We only stayed one night and were very happy with the hotel. Our rooms were new, modern and a reasonable size and opened onto the gardens. Bathroom arrangements have the hand basin in the bedroom but there is no provision to hang a towel by it or much room to put a wash bag. The blocks of rooms are across... More

Stayed here to participate the Bromo Marathon; one hour away if you go across the sands to the start line in Wonokitri. Good room, good food, clean, nice place to hang out and relaxing view. After all, you need a clean bathroom, clean bed and good food after running. No wifi, if there is, it was off all the time.

Java Banana Bromo is by far the Best Hotel in Bromo. It's the ONLY Hotel which is up to 4-star hotel standard (although it has no swimming pool). the other 'hotels' in Bromo are more like guest-house and traditionaly managed. The owner of Java Banana is the former Director of one of Indonesia's Government-owned-bank. So the hotel is professionally managed.... More

The hotel is nice and well decored. The receptionist was friendly and gave us much information about bromo. They also gave us take away breakfast because we went to mt. bromo at 4 AM. We were quite happy and without no doubt will stay here again if i back to bromo :)

The setting is very beautiful and calm. So I could see staying here as a relaxing, tranquil spot during a stay at Bromo. The grounds are beautiful. However, given the price and judging the stay relative to other hotels and service, I simply found the rooms and other items to be way over priced. The item that annoyed me the... More

Absolutely nice hotel, clean, high class performance and i should say if this hotel (based on my opinion) the best hotel in Bromo area. High quality breakfast, service was good, and everything was okay. Compare to the another hotel, this one is the best, but the weakness is, you can't see good attraction from here. Only strawberry plant, and field.... More

First of all, this place is an absolute bliss. Surrounded by beautiful landscapes of Bromo agriculture region. We couldn't believe our eyes when we sat in the outdoor terrace having breakfast and enjoy landscapes that you more likely expect to see in Swiss Apls than in Java. And the whole resort looks like chalet. Rooms are spacious and quite nice... More

We would normally have given this picturesque hotel 3 stars but as its the only descent place near the Volcano we gave it 4! No AC or heating in the rooms.. Can get v cold here. The main building has a shop with some great inspiring shots taken of the majestic volcano and surrounding volcanos...well worth the 04:30 leave for... More

We stayed at this hotel on our Java tour in December 2014. We had been driving all evening from Solo and because of some huge traffic jams we arrived there only at 10:30 PM. Unfortunately we had to get up again at 02:30 AM to get on the Jeep to Mount Bromo. So we didn't really have a good night... More

First time to Bromo. Java Banana send a clean and comfortable car to pick us up. It is located about 30 minutes drive to the bromo national park and 4 hours drive from Surabaya. We stayed in December for 2 nights. The room is clean and its interior is a blend of modern and Indonesian. The staff is very kind... More
