    Simple room but great location”

    The lobby is spectacular and the room is large if basic. The location so close to Candi Borobudur is excellent. The wifi cut out a couple of times but we'd stay there again. Both Indonesian and western breakfasts were really good.

    A grand lobby with only 18 rooms”

    The lobby is really grand but it is normally quite dark in day time. The door and ceiling of guest rooms are extremely high. The room provides you whatever you may need for a short stay. Comparing to the size of the room, the TV is really small. The pool is not really child friendly. One end is 2 m in depth. Not many guests around during my stay. One of the front desk staff (young) did not manage to book a taxi at the time I requested for my sunrise tour even though I already paid for it the night before. But another staff sent me to the temple using hotel van in the end. So I have no complaints about the arrangement but was a bit annoyed by the young staff’s performance. Breakfast is not buffet style. You may choose between American and Indonesian cuisines.

    Walking distance to Candi Borobudur”

    The room was massive and confortable. The bathroom however could use some renovations, a bit small and very dark. The staff were friendly and helpful. And the food was so so, but we chose this hotel to be able to walk over to Candi Borobudur early in the morning. Which by the way, is a total rip-off for tourists. Charging US40pp for sunrise (that we didn't see because it was cloudy and crowded with hundreds of tourists)

    Great location, better staff”

    Hotel is 5 minute away from the entrance of Borobudur. The hotel is a beautiful French colonial building with huge, high ceilings, a well maintained inner courtyard, dramatic stairs, and a good size pool. More importantly, the staff goes above and beyond to help and accommodate your needs. Did i say honest and sincere? You may also arrange transportation with the hotel in advance from/to the airport. Things that may be considered are, the lobby with the restaurant is beautiful but warm and humid with no airconditioning. The provided soap and shampoo are not the best but workable. These little things you can make do or fix by getting what you want on a local convenient store next door. There is also no elevator but staff helps you carry your bags. Overall our stay was great and i highly recommend this place.

    Ideally located, 3 minutes walk to Borobudur main gate. Sunset and sunrise access through Manohara also just a 5 minutes walk away, but Saraswati has a pool! Even though the hotel is a bit aged, it has a lot of charm. Great value!

    Beautiful, small hotel with large rooms”

    This appears to be an old building that has been re-purposed as a grand hotel. The building was gorgeous and very convenient to Borobudur, convenience stores, and places to eat. Our room had a balcony, 14' ceilings, and 10' tall doors! However, it was on the west side of the building, which was right next to a mosque, which had a loud call to prayer very early in the morning. The internet was unstable, and half of the power outlets and none of the phones we tried actually worked.

    Very good location. Only 8 mins walk to Borobudur temple. Hotel design and room is very comfortable and classic. We love the cosy setting and not too crowded. Staff speak good English and very helpful . Breakfast simple but good enough. Dinner at the cafe was nice and reasonable pricing . Should stay here for visit to Borobudur, excellent and good choice

    Design, Service, Location

    I have a perfect stay with Saraswati. The hotel was beautiful with its mediteranian design and strong ethnic style. We booked a junior suite room and its just perfect with no complaint. The service was awesome, staff were helpful and proactive. Breakfast was simple but taste was all good. Location is walking distance to Borobudur, so what else can you ask for more? I definitely will go back to Saraswati again.

    From the moment we pulled up and we were greeted at the door i was very impressed. The lobby is absolutely stunning. The large ceilings and chandelier. It's like a scene from the titanic. The staff were very friendly and we ate at the hotel several times because there are not a lot of restaurants around borobudur and we were impressed with the food. Breakfast was filling and tasty. Our room was massive as it had a lounge room in it and two toilets which was great. Room 202 if that helps . Overall a very enjoyable stay .

    location to borobudoh. safe, wifi

    Had 1 night here, in this hotel. It was huge and fairly empty. Only us and another family. Stay in borodudor if you really need to stay. Recommend not saying in Boroduboh at all, just do a day trip from Yogjakarta which is 1 hour away. No entertainment at night, all the restaurants close at 8pm, and there are no bars or nightlife there. Staying in Yogjakarta was way better!
