We wanted to spend some more money and have a nice hotel. The first room we had, the toilet was broken, and in the shower, the water didn't go down.There was hair on the floor from guests before us and the bed sheet was dirty. In the next room, the toilet was broken, too. They fixed it when we complained....

This is not a hotel, this is dirty building, which name is hotel. Dirty bathroom and towels, dirty bedclothes, dirty water in swimming pool, I find as water of bacteria. On the wall you can find big nest of hornet. Extremely poor brekfest. Air condition is only by name.

Many locals told us to stay at the Sylvia. We were surprised how comfortable our night stay before an early morning flight, as we don't typically stay in glossy hotels. The people who showed us to our very clean, cool room and in the restaurant were very kind and helpful with the exception on the late afternoon receptionist. But thanks...

We stayed here for one night. The rooms are old but OK. The same for the bathroom. For this price I have had better hotels in Indonesia. But it is the best we could get in Maumere.

When you're at Flores, don't expect too much to find hotel which is like in Bali or Java. Sylvia hotel is the best hotel you can find in Maumere. Another hotels are more terrible. The best food I ate was ikan kuah asam, the sambal was so spicy and fresh. The breakfast menu usually white rice, soup, fish, omelet, and...
