My wife & I have checked out locations for photo tours. Lava View is not posh, rather rustic & spartan, but with it's location right on the rim of the larger Bromo area crater and the Sea of Sand, a photographer couldn't hope for much better. Even if you don't do the jeep or horseback ride (recommended) you'll see an... More

Locations is perfect with the crater minutes away. Roons are very basic, no TV and no wifiin room.. No decor or shower curtain.. .Breakfast is adequate. No heat in room so it is very damo humid and smelly. For the price it is not worth it. GET HEAT INSTALLED!! Good and resonably priced reataurant.

They have basic accomodation; but they are clean, and have hot water. Restaurant serve standard meal but they need long time to serve the meal- so go to restaurant before you hungry Their location is superb- batok mountain and sand dessert is infront of the hotel.

The hotel is good for visiting Mt Bromo/ Mt Penanjakan due to the close distance. It's within 5 minutes walking distance to the sunrise platform for Mt Penanjakan and 10 minutes drive to the foot hill of Mt Bromo. The room was ok though getting a bit rundown. Hot water is available here but according to our guide, this is... More

Lava view has a monopoly on decent hotels in this area near Bromo. They have a great location overlooking the crater and ok breakfast, but expect musty smells and dank rooms when you arrive. Also, we opted not to shower given the poor bathroom/shower situation.

We had researched on the hotel in Cemorolawang well before our trip. Basis past experience, there arent many half decent hotels in this area. Lava view was one of our shortlists and we were quite keen but unfortunately it had gotten fully booked. We nevertheless tried our luck on the day by just popping in and luckily there was a... More

I stayed here on a tour to Mt Bromo organised with Rite Indonesia. The hotel is in a great location where we could get nice views of the sunset over bromo. The room had hot water and a western toilet which was great. We had a comfortable stay in the short time we were there (we woke up at 5am... More

Could do better, a real shame as the views to Mt bromo etc are stunning. Location is spot on. Rooms very basic, had some problems with the water heater being noisy although did come and fix it did seem like a place that was being held together by duct tape. Food was very good in the restaurant, again basic fare... More

The best thing about this hotel is the view. You see volcanoes and mountains at your doorstep. Bathroom not the best but you don't find many better toilets in this area anyway. Stay was comfortable and restaurant serves good food too. Location is the best among other hotels as it is placed the highest.
