    Great location for temple. Very nice and friendly staff. Breakfast was fantastic. Nice shared area with lots of seating and tables. Rooms were ok, have everything you need. Minor ant problem, but wasn’t a big deal and didn’t bother us. I’d highly recommend this place for the price.

    Location, just 5 minutes away to Borobudur Temple. Easy access to Bus Station (1 km away), and various food stalls/restaurant nearby. The bathroom is awesome, you can relax in the bath-tub, feel like staying in a 5 stars hotel.

    The guest house is clean and pleasant but the bathroom ventilation gives off an awful stink, plus room air-conditioner wasn't working well and heater wasn't working too. Basic and cramp standard rooms. But the one thing that makes Cempaka Guest House a success is the staff team - Ama, Ro and Hoya.

    Tranquility”

    Location, Food Location

    We arrived late and the hotel was in total darkness - there was an outage around the area then! We were totally unprepared for that and was a little worried - but when the staff puts on the generator, we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are nice and the verandah gives a cosy touch. As we are a large family - we took 5 rooms! - it gives a nice homey feel. Borobodur was just within walking distance from the hotel - and the atmosphere was just right!

    We arrived late and were surprised at the entrance leading to the hotel - it was like an unkempt garden with no real signages and no lights - almost like an abandoned site! When we got shown to the rooms, we were pleasantly surprised. Though small, the rooms have windows and the verandah was very nice. The staff was very accommodative

    Friendly staff, opposite the site, quiet and pleasant

    The location is stay away from the road 100 meters surrounding by the palm tree, so it is very quiet and pleasant environment. The staff very helpful speaking English very good. I book the standard room but the manager upgrade the better room without extra charge.

    Food

    Rooms are nice, Usap? the guy who met us was great and helped organise our time there, food was really nice and cheap, we did our tour with Anna, organised through the guest house, and she was amazing. Not the cheapest of places but perfect if you want to see sunrise at the temples

    Wonderful place and close to Borobudur”

    room, staff, distance

    I stayed for one day at the guest house to see Borobudur. It is a few minutes walk to the temple so it is convenient when joining the Sunrise tour. Budi helped a lot, showing me pictures of the places nearby and explaining them to me. I didn't have enough time though but I will be back next time to visit the sites he mentioned. Overall, it was a good stay. Hot shower, big bed, clean bathroom, internet (though it doesn't reach the rooms), and proximity to the temple.

    Perfect to visit Borobudur”

    Room small, although with comfortable bed. Really nice space outside to chill and eat. Staff 5 stars, not perfect English but they really try and care about you. They organise trips to borobudur sunrise through a resort, taking you by motorbike to the entrance, which is really helpful. It is a cheap and cute option to visit Borobudur.

    Good rooms very close to the temple!”

    The rooms were good but a little small. But is was clean and the bed was good! It's very close to the Borobudur temple, a 10 minute walk to the entrance I think. They also rent a scooter or bicycles. We went to the Merapi vulcano by scooter. Breakfast was very good! Fried rice or fried noodles! Staff was helpfull, but their English was not good, so a little bit clumsy sometimes.

    Refreshing calmness”

    The building & the room makes you feel like living in a traditional Javanese house. The deluxe room has a bathtub! For the price, it really exceeded my expectation. The girl that was in charge during out stay was very nice. She made us very tasty fried rice for our breakfast. The location is very strategic, only approx. 5minutes walk to Borobudur temple. Perfect if you want to get there first thing in the morning. This hotel also provide bicycle rental.

    feeling at home!”

    The guest house is hidden from the main road. if you come by car you need to go through a weird property (go till the end, its all worth); if you arrive walking you can take the paved way on the side. lovely place, quiet and walking distance from the temple. at night a little geko came to say hi and some ants walked during day. this is almost the jungle and i'm cool with it. the rooms aren't huge but we came here to explore the area, not stay indoors. otherwise you can hang out in the common areas. TV and wi-fi work great. The staff arranged a guided tour (worth the money!), did our laundry for a small fee and pampered us each morning with a traditional breakfast! FYI there's a tiny graveyard right behind the building ; avoid if you're scary; visit if you're brave! i would definitely recommend this place!

    little paradise”

    The site is a bit hidden, go through the parking lot and you will arrive (if you go walking theres a paved path on the side). You're surrounded by nature and birds will wake you up in the morning. The place is clean and confy; some little geckos and ants might show up but it's expected in a tropical region. The staff helped us organize a guided tour and made sure we were always ok: breakfast in the morning, umbrellas and clean clothes. i would certainly recomend this place!

    Location, location, and location

    My main reason to choose this Guest House is the location, which is very close to Borobudur Temple as I participated in Borobudur 10K Marathon. The event started 6 am in the morning. The Guest House needs to improve the cleanliness of the room, especially the toilet.

    Location, helpfull staff, friendliness

    While the room was very basic, the staff was amazing and helpful. They were able to arrange all of our excursions and transportation. A staff member even took us on a bike tour of the outer villages in the area. The onsite menu is limited but staff were happy to arrange delivered food for us. The location is excellent for sunrise visits to the temple. We highly recommend this guest house and will use it again if we return.

    Far from the expected standard.”

    Staff, location and breakfast.

    We definitely had an ok stay there BUT quality-price is far from the expected in Indonesia. We have stayed in much better places for 200-250 and those places were also located next door from main sights. We had to ask for things to get them but the staff proved very nice and helpful making our stay nice and pleasant.
