I loved this place! highly recommended
Location - its on the side of a mountain, the drive up is really steep. It has views of Borobudur and on a clear day there is Mount Sumbing volcano looming up in the distance. Being 5 mins away from Borobudur helps with the sunrise tour, you can leave as late as 0430!
Service - all i can say is superb. We asked if they had a certain kind of indonesian crackers and the next day were given a container each! Staff are so helpful -although English is not their first language, they do try their very best. The level of service is comparable to the 5 star hotels that you find in Jakarta, or even better. I can not praise the staff more.
Rooms - The rooms have no AC - so it can be extremely hot if you are thinking of taking a nap in the afternoon. We found the pool was more inviting. I did not like the outdoor shower and basins as i constantly got bitten by rather large menacing mosquitoes, while in the shower. Although insect repellent was provided i was bitten at all times of the day.
A downside to this place is all the steps - not ideal for people with mobility issues.
