The guest house was built in 1894 for visitors to the coffee plantation. It is an impressive building at the centre of the coffee processing complex. Sadly it has not been maintained. What is inexcusable is that it is dirty, the decrepitude is acceptable. It was so dirty I would not recommend staying here. You have to order the set menu dinner in advance. It was by far the worst meal I had in 3 weeks in Indonesia. The menu was tailored to western taste and was both bland and cold. Unfortunately if you are visiting Ijen volcano, there is no where else to stay. In this case, you need to bring a sheet sleeping bag and your own food and then you'll be fine!
