We stayed in Lava View Lodge in july. The outsides of the hotel and the restaurant give a really moutain lodge feeling. The room was not so nice. Very old and dark and not really clean. We had a triple room, but the third bed was just a matrasse on the floor. The restaurant was nice, with live music and a really great breakfast after the Bromo trip.
So nice atmosphere, crap room, but we only stayed there a couple of hours anyway.
