We stayed here for 2 nights while traveling Java. If you're looking to get out of the hectic cities, and have some peace and quiet, then this is the place. Great laid back hosts who'll do anything for you (they spent nearly an hour finding us the best and cheapest plane tickets to bangyuangi) great food, and the best must...

If you want to visit the magnificent, magic Borobudur don't miss this hotel! It's situated in the padi fields near the small village. Certainly don't forget to ask the housekeeper to cook for you! It was a great, real Javanese meal we will never forget.

We discovered this place by coincidence on a raining evening and this happened to best the best location amongst our 15 days trip across Java. Medhi is a great host, the rooms are very confortable, the location is beautifull and the chef cooked the best dishes! We all enjoyed our stay in Rumah Dharma.

I cannot say anything bad about this place. It was just perfect. The food was the best I had during my whole trip. The bed, the cute house , all the details, the dog and the owner who organized everything for us. Just all perfect. I highly recommend this place.

Very cosy and small. While it is no luxury resort, the peace and lush flat padi fields soothe all your city stress away. And owner Medi is courteous and helpful. His warm hospitality and good food just adds to the total bliss.

This place was suggested by my tour guide and after looking at a bigger hotel, I chose Rumah Dharma. On arrival I quickly realised I had made the right choice. It consists of four little houses in a row and each house is a room. At the end, near the road is the kitchen where a local lady cooks simple...

Scrolling down hotel names, I remembered my stay in Rumah Dharma Borobudur. it was in August 2011. We went there so sudden, we did not make a reservation. it was based on a recommendation of a local Becak Driver. Merapi was erupted 2 months early so everything was covered in thin ashes. Negotiating the price, we got a great deal....

Tucked nicely in the vegetable patches and rice fields of Magelang, this modest 4-cottage abode of Dharma gave us memories that we seek from each of our travels. We were on our first 'long distance' trip with our son who had just turned one and boy, did he not enjoy his stay where he could toddle around chasing hens and...

This is a gem in Borobudur. It's located in the end of the village. When we arrived at the bus terminal, a friend of the owner found us on the bus, although I didn't tell the owner the arrival time. He took us to the place by becak, bicycle taxi, and it took about 10 minutes. It was quiet and...

My family and I loved this little place in the ricefields near Borobudur. Perhaps the best food we ate throughout Indonesia and one really feels as if you are staying in the countryside, with a local village nearby that you can go cycling through (bikes and guides available). Very highly recommended! Note - you will hear the village mosques at...
