We stayed at the Saraswati for the first two nights of a week long art and meditation immersion retreat at Borobudur with 10 women. The hotel was the perfect starting point for our journey. The proximity to Borobudur Temple and surrounds allowed the group to explore on foot and by horse drawn cart. We were able to participate in the...

We spent two nights at Saraswati in January and chose the property given it's proximity to the Borobudur complex and its 'historic' feel. It is a 10 minute walk to the complex and well located to local shops etc. The property has a colonial charm with high ceilings, delightful tiled motifs and and a touch of elegance you don't get...

We stayed here for 2 nights in the low season, that made the stay very relax. They gave us already in advance great help with planning our trip and the highlight the sunrise at the Borobudur. The hotel has a classic feel.

This hotel is steps away from Borobudur. Nice staff, quiet, clean room, and great shower. There are not many things to do in Borobudur, as most of the focus is around the temple/surrounding volcanoes - This hotel has an awesome pool to spend your free time in.

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....

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...
