Positive experience outways some problems. Borobudur is within walking distance. They arranged early direct entrance for us. The hotel is charming and elegant and the manager is knowledgeable and helpful. Staff inside the hotel is also helpful and pleasant. Pool is large with clear water with neat surroundings. Everything was clean.
Everywhere in Borobudur you will be woken up at sunrise.
We did not enjoy the food in the hotel and found it expensive.
I had a massage poolside because another guest had recommended it. She and her partner enjoyed it. I told the woman I had neck problems, but before I could stop her she was too rough with my back and neck area. i had to take a painkiller due to this. Nothing serious or lasting. Would not recommend it if you have any back or neck problems, though I have previously only had positive experiences with massages in Indonesia and Thailand.
The security people could not understand english. We called the hotel after our drive from there back to Yogyakarta. We had lost a mobile telephone in the taxi arranged by the hotel and wanted assistance to try and get it back, however it was late and the people on the phone could not speak english and were not very helpful. The manager did help and got us the name and number of the taxi driver, who said the next guest probably took the phone as he did not find it.
Highly recommend the butterfly park about 1.8 km from town. The signs to it are deceiving. Its too far to walk in the heat so take a tuc tuc.
