We arrived at 6pm in the evening and there was no-one as reception, after shouting for 5 minutes the receptionist came out. She looked really pissed off and hostile, liked we'd woken her up in the middle of the night. She didn't (or wouldnt') speak English so our taxi driver translated. She denied that they take online bookings and that we would have to pay again, and then tried to charge 500,000Rp when we had booked online for 350,000rp.
We we're showed a room that had more mold on it than anything i'd seen before, and quite clearly they had a problem with water leaking through the ceiling, which looked liked it was about to collapse. The 'hotel' is really run down and had a really bad vibe, I felt our stuff wouldn't be safe there, it's also about 10 minutes walk about of town - on a dark road that you wouldn't want to walk at night.
All in all it was so bad that we stayed somewhere else!! We ended up with a nicer room for half the price. Things do get very booked up in Moni so i'd advise trying to book something in advance, though most of the places aren't on the internet. 'Bintang' lodge seemed to be the nicest place.
it’s all about expectations. can’t expect much in this area.
Nicest thing about the hotel is the name and location: right next to beautiful rice fields
Basic accommodations. Deluxe rooms in the front are the best. however very noisy being on the street. Room was very spacious and festive with nice curtains. Fluffy comfortable mattress. Bedspread and there was dirty black mold on the ceiling. Hot water turned off at night but you can ask them to leave it on. Hallways are like tombs echoing all sounds.
