3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Java Banana has changed its name to Jiwa Jawa, having been taken over by a new company. They are trying to make it very high-end but they still have a little way to go. Overall it was great, spacious rooms (interconnecting with our children) and beautiful grounds to explore. The restaurant was fantastic - we really enjoyed the duck. Not... More

We stayed 2 nights before going to Bromo and it was very peaceful place. Everything is new but rooms are quite small. The restaurant is highly recommended, if you have a sunny day in the terrace it could be an excellent culinary experience with fantastic views

Here just one nite while visiting Mt Bromo; arrived late and left early. This hotel is on the top of a mountain, sprawls out over a good deal of property, and was the coolest location (temperature-wise) we visited on a tour of Indonesia. The facilities were booked the evening we were there so we had dinner and drinks in the... More

When you drive up the hill and arrive at the hotel you need to rub first your eyes as this place does first not match its surroundings at all. Neat place, good dinner local fare as well as the breakfast of our sunrise excursion to the mountain. No wifi at all in this place, so relax!

This hotel is apparently the best one in Bromo. The only 4-5 star all around the area. Relatively new, probably 4-5 years old. Well maintained and clean. Not sure about the price. Personally I think it's pricey. IDR 1,850,000/room/night incl breakfast for 2 adults. Well I guess their market target is middle and up. The reason why there was only... More

The best resort in Mt Bromo area. Staff are polite and very well english speaking. Love their gallery and cafe as well. Room is spacious and clean. The food serving in the restaurant a bit slow and Wifi is not working at all. I guess it is hard to get a good internet access in this area as well. They... More

In the middle of no where! Nice hotel in a magnificent location with a gallery and coffee shop on the grounds. The rooms are good, not extremely luxuary but qiute standard. A good hotel for 1 or 2 nights, would not stay longer. Be aware that at night it can be quite cold here.

This is a brilliant property near to Mount Penanjakan. The rooms are comfortable, well apportioned, with all modern facilities and the air is clean. The hotel restaurant is superb, for food quality, decor and service. We would have liked to have had more than one night here. It is near to Mt Bromo and the evocative sunrise. The art gallery...

It was my first time to Bromo and I stay in Java Banana, I really love the place, it's very calm, peaceful, and cold. I am thinking to bring my wife with me next time to visit Bromo. It is very suitable for family trip or couple trip even solo trip. The price is a bit high but worth to... More

We spent one night here in preparation for the sunrise experience on Mount Bromo. The room we had was new and from which we enjoyed spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Food in the restaurant was quite limited but nevertheless provided sufficient choice for an enjoyable evening meal. Unfortunately we had not realised it was a holiday weekend when we... More
