“Hotel With A Great View”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We choose this hotel as it is the nearest to Mount Bromo. We sat on the bench outside the hotel to view sunset while enjoying local foods sold by hawkers. We stayed 1 night here and our room is very cold, bed comfortable and clean, bathroom equipped with hot shower, overall okay with all the basic amenities. Dinner and breakfast served at the restaurant is average.

We stayed 1 night in this hotel.
Room: very basic, a bit cold and we did not have hot water, but the room and bedlinnen were clean.
Restaurant: we had dinner and they had only the half of the card available but food was correct, the breakfast was also OK.
Price: very expensive for what it is, we stayed in much much better hotels for this price.
Location: in the park, with a very nice view

I would really think that this resort is one of the best among all! **Thumb up**. Basically, you are able to get a stunning view of Mt. Bromo within walking steps from the hotel lobby.

In terms of room amenities, there's nothing much to be expected as it's a mountain resort. Be blessed to have hot water in such cold weather. There's no hairdryer in the room. So, ladies, please bear in mind to bring all the required.

Additionally, you are able to get good food right at the resort's restaurant, at reasonable price.

I would definitely stay in this resort again should I ever re-visit Bromo hills! I had a real satisfied trip.

Bad smell, cocroaches, cold.
Prices up to 120$...

Better to drive 1h in the morning than be here.

The only attraction is a great view!

Local restaurant is also OK with quite reasonable prices.

As Indonesia is generally cheap, so I don't see the explanation for 5-stars hotel price.

The hotel is the nearest to Bromo, so it's perfect to see the sunset and to take night photos.
It's a little old and doesn't have heating in the rooms, so they were cold and humid.
I didn't have dinner in the hotel restaurant, I preferred to walk to the town centre and eat in a small warung. I only had breakfast and it was luxurios: fresh fruits, eggs, juices and nasi goreng were the perfect end of the Bromo walk.
There was one things that really annoyed us: Wifi signal didn't reach our room so we had to walk to the lobby to be able to use internet

as recommended by a friend that this one was the best among others, we booked a room in early July 2013. surprised by the old-fashioned room and also its bathroom, we didnt feel comfortable at all. in midnight, my daughter jumped and screamed as a bug crept on her body. for a room around usd 60, this was overpriced. the towels were worn out as well as the bed sheet! we saw there were some rooms in a new wing and asked to change our room but the receiptionist said they were all fully booked. we had a dinner at the restaurant and not cheap at all.

Room Tip: ask a room in a new wing or find other hotel! dont order tea or coffee in the restaurant as you can...

We were warned at forehand. Lodge is not clean and not equipped to match our standards.
Although the views from it over the Bromo area are (when there's no fog) majestic.Service in the restaurant also below level. Breakfast is okay, with enough choice.
