We asked for 2 dorm beds at 30,000rp each and were upgraded for free to a private room. Its a lovely building with a beautiful garden. It is a little run down, but we have paid a lot more for much less so far in java. The meals in the restaurant were very nice both nights we ate there. The...

On the overall, the hotel building is nice and typical and very conveniently close to the Temple of Borobudur. The rooms, although, are really shabby, especially the bathroom and the towels. If you just stay one night and ready to adapt it can be a choice. The personnel was quite kind and the breakfast very good.

At a first glance, the place was not so bad for its price — nice but a little bit weary interior, perfectly good meals in the resto... However, it was full of rats, sqeaking and scratching behind the wall lining. In the morning, we saw two of them inside the room. Disgusting...

I stayed 2N there for Vesak 2013. Booked 3 months before since I know it's gonna be full booked due to the celebration in Borobudur. I heard that it has 2-night-minimum stay policy. For the dorm room it cost Rp25,000/bed/night (the number of the beds are between 8-14). The twin bed room cost Rp30,000/bed/night with fan. Both of those rooms...

We've been there for one night. The room was shabby but because of the rainfall we were forced to stayed there. Other rooms were full because of the Buddhist celebrations. It was one of the cheapest rooms (160.000 Rhupias) so without hot water and air-con. But there has been a fan. Bathroom was dirty and dripping all the night which...

Overall, its okay and average. The hotel is a bit dimmed and was a bit shocked at first because the first room they gave us has kinda fungus on the wall, aircond doesn't work at all, and so does the light in the bathroom. After we demanded for a new room, we got a better room, and everything were perfect....

Pondok Tingal was not my first choice hotel but I have no choice since Manohara is full and Rajasa Hotel mixed up my reservation. I called Pondok Tingal to make reservation few days before we arrived and the reception informed me that only family rooms are available since the Banyumasan rooms are full (Both type of rooms offer hot shower)....

Our travel agent (Javatrails.com) booked us into this hotel because Manohara was full. And this hotel is near to Borobudur temple. Firstly, the room does not come with TV. Water from the shower is too small. And the hotel does not accept other currencies except rupiah. Neither do they provide currency exchange service. Do not stay at the ground level,...
