We stayed for two nights, which appears to be quite unusual - most people come solely for the Borobudur temple, which only takes a few hours to explore, unless you are a specialist, in which case it might take a lifetime. For a government-run hotel it's pleasant and welcoming - so unlike the Moscow Ukrainia of 1976! But it's still a government-run hotel where guests are not expected to stay for more than a night. The rooms are pleasant enough, and clean enough, and the staff are pleasant enough, the prices are reasonable enough, and the restaurant food and ambiance are nice enough, even during Ramadan. The great draw of course is the hotel's location, actually within the Borobudur temple grounds, and temple entry (plus a 1980s-style video promo) is included in the room price. You have to pay extra to join the dawn excursion, but I'm not sure that it's worth the extra money and the extra loss of sleep, as the place is quite crowded then - not the peace and quiet that you might be expecting. Normal opening hours start at 6am, which is just a few minutes after dawn, and which should be early enough for most folk. The crowds start to thin out about then, too. No extra charge, and no loss of sleep, if you want to witness sunset rather than sunrise.
