“Happy Happy Hotel, Bajawa, Flores, Indonesia”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

What a delightful treat it was arriving at this oasis, while travelling around Flores. The bright purple paint work with the bright yellow smiley faces make it easy to find. It was very clean, good beds, with hot water, a great breakfast of pancakes and fruit. However, it was the hospitality of the host that made it special. With free water and chilled glasses. They even sold Bintang if you wanted a night in to relax/

Room Tip: Our room was at the front of the hotel. No problems with it.

I loved my stay at the Happy Happy. I got advised by a friend to stay here and I was NOT disappointed at all. The hotel is very clean, spacious and it's wonderful to relax here after a day of traveling. The beds are wonderful and comfortable, but best of all are the hot showers. Very unique in Flores and so great to have. But the amazing breakfast (home made bread) and the free wifi are a bit plus too. You couldn't wish for a better host than Marie (and Henk).

My husband beat me to the punch and posted a review of this wonderful hotel without telling me first, so I decided to write my own review too.

Many accommodations on the island of Flores are not quite as clean or friendly as what you might hope for. Hotel Happy Happy, on the other hand, is an oasis of comfort and whimsy. When we visited, we could tell we were in for an experience, just based on the bright purple exterior and those big yellow smiley faces. Inside, everything was fresh and clean--gleaming floors, fresh paint, clean bedding--completely spotless. We had our choice of rooms and selected one near the back, away from the road. We had clean sheets, clean towels, free drinking water, free Wi-Fi, and best of all, a wonderful Western-style flushing toilet that actually worked. In the morning, our hosts prepared a delicious breakfast for us including several kinds of fruit, freshly made (homemade!) bread, butter, jam, real coffee, freshly squeezed juice, hot scrambled eggs, cheese, and tomatoes.

The owners, Henk and Marie, were super friendly and helpful in every way. They gave us lots of hints and tips on area attractions. When I'd mentioned to Marie that I would like to buy a quality piece of Ikat, she immediately offered to take me on her scooter to the local market to look at pieces made by villagers from surrounding communities. Unfortunately we were getting ready to hit the road, or I would have taken her up on the offer.

In summary, this hotel really lives up to its name. If you find yourself looking for a place to stay in Bajawa, don't go by the recommendations in your most likely outdated guidebook. Instead, stop in at Hotel Happy Happy. We would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone looking for that proverbial port in the storm.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back and away from the road are quiet.
