The hotel is very 'basic' but the best in the area. The roads offers much mountain driving, and is a challenge that can not be challenged in the dark! The food is nothing to be had, but the rice is nice and hearty, but also very cheap.

Stayed one night here with intrepid travel tours. Beautiful views of Mt Rinjani & the valley. Very basic accommodation. No hot water. Grubby rooms & very basic bathroom. Slow breakfast service. Breakfast ok. This is a great location for exploring the mountain & wonderful waterfalls so suited our needs as we spent little time, apart from sleeping, at the accommodation.... More

Nothing much has changed here in 10 years, rooms are simple but clean and well maintained. They are still busy since there are simply no good alternatives, therefore try to book a room with warm water early since the cold mountain water is really cold. The Breakfast is extremely simple however they have a nice range of local food in... More

I stayed at Pondok Senaru Cottages for three nights with my partner, who had a sprained ankle and couldn't walk. We could not have chosen a better place for him to recuperate. The staff bent over backward for us. From providing extra pillows, a trip to hospital and room service, they were extremely thoughtful and also suggested and arranged activities... More

We stayed here after doing the 4 day Mt Rinjani walk. After roughing it on the mountain this was pure luxury. The rooms were large and clean with hot showers. Getting a cold beer was a problem as they didn't have enough ready which was disappointing. The breakfast was very limited with very few choices. Great views from the rooms... More

The location is stunning, with amazing views of Mount Rinjani and excellent walks up the mounts and to the waterfalls. Our room was fine - very clean bedlinen and towels although the shower room was not the best and the water was cold. However, the rate was amazingly cheap and we were only here for one night and we thoroughly... More

I loved the location of this hotel. Set your alarm to see the sunrise. Take a hike up Rinjani or around the vulcano to a sasak village, rice fields and waterfalls. The water is cold, but that was not a big problem for me. There is electricity where you can charge your phone/ camera. Staff is friendly. Rooms are big... More

Yes, all the negatives in other reviews are true, but you're not there for the room. This place is right at the bend of the valley running down from Gunung Rinjani, and has the best view by far. Other places see only up the valley to the mountain or down to the sea. The dining tables here are right out... More
