I was stay here when visit Dieng Plateau, its nice hotel, good hospitality staff and also the staff can be guide too.....
On the main road, just located on the triangle road, where the bus stop...
Though the Hobbits were into high adventure, they weren't too impressed with the inns(losmen) in the small ville of Dieng. Most of the losmen could be found clustered at the entrance of the ville and they looked more rustic than all the other inns they have seen in their many adventures. Nonetheless, their curiousity got the better of them when they saw an innkeeper with a Singapore T-shirt! They ventured into one losmen, walked up a creaky staircase and saw that all of the rooms had a wooden partition and a thin mattress.
They concluded quickly that hot water was a possibility as distant as Timbuktu.
The hobbits said a few polite words and went out, glad that they made a choice to stay at Wonosobo.
They decided that it wasn't worth staying here unless they were into the insane 3am-sunrise-over-the-mountains tour.
Cost of staying in a losmen in Dieng : 5-10USD. Do bargain before settling for a room there. Settle for the inn that has a quilt, it gets bloody cold here at night.
I didnt stay here. But just went there to check if this was better or the neighbouring guest house-BuJono guest house is better. This hotel too had comparable facilities. The only negative point was that its restaurant was closed.
The Dieng Plateau Homestay and the Bujono Guest house are located next to each other.
We finally decided to stay at Bujono Guest House.
BuJono Losmen (Guest House) and Dieng Plateau Home-stay Guest house are located next to each other. Initially, I had been recommended to stay at Dieng Plateau Home-stay Guest House. I didn?t do any prior reservations because I knew this was an off season and hardly anybody comes here during the wet season. When I reached the hotel, the interiors of BuJono Guest House was looking better and we decided to stay at this place. It was a spontaneous decision. Moreover, the restaurant of Dieng Plateau Home-stay Guest house was closed for some reason.
Both of these hotels (or GuestHouses to be precise) offer very basic accommodation facilities. I got a VIP Room with attached Bathroom/toilet and hot water for IDR 70K. Probably I could have bargained and I am sure they would have brought down the rates to less then IDR 60 K. But I didn?t want to do that. As it is, even the IDR 70 K rate is cheap by all standards. Me and my Driver Wisnu were the only guests at the hotel when we checked in immediately. BuJono Losmen (Guest House) has a restaurant at the ground floor, serving Fried Rice, Banana Pancakes, bakery items, potato fries (heaps of them-I think they get free supply of Potatoes) and some other simple stuff. The room was comfortably big, lighting was poor. I also saw a Kerosene lamp at one corner of the room, indicating load shedding at times. No breakfast is served, but there is a free flow of coffee/tea and these (coffee/tea leaves) are locally produced. The bathrooms do not have supply of Hot water. If you want hot water, let them know. They will get it for you in buckets. It is advisable to bring your own towels, bedspread and soaps/shampoos. The beds-sheets didn?t look so clean to me. Most of the tourists come from Yogya/Wonosobo and return on the same day. A lot of them decide to stay at Wonosobo, which is a Regency town and has better hotel facilities. Only a handful of x-tra adventurous tourists decide to stay at Dieng Village (like me).
The location is very close to most of the tourist attractions.
It can be undescribed place to stay. Since so homey, so simple and humble because I stay in a local house nearby Dieng Plateau at Wonosobo and spend hours in local house at Desa Sembungan whenever I go trekking.
Javanese lingo, local meals and beautiful scenery.
