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!

The only hotel with a swimming pool in town, but the swimming pool is used as a public pool for the whole town. The (standard) rooms are very basic ( no towel, no soap, no bed linnen) so be repared. breakfast was very limited in the cafe next door( rice or rice) , because the restaurant was temporary used as...

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

They offer a driver to the volcano Ijen for 600,000 rupiah. DO NOT TAKE THIS. Staff members can easily connect you with a driver for 450,000 and you can talk this down at least to 400,000. I was approached by a staff member who hooked me up with his friend (who is a regular driver for the hotel). Otherwise okay... More

The hotel is an ok place to stay, although our friends stayed in the other hotel in Bondowoso which has a very friendly atmosphere. We left our bags to climb the Ijen volcano and came back to pick them up and go to Bromo. At Bromo we found out that our laptop and phone were stolen. We called the hotel,... More
