The setting is lovely and the location, at the beginning of the hike to Mt. Batur, is very convenient. The staff here is very nice and helpful as well. But there are some issues with the rooms. The bed is comfortable but the rooms themselves are enclosed with no ceiling fan and no a/c. The windows do not open to... More

This place is small but welcoming. Not much to it but its clean and the people are very welcoming. The best part about it is that it is where the hikes up Mt Batur begin. This avoids the need to travel early in the morning just to get to the start. We left at 4:00 am with our guides and... More

Stayed here August 2013. It is a small quiet place to come for hiking mt Batur. The owner, Made, is friendly and welcoming. He pick us up in Ubud, stopped at a temple we wanted to see on the way, took us to lunch on the rim of the volcanic valley and took us to Tulamben, again with a stop,... More

According to the map Tania sent to me by email, we found the way to the bungalow smoothly. It has good view to the lake and Mt. Batur. They offered welcome drink. And Jack led us to the local hot spring and suggested us to have dinner there. The local hot spring is cheap but has good view and water.... More

Pro: only 15min by walk to the hotsprings. Cons: untidy, no wireless, noisy (thin walls and windows) and really overpriced! Remark: you have to pay cash and if you don't pay in rupees you will be charged more than the original price.

Quiet and peaceful place to refresh. Very private. Hot Bali coffee and tea for welcome drink was perfect after a long drive from Denpasar. Beautiful view of lake and hill from your bed. You can have a nice stroll a long the surrounding areas to see local horticultural farm. Thanks to Pak Made and Tania for your nice hospitality.

Really nice place located at the foot of Mount Batur! Woke up at 4am to start climbing Mount Batur! The owner, Made Jack, is very polite and kind! Very good place to stay if you want to feel close to farms, plantations and awesome scenery of the volcanoes surrounding the area! Definitely will go again.

Perfect location if you're planning on climbing Mt Batur, this "2-rooms house" is also wonderful if you're want to get a break from the crowded areas of Bali. Very friendly personnel and comfortable room, you can basically arrange almost everything with the owner who will help you have the nicest stay possible.

Our family with two teen girls just stayed a couple nights at Mapa. We loved the fascinating, cultural farming town by Lake Batur. Mapa Lake View Bungalow was clean and comfortable; we loved the quiet stay and nice relaxing area in front of our rooms overlooking the beautiful lake. We enjoyed the early morning hike up Batur Volcano, with a... More

Mapa Lake View is a remote hotel in Songan, locked between Mount Batur and the lake. The best thing about Mapa Lake View is its owner, Made, who is very kind and an excellent cook. We had lunch and dinner here before climbing Mount Batur the next day at 4am. For lunch, we had one of the best Mie Goreng... More
