We stayed here during a tour of Java before continuing on to Bali and Lombok. First impressions were good. We arrived at 5pm and our room was spacious, clean, with a huge bed. Then we went for dinner and it went downhill. I realise that January is low season, but half of the menu was unavailable, and the rest seemed... More

Ok, we arrived yesterday tired after travelling from Yogyakarta. We were shown our room, which is adequate. On a par with travel lodge for comfort. Our first meal was disappointing, no large beers, the starters tasted like they had been reheated and not thoroughly either. The menu isn't very extensive and items were not available. Having said that, it is... More

Of 7 accommodations used on our tour around Singapore & Indonesia, this was the most disappointing. Firstly, the rooms are very nice, the only problem being the hardest bed I have ever tried to sleep on! On arrival we were asked to pay three times the agreed price because Agoda had sold us a room at a Java Banana in... More

We were the only people in the hotel so we didn't really stress the system. But that also meant that full service wasn't really on offer. Everything was OK with nothing really sparkling. Can't fault the enthusiasm of the staff and there's an excellent photo exhibition to inspire.

Nice hotel and good restaurant, probably one of the best of the area. The owner is a photgrapher. It has a coffee area with wonderfull photos. The worst: We asked for heating in the room and they offered me a blanket (no heating system) and wifi doesnt work in the room. Neither hairdryer. They gifted us a good dessert in... More

We loved our time at Jiwa Jawa Lodge (formerly known as Java Banana Lodge) - the staff were really friendly and the food was great too. Great location for climbing Mount Bromo - the hotel arranges the 4 x 4 jeeps for the (approx.) 45 min drive to the crater of Mount Bromo. Its an early start (3.30am) but really... More

lovely resort! We stayed one night in a junior suite which was a stunning room, and one in an executive room which was also very comfortable. All staff were highly attentive and professional, and we found the art gallery and restaurant very nice. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here!

We only stayed for one night going to Mount Bromo. We arrived quite late and had no reservation for our trip to Bromo but the girl at the reception quickly arranged that for us. She was also very helpful in booking accommodation for us for the following days in another hotel in Ketapang and told us to go a get... More

The resort are the best in Bromo Area, its very clean and artistic. The room is very comfortable and clean. The service is also good. The restaurant food is quite good but the choice of food and drinks is only a few. You should try the pisang goreng (fried banana) u'll be surprised in the presentation. I will give 5... More

Some of the reviews in here seem unfair. It's true that the rooms do seem to lack that little bit of effort which keep them a step a way from being excellent, but they're pretty good when all is said and done. Yes, take mosquito and insect repellent, you're on the side of a mountain among farmland. The views from... More
