Our experience staying at Saraswati Borobudur was wonderful from the moment I made the booking. Very helpful staff member name Bambang wrote me an email and provided great information about the accommodation as well as Borobudur Temple sight which was the main reason for our stay, giving us all the timings and tickets prices and gave us great advice regarding...

I didn't stay in the hotel but went there for dinner twice over a weekend. Service staff were really friendly and prompt. The spring rolls and oxtail soup were particularly excellent, with subtle tastes, nice presentation and sizable portions, all for a reasonable price.

We only stayed here for one night to visit the Borobudur temple the next day. Dinner in the hotel was ok, our room was quite large and we were very early at the temple (recommend as it gets very busy from 7 a.m.). Back at the hotel we asked if could take a swim in the pool before having breakfast.... More

We booked in for one night so we could be close to Borobudur and do the sunrise entry. The Saraswati was great. The manager was so helpful, he organized a guide and voucher for entry. That worked well. There is mosque close by so early morning wake up fitted in with early rising but might be a problem if you... More

Excellent resort very helpful staff and location cannot be beat for access literally within walking distance. Great amenities like pool and dining. The rooms need a little modernizing but nicely eclectic. Highly recommended if you want to see the Borobudur temple

I was apprehensive before staying here given its ranked #7 of 9. But this place honestly surprised me in a positive way! There's not really many mid range hotels near Borobudur - either really high end or guest houses. Saraswati sits in the middle - nice rooms in an elegant colonial styled house. Service is good for arranging transport to... More

It is ok hotel. Nothing much, very simple & plain. Good plain hotel . Quite near to temple but not insde the temple area where there is another renowned hotel is located. I will suggested any one who has come to visit borobudur temple then one should stay in that hotel not in this.

I slept with my fams for 2 nights. It was great. Nice build, hospitality, and facility. But, I expect more with breakfast menu and better service from the waiter/ess. We have to ask first if we want to get something, even it's just a glass of water. (Huft) Over all, it's nice. :)

The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to the Borubudur Temple. Their manager Bambang was very helpful. He coordinated with a tour and transport company to make the arrangements for us during our 5-day visit to this part of Indonesia. The hotel itself is a beautiful Dutch-colonial inspired property with high ceilings, open hallways, and spacious rooms. They have... More

I loved the feel of the hotel as I walked in, very very good location to Borobudur, this is a good alternative to Manohara hotel if that has no more rooms available. It's less than 5 mins away from Borobudur and is near mini mart's and a food street. However, if you are intending to visit Borobudur sunrise tour, it... More
