The staff here are rock stars! We came to Banyuwangi from Mt. Bromo feeling a little defeated after not seeing a sunrise due to fog at Bromo. We were considering not even going to Ijen since it's difficult to do without a tour. There's not much good information online about getting to Ijen and after a 6-hour ride from Cemoro... More

Based on Tripadvisor reviews I always try to find special hotels for my travels that are good located and offer real value for money. This is definitely one of them. Watu Dodol hotel is a small hotel next to the sea with 8 two under one roof Bali style bungalows circled around a tropical garden. Especially at sunset and sunrise... More

I was staying at this hotel after visiting Mt. Ijen. To be honest, I didn't expect much from this hotel because it was rather cheap. But when I was checking in, I was surprised because the hotel is actually good! You can see Bali Strait from here (or in front of your room, if you choose sea view cottage). And... More

We really surprised when we came to this hotel because we didn't expect that it will be this good! The hotel was rather small (they only have about 16 cottages) but very lovely. It has a view heading toward Bali Strait and you can see West Bali National Park from your room. Although the building's rather old (it was built... More

The hotel is located next to a busy road so take earplugs for the night It has a nice pool and a fantastic sea view on Bali shores. The Room is okay, but old. A lot of mosquitos so bring your repellent! The breakfast is very simple and barely enough.

GENERAL Nice enough place in an inconvenient location. All the services worked properly and the staff found us a great guide and vehicle for our midnight Kaweh Ijen trip. Attached restaurant had good food at a reasonable price. The only thing really wrong is that the hotel is far from the town (but not so far from the sleepy northern... More

Very nice swimming-pool. They are renovating the restaurant so very noisy at the moment. We got a 10% discount because of the noise. The manager ( his name IMSORRY??) arranged our trip to bromo. All was done perfect.

This hotel is simple but the pool is lovely and there are nice views of Bali. We wanted to go to Ijen and the guy on the front desk was really helpful and arranged this for us at short notice (for the next morning) at a cheaper price than the guy at the train station had been offering. A packed... More

I have been staying here four times and I find this place very good! The rooms, the pool and the restaurant with both indonesian and western food are all very good. I will be back! This is the best place for a visit in east Jawa. Close to Baluran National park.
