After more than a week in Sumbawa and to that point, very disappointing accommodation, the Samawa Transit Hotel was a breath of fresh air. The rooms are small but well appointed, very clean with comfortable beds and hot showers. The staff were friendly and happy to arrange transport and forward accommodation for us. Room rates were very reasonable and excellent...

There is not a lot of choices in Sumbawa Besar but this is a good one. Very near the airport and close to city centre. No pool but all else you'd expect from a mid range hotel. We arrived by boat from Tambora and they were happy to send a car to get us from the beach.

The Samawa Transit hotel is conveniently situated just outside the airport entrance. Sumbawa is an island to be discovered and a great place to start is the Samawa hotel. The hotel,family owned and operated, is very welcoming. The staff is friendly and the rooms comfortable and clean.

We arrived by sea and got motorbike taxis for 10,000. It was a five minute ride. The hotel is directly across the road from the airport (noise was not an issue). The hotel has a definite colonial feel. Upstairs there are pleasant spots to sit and read a book. There was interesting furniture and objects and I liked being there....
