Where to stay in Magelang

While Magelang provides a good base to explore the surrounding area, accommodation options inside the city are limited and often basic. Instead, many guests choose to stay in nearby Borobudur, a half-hour drive from the city. Its world-famous Buddhist temple and location in the hills has made it a prime spot for luxury resorts. If you don't want to splurge on something too fancy, go for a local experience through one of the town's homestays.
