The facilities are so-so, but it is enough for the price that you paid. We paid 200K rupiahs for a double-bed with en-suite bathroom (no AC, of course). The restaurant is good, their Kopi Luwak is especially delicious! Above all, the best part of this lodging is the staff, they are so helpful and accomodating!

When we arrived, the owner (later we known that his name is mas Kelik, the grandson of Bu Djono) welcoming us very friendly. He showed us the room: with the bathroom inside it and the other was a room with the bathroom outside. We took the room with the bathroom inside it. The room was wide ( it could accommodate... More

I think this homestay is a bit overrated. It was not that friendly, and the infamous pancake not available. The room also doesnt have enough air circulation. Eventhough they shared heater/tungku in living room, it was so crowded and not all people can sit around it. You can get better homestay around dieng, way more decent

I have read about Bu Djono in TripAdvisor and I was willing to stay there because of the good reviews about it. But then we've found another nearby homestay which has better appearance and condition, so we booked it in the end. Bu Djono's staffs were very helpful to us eventhough we didn't stay there. They gave us map, free... More

The Chicken Barbeque + Fried Potato is a must try. The chicken is very tender and the potato grew locally in Dieng. I took the Rp. 75.000/night room. It has outside bathroom (already includes hot water) and a good wifi signal. Room does not include heater and proper insulation. So it gets pretty cold at night. The room itself came... More

The staff was really helpful, n full of hospitality. I love the service, also the food. teh susu jahe is really recommended. The staff explain about dieng well n give a simple yet helpful map. the room is just a room, I can't say it special, but the service is.

It can't be a 5-star hotel, but 5 star friendly staff. The local staff didn't force you to check-in room immediately, they allow you go up to have a look how environment of the room then only make decision whether stay down or go other hotel. Able to bargain or ask for discount for the room (if during off-season). Center... More

We let our driver from Yogyakarta booked accommodation in Dieng for us because we couldn't reach any by e-mail. When we arrived at this ramshackle guesthouse, it's raining heavily so the whole place was musty. The three of us stayed in a dark, dingy, mouldy room upstairs with one queen bed and one mattress with no TV, no WiFi, no... More
