“Poor value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

This hotel needs an update. The grounds are beautiful, but the rooms themselves are in poor condition. They're somewhat dirty and clearly out of the 70s or 80s. The linen is damp, but that's because part of the window is just a screen which cannot be closed. We didn't feel like showering here due to the poor condition of the bathroom. The restaurant is way overpriced, and is of so-so quality at best. I suppose here in the Mt Bromo area hotel choices are limited, and so there isn't much competition. Otherwise a fine base for exploring Mount Bromo.

The room (201 B) was clean, bed was perfect (the linnen were clean and bed was not too hard), two clean towels were provided, bathroom was clean and there was hot water. I cannot understand why this hotel got such a negative feedback; we found nothing wrong with the hotel and it was certainly above expectation. (yes we have been in other place in Indonesia from top rated 5 star to local guesthouses and know what we talking about). It is perfect for a very early trip to Bromo and I would definitly come again.

On the bright side, we were here only for a few hours, trying to get some sleep until it was time to go up the mountain to see the sunrise.

Room 108: old, bed uncomfortable, bed linen damp, outdoor lamp shines into room through ventilation slot with no way of turning this light off, bathroom towels very old.

Had breakfast here after the Bromo trip, nothing special.

View from the restaurant is nice, though.

Cottages are of a convenient size with very basic furniture and equipment. The location is idea as a departure point for the sunrise at Bromo volcano (departure 04h00 a.m.). ~ 3 h drive (220 km) away from Surabaya. The cottages are clean, the furniture is dated and the towels have been white a long time ago; do not expect any luxury. The restaurant is OK without any highlight though in spite of the comparatively high prices.
Practical hint: The place is in the mountains and it can get rather chilly, a sweater and something to keep you warm at night are highly recommended. The cottages do not have any heating or aircon. For the Bromo tour take warm clothes.

the view and the location just nice but the room is so humid and bit dirty, might be from the mountain eruption in the mid year of 2011 but still the food just over priced and the service is poor to average. don't think that they have a heater in the room! its a frozen cold in the night so bring your back up blanket cause the blanket here seem not so often in the laundry.
