convenient location, great rooms and friendly staff

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Oct 2023
very well located hotel with friendly staff. the breakfast was good, not amazing but fine for the location. The pool is lovely and deserted. if you stay in a large room overlooking the pool, however, be prepared for a very loud mosque nearby that gets going at 4:00 am or so... Our room had 1.5 baths which was a nice convenience!

This is an average 3 star hotel. It’s an old colonial era hotel with v old flooring and style. But the rooms are very ordinary. They didn’t have hand towels, a/c wasn’t working, no soap in the basin area. Food menu tok is very limited. Though the location is good right next to the Borobudur structure.

This hotel is one of the best place we have been in Indonesia. We loved the set-up, as if it has been a colonial governmental palace. It isnt, however. It is new built. The place feels grand and is grand. The swimming pool is nice and gives lots of room to move. The suite is great, very big. The people are just wonderful. The Borobudur very close indeed, easy access therefore. Food is good enough. Breakfast is OK.

How good it is to go to an Indonesian hotel that has a star rating that matches its facilities.

So many times in the last few weeks we have stayed at hotels that SAY they are five-star but are nowhere close to that. Sarasvati Hotel is listed as 3-star, and 3-star it is.

It is spectacularly well located within walking distance of Borobudur Temple, there are lots of restaurants within easy walking distance, and there is a convenience store across the street.

The rooms are clean but dated, and set around a quiet courtyard.

It would be good to have a desk and chair, and easy access to a powerpoint in the room. I was able to use a table in the dining area for this though.

Breakfast was a very pleasant surprise. As a boutique property, I expected there may be little on offer, and certainly not buffet-style. I was wrong. There was tea & coffee, juices, fresh fruit, rice, noodles, a chicken dish, a vegetable dish, a few local goodies, and bread for toasting (butter and 2 jams). There was also an egg chef for made-to-order eggs.

My only criticism would be that used dishes were not cleared from the table promptly (or without having to ask).

The staff was friendly, and courteous, and provided some good information about the changes to viewing at the Borobudur Temple.

The gardens and pool were terrific.

Rooms are on two levels, so try for the ground floor level if you do not want to climb stairs.

Room tip: If you are travelling to go to Borobudur Temple please check you can see what you want to see as access is now limited.

This is a very attractive older hotel a short walk from the Borobudur visitor entrance. The lobby and room were nicely furnished in a classic style and I liked the high ceilings throughout. The breakfast wasn't a buffet when I visited, but there were several choices and I had plenty of good food to eat. I didn't use the pool but it certainly looked inviting. The staff was great. I considered it an excellent value.
