This is a lovely boutique hotel within the vicinity of the World Heritage site of Borobudur. The best thing is: It's within walking distance to the gate of Borobudur! and you can wake up early in the morning to catch the sunrise of Borobudur! The hotel is located in a small village, thus, expect nothing much but lovely and peaceful...

I had a Twin Room for 2 nights with a friend and while this hotel does look tired - it has loads of charm and character! The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful and pleasant and the rooms were clean. We ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant each day which was delicious and the food was of high quality...

I stayed two nights at Saraswati and was dreading it based on the reviews here. In fact I was pleasantly surprised by how much better it was in reality. Firstly, it's beautiful, especially the inner courtyard which reminded me of riads in Morocco. Admittedly it is a bit worn around the edges but I thought this added to the charm....

Rooms are very dirty Sheets not clean Bed cover has never been cleaned. Room key didn't work. They could not get it to work, so had to give me the emergency key. Prayer speakers are right near the rooms, so you will be woken at 4am. However, its in a good location to visit the temple, the building is quite...

We stayed there because we wanted to have the sunrise tour at Borobudur Temple. Saraswati is ideally located for that purpose. Not more than 5-minute walk to sunrise tour entrance and even closer to main gate for day-entrance. We arrived evening time and I must say the place looked really good in artificial lights. Our room - junior suite -...

We stayed for at the Saraswati for 2 nights as we explored the Borobudur area. Since it was early September the huge hotel was empty - the first night I think there were only 4 guests - which was a little strange at first, especially because the property feels so grand. The hotel is old, and you can feel that...

Like most visitors who want to visit Borobodur we wanted to stay near the monument for ease of getting there to see the sunrise. Based on research most websites would recommend staying at the resort within the compound - but it has very limited rooms. Given our short lead time to our trip, we were glad to have found Saraswati....

Here is the first thing you need to know about hotel options in Borobodur - there is the Aman ($$$$$$) and then there are budget hotels. In between, and a bit to the higher end is Saraswati & Manohar. The latter, you have to visit, if you want the sunset or sunrise tickets (they sell them) is huge. What we...

This hotel is housed within a beautiful building, the main entrance hall/reception lobby/restaurant looks very good as do all the outside spaces - high ceilings, beautiful tiling, flowers, water features etc. However, once you look beyond these the hotel, sadly, doesn't live up to expectation. Our room was impressive in size yet it lacked in basic amenities and while the...

We stayed one night at Saraswati hotel as we wanted to be at 4:30am to see the temple at sunrise. The hotel is just 10min away from the VIP entrance which is great. The rooms are basic with old appliances and the pool doesnt seem quite clean. We were amazed to see that there is few restaurants around. Just small...
