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.

We arrived quite late after 12 hours of driving from Yogyakarta, so we only had very basic needs for our short stay at the lodge. The room was spacious, and clean, but everything was so damp. The towels, and the bedsheets. I'm glad I had brought my own spare blanket, because the sheets and quilts on the bed were not... More

Was with a group of friends here on Good Friday long weekend. Rooms were pretty average with basic toiletries. We requested for triple sharing and the 3rd 'bed' is just a thick mattress lying on the floor. Once you lie on it, it simply got indented. The Queen bed is pretty acceptable and cosy. Hot shower is available especially when... More

We stayed here for 1 night on a short weekend trip to Mt Bromo and Surabaya (1 twin and 1 double at 600k IDR each). The views out over Mt Bromo are absolutely superb and this is the main plus point of this hotel. Staff are friendly and transport to and from Surabaya can be arranged (we paid 600k IDR... More

It is the highest place and the closest to Mount Bromo. You will be able to see the beauty of Mount Bromo and Mount Batok from your window. I think this is a very appropriate place to stay.here are available for family rooms and also for couples. The restaurant will be closed at 21.30pm. If you want to go see... More
