Hello. I was thinking to go to Amanjiwo some time by the end of the spring, I was wondered how far is the Borobudur (the Temple complex)? Are there any shuttles; trains or taxi? Also, is it crowded in the spring time? Trying to decide whether to stay near the monument or at a nicer hotel but further. Read that the views are outstanding but I guess the views may give the Borobudur experience partially.
It's a couple minutes by car, and they're happy to shuttle you over. They can also arrange the pre-dawn tour if you're willing (and it's worth it, to avoid the crowds, see some amazing lighting and avoid the heat).
As for "nicer hotel" - I'd say Amanjiwo is pretty outstanding as-is.
