I stayed 3 nights at Saraswati and totally enjoyed my stay there. The hotel is built in the style of an old colonial building and is really lovely throughout, although some of the fabrics may have lost their sheen from the tropical climate. The room was spacious and meticulously cleaned and the bathroom was large and modern. I had requested a room with a view and I could actually see Borobudur temple from the window! Wifi was strong and reliable throughout the hotel. The pool is clean and well set up with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The staff are happy to organise transport and local trips for you at a reasonable cost. You can take a pony drawn cart ride around the area and learn about the lovely village and the activities of the locals. The temple is an easy walk from the hotel. Lots of market stalls to check out on the way in and out. Straight across the road is an excellent laundry (Rumah) and a perfumery too. The village is really interesting with loads of roadside cooks whipping up lovely feasts, but the excellent quality of food at the hotel's restaurant would make it the best place to eat in the whole area. If that restaurant was in Sydney, people would be lining up to get in. If you are trying to decide whether to stay in Yogya and travel out, or stay near the temple, then choosing this hotel would be my recommendation. It really is a fascinating and welcoming area to visit.
