Gunung Bromo

Where to stay: Gunung Bromo

Lower your expectations when it comes to accommodation choices around Gunung Bromo. Many places rely on the fact that folks are only going to stay for one night (and usually half of that anyway) and don’t expect return guests. Options can sometimes feel antiquated and sub-standard. Every place we viewed offered a hot shower and WiFi, but not all deliver. Cemoro Lawang village is closet to Gunung Bromo, but more desirable digs can be found further down the hill.

We have 5 places to stay in and around Gunung Bromo.

Cemoro Lawang

Edging the Tengger Caldera, Cemoro Lawang offers a wide range of places to sleep, however decent pickings are slim and mostly overpriced. Little consideration has been given to the spectacular landscape, with many a missed opportunity for the views. Budget travellers will struggle for affordability and comfort, but there are at least a half-dozen (largely forgettable) homestay style lodgings we have not listed, mostly starting at around the 150,000 rupiah mark.

Wonotoro

Four kilometres down the hill from the Bromo caldera, heading in the direction of Probolinggo, Wonotoro village offers some of the area’s best accommodation, but you’ll want to factor in the additional cost for a jeep at sunrise.
