Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The key value-add of Borobudurhills is the availability of a private pool so definitely go for the Villa with Private Pool! Our private pool turned out slightly bigger than I had expected so I was pleasantly surprised. The entire outdoor area was really really nice with the large lounger perfect for a cuddle. We would have had a completely quiet and peaceful stay if not for the muslim prayers that were regularly broadcasted throughout the day, but that's beyond the management's control. Special thanks to the management as well for accommodating our date change directly even though this was not an option in our original booking with Booking.com. While our room had all the essentials, it could level up its aesthetics. This, plus the slightly off-grid location with no F&B options around (we ordered Grab food delivery) did feel like a slight mismatch with the price point of Boroburdurhills.

It is my second visit to this beautiful Property and i am always amazed and impressed with the personalised Service of the owner , Ibu Ririn and her amazing team . The Covid protocol was strictly in place that make us feel super safe upon arrival and during our entire stay. The room is huge with a super comfy bed and a Private pool overlooking directly the Borobudur temple. Amazing views especially during Sunrise . We have ordered lunch at a very reasonable price . The food was delicious and the portions were enormous. The mini bar is complimentary with a wide selection of snacks and drinks. We had an amazing night sleeping in the super comfy bed and watching the huge smart Television. In the morning we went for complimentary bike ride at the nearby Village and then had our superb floating breakfast by our Private pool. The friendly staff Ernie and her colleague , arranged a VW car tour of the nearby Village . I really can frankly say that this Property is a great value compared to other high end Resorts nearby at very high prices. I will rate the cleanliness , Services, facilities, staff 10 out of 10 . I rarely give such a high rate . We will be definetely back and recommend it to everyone . Thank you Ibu Ririn for such an unforgetable stay.

Beautiful room & spacious, nice view up on the hill, good service, love the interior and furniture, breeze thru the lobby, you can also hang out on the roof top watching the sunset while having a cup of tea accompany by the beautiful Borobudur silhouette. The only thing lacking is the hot water that doesn’t flow smoothly.

Dear Guest Yukie, thank you for your review on tripadvisor and for your comments, very sorry for late reply as well. Indeed is cozy and familiar hotel where the Team can take care any type of guests with Javanese positive and cultural behaviour. Concerning the Hot Water issue indeed we had faced a problem as the contractor did not calculate the volume of usage but the good news is the this matter has been already fixed since one month and now the water flow is strong enough, in fact we have added one water tower which can improve the water flow generally. Thank you very much for this comment which help us to find out the problem. Again thank you for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to Borobudurhills.

I booked a simple room for 2 nights and i was deeply disappointed after staying for 2 nights in Rumah Dharma in Borobudur. So i decided to make an upgrade for a Panorama Villa with private pool. And yes ... it was worth to do that step. Finally it was a nice stay there. Staff was very nice and very friendly ... like all people i met on Java Island and they tried to do their best to help for all questions. We had one dinner their and i missed to enjoy a glass of wine ... or at least a beer with dinner. The view from the Villa is very nice with an overview of the ricefields to the Borobudur Temple. To me, the Villa with pool was a little bit overprized. But finally much better than the other rooms. You need at least a motorbike, as the hotel is a little outside of Borobudur. But to discovery the surrounding it is anyway the best to have a car or motorbike. We also booked a car to bring us to the airport at this hotel. And everything worked very well.

Responded 28 Apr 2019
Dear Sir, first of all thank you for taking the time to review us and appreciate your comments, we are sorry if we were not able to serve wine during your dinner since in Indonesia there are strict procedures to get the alcohol license but probably few years later we should get it. Therefore for the food and beverage we still offer the minimum service as we plan within two years to have a mediterranean restaurant as alternative to the local cuisine. Things may improve in the future but still keep it as a "Homy Place". Otherwise we do offer free bicycles to go around the village. One more time thank you and looking forward to welcoming you again, I remain Regards on behalf of all the Team, Ririn

We booked Panorama Villa with private pool and direct view to Borobudur Temple for one night only. We really love the place, despite the access to the hotel quite difficult if you using public transport. The room is spacious with King Size bed and there is couch next to the Bed. It's very quite and you could easily fall asleep. Breakfast was not bad, this is ala-carte served breakfast that you need to order a day before. I spent the night with my family, but I would recommend this place for couples.

My parents came to visit from Spain. I decided to show them one of the most beautiful places I know in Indonesia and I took them to this marvelous hotel. Cozy, kind and attentive service, amazing views and quiet. Perfect for couples or families, or even solo traveler who want to have a moment of peace or break from city life! The best part of the provided services might be that you can bicycle around to all the places to see near the temple thanks to the bicycles provided as part of the facilities. I will come again for sure. Thank you Ibu Ririn for this marvelous stay and 5 Star service. My parents and I will never forget! It is a beautiful effort to teach english and new skills to the heartwarming locals. I will certainly come again and highly recommend! PS. The rooms with private pool are simply unbelievable!

Stay for one nite only...too bad cause it has magnificent view of borobudur temple..spacious rooms with perfect view. Breakfast was continental bfast with choice of local main dish such as fried rice or fried noodle. You can have it delivered to your room or have it at main dining area. 2 miles/3.5 km approximately to punthuk setumbu for magical sunrise view with the temple and mountains foreground view.

Dear Guest Zaxman, first of all thank you for taking the time to review us and appreciate your comments, indeed we have build Borobudurhills as a simple lodging but what we offer in the rooms is the most comfortable we can do for the Area. Ladova premium matrasses were chosen to ensure a good sleep. For the food and beverage we still offer the minimum service as we plan within two years to have a mediterranean restaurant as alternative to the local cuisine. Things may improve in the future but still keep it as a "Homy Place". Thank you again and looking forward to welcoming you again.

We wanted an accommodation that is secluded. This place is perfect for that purpose. Its view, room, & dip pool, are simply what we needed and more. The bed is of good quality that exceeded our expectation. Hotel staff, including owners, are very helpful and friendly. We like the fact that breakfast choices are offered the night before and served at the time we requested. You can also order dinner. Food is quite nice and portion is generous.

Dear Ibu Maggy, sorry for my late reply and thank you so much for your positive feedback which my team and I much appreciated. Borobudurhills in fact is a small place and we had decided since the very beginning to keep it secluded to make sure guests enjoy their privacy. We do hope you will come back to Borobudurhills in the near future. Again thank you and warmest regards.

Responded 25 Apr 2018
Dear Guest Mrs Shafira, thank you very much for taking the time to review us and for your important feedback. Our resort is set in a natural surrounding therefore in respect with the environment we have minimised the usage of electricity. Also Hot water in all rooms is being generated by solar panels and all rooms have in their bathrooms a small window to allow air circulation however could not be as fast as the special ceiling exhaust. The access indeed these days still difficult since the main road was recently under construction to be enlarged up to 7 meters and soon will be asphalted, hence challenging access is the price you need to pay to get a nice view. I apologise if our service Team was not yet as good as you may have expected. In respect with the environment we have hired KM 0 employees who are still under learning process. Again thank you for spending your time to review us and we look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards. Ririn / Resort Manager
