Saraswati Borobudur
Ranked #7 of 10 Hotels in Borobudur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 29, 2008

This hotel is located about 5 minutes walk from Borobudur temple...but may as well be 5 miles away. There is nothing else in Borobudur...you are better advised to stay in Yogjakarta and make the day trip,
It is a very pleasant hotel....but very expensive and, as a result, empty. We have just spent a very odd Christmas there as the only guests...despite having made an internet booking where all the room rates for Christmas were more than double the regular rate!! We were therefore under the impression that we were vying for rooms with other eager guests....to the contrary ...we were made to feel that we had to eat every meal in an over-priced restaurant with six staff waiting on our table. We constantly felt that we still had not paid enough...even having to haggle over a fare to the airport when our driver let us down.....they were more than happy to charge us more than three times the going rate when they knew that we had just paid an extortionate room rate over Christmas in an empty hotel. Thankfully we managed to hail our own cab off the street!!


My advice is don't bother visiting this hotel...the Manohara is more than adequate if you wish to visit Borobudur and if you really want some extravagance then vist Amanjiwo or the Losari Coffee Plantation

2 of our friends, who came together with us, stayed in this hotel as Hotel Manohara was fully booked. According to them, this hotel was more expensive and the layout of the rooms was not like resort-styled. They have to take lift up to their rooms. The hotel has a very impressive main lobby. I went to this hotel for dinner and it was quite expensive and tasted average.
