plan on doing the sunrise tour to Borobudur, this is the best place to stay. Located right in the park grounds as Borobudur, Manohara provides easy access to the UNESCO site already at 4:30 - 1 1/2 hours before it opens to the public. I watched the hotel's complimentary video (English and Indonesian) on Borobudur the night before,... More

Several people complain about the high price of this hotel. I think for US$60 including free admission to Borobodur, it's a very reasonable price. Woke up around 430am, and was inside Borobodur when it opened, got up to the top by sunrise, and didn't pay for the sunrise tour, which would have made it a bit more expensive. I'd recommend...

The professional reservation staff found me a room even though I called last minute for New Years Day. No reservations on their website but doable by e-mail. I fully recommend spending a night here to see Borobudur instead of a day trip. The price of your room gives you free access to the temple during your stay during regular visiting... More

Yes, it is not a cheap place comparing to other options you can get around Jogja, but Hotel Manohara Borobudur is located at the grounds of Borobudur and if you booked the hotel to go for Sunrise access (which you should) additional hour of sleep could mean a lot for some people. You won't need to wake up at 3AM... More
