The hotel was certainly very average and the worst we have stayed in for the same price in Indonesia to date. But our main concern was the driver they arranged for us to get to Ijen. We were offered the opportunity to share a driver with another couple and split the cost so when we went back to book, we... More

Very mixed impression of this place. Our room was massive (Rose room), like a small flat. Clean and comfortable enough. There is a fantastic, large and clean pool. Prices are very reasonable; there is a nice bar area to relax, but there is absolutely no atmosphere. Despite the warm temperature, the hotel feels very cold and impersonal. The restaurant is...

The hotel has nice variety of rooms with good value. It also has a huge pool and the food was awesome. The hotel is located very well in the town, which is a small one, so everything is within reach. Actually, I stayed here at the end of the world: 21 Dec 2012. I saw a picture of the previous... More

I have to say, we absolutely loved our stay here! There are a lot of average reviews on here, but in a year of travelling I have really fond memories of this hotel as an oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of Java. We stayed here for just 2 nights and could happily have had a 3rd day... More

We stayed here on our road trip from West Java to Bali. Having slept in the car or couch surfing all the way, we decided to have a little break. Using lonely planet we tried to find the cheapest hotels on their list and came accross really ugly, old, or just plain disgusting properties with price not really as cheap... More

The standard room I stayed in was quite clean, with AC and cold/hot water in the shower. However, it was a bit old and poorly maintained. Breakfast was NOT buffet, it consisted of meal (fried rice or rice with chicken soup), hot drink (tea or coffee) and water. Please note, the hot drink was sweet. Make sure you tell the... More

The hotel rooms are too small for that prices, but since not so many better option in Bondowoso, we stayed there for 2 nights. The rooms look need renovation in many things, and many ants also in the room. We booked the transport to Ijen from the hotel for 600k rupiah, and it's normal price, it's just we got the... More

Modern and nice hotel in this town half way between volcanoes Ijen and Bromo. Tidy place with a big public swimming pool and a restaurant. The price is very cheap regarding the quality: 150 000 IRP for a double room without ac. Don't hesitate to stay there!

I found staff friendly and courteous and what a nice feeling to stay in a proper hotel after visiting Bromo and Semeru volcanoes for a week. I needed a town and a swimming pool, along with civilisation before heading up to Kawah Ijen. This place had the biggest and clean swimming pool I had in the whole of my trip... More
