The hotel is situated next to the Temple of Borobudur. And that means that at sunrise you can walk to the entrance of the complex. The hotel has a very good standard. Large rooms and a good Wifi. The entourage of the hotel is beautiful The diner is avarage. The staff is friendly helpful. A real recommendation!
We stayed here for three nights to visit Borobudur and also did some side trips to sights in Yogyakarta - Prambanan and Taman Sari. The Hotel was very clean and beautiful, the staff helpful and attentive in assisting with transport and tours, the food was excellent. The pool area is lovely, and great for an afternoon cool off. To address the other comments on the call to prayer - having travelled in several Muslim majority countries including Malaysia and Egypt hearing the call to prayer in your hotel room is a common experience. It’s part of the culture of the place you are visiting - take it in. In any case - get up and get to Borobudur, it’s stunning!
Please dont book sarasvati borobudur.. we just paid for 2room but never stay there.. a man from reservation office talked to us via telephone have very bad attitude... they received our money but never give service..😠 we plan to go to borobudur and want to stay at saravati borobudur 2rooms but my husband got accident so we have to cancel the planing so.. I did cancelled the booking at 10days before reservation date but there is not refundable so i want to keep it and change the reservation name to my nephew because i have done fully payment..i called the hotel a man on duty dont want to help to re-active the booking again and talked to me with bad intonation😠 😠😠 So.. they took our money and dont let us stay there.. very bad service..😠
The hotel is very nice and the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and the bed was really comfortable. The hotel is an old colonial style building. Our room was spacious. The swimming pool is very nice and well kept. The restaurant is good. This is just about the closest hotel to the Borobudur Temple. I recommend having the hotel driver take you to the temple for sunrise, the walk is a bit far and confusing in the dark. It is only a couple of dollars. Walk back once it is light. The hotel has cars and drivers if you need to get to the airport or to drive you around. The prices were reasonable.
Thank you to Bu Riska and the team for their outstanding service during my 2 day stay. Sarasvati is 200m from Borobudur Temple & markets, and well located opposite a mini market, around the corner from a larger Indomaret & about 1 hour from Yogya city centre. I stayed here 2 nights just to see Borobudur. The staff were very friendly and always accommodating, allowing me to practice my Indonesian and being very attentive during brekky and dinner service. The dinner menu is well priced. The hotel grounds are clean and lush. Rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. I was on the 2nd floor and enjoyed a view over the school next door. The pool is beautiful and nicely shaded. Overall I enjoyed my stay at Sarasvati and will absolutely be back with my partner soon! Thank you! …
