We stayed twice before and after a diving liveaboard. Our first stay was excellent - we were in one of the top rooms and had a breathtaking view from our balcony. Our second stay, we were in the furthest room on the bottom, so we heard road noise and the wi-fi didn't work. Despite the two different types of rooms,... More

The owner helped us to organize an excellent cruise to Komodo National Park and was extremely accommodating of our needs. As the other reviews indicate, the hotel is not fancy, but clean and comfortable with great views over the harbour and a very nice atmosphere. Walking to town is easy during the day since you're going downhill. It's not a... More

Golo Hilltop is a small Boutique Style hotel with stunning ocean views, quiet serenity and pleasant family atmosphere. Judith and Ingrid are two very friendly Dutch women who run the place very well indeed. Golo is situated on top of a hill about 1 km from the city centre, this makes it a quiet and relaxing place but everything is... More

This hotel is stunning. Superbly managed and extremely well organised. Rooms at the bottom have recently been refurbished so there is AC and fan in each and windows straight out to gorgeous view of the bay. Nice little touches are appreciated. For example - coffee comes in "filter pots" - the ones with a plunger so you don't get gloopy... More

We stayed here for two nights and both nights were fantastic. For breakfast, the bread rolls were soft and tasty (and I found out later it was homemade). The restaurant overlooks the bay so you definitely will take your time eating and enjoying the scenery. The two owners were fantastic..they helped us with so many things like calling an angkot...

As part of our four week Indonesia vacation, we stayed at Golo Hilltop first for two nights in a Deluxe Room, then went on a trip to Komodo and Rinca, and returned for another night at Golo (this time in a Superior Room). The prearranged transfer from the airport went smoothly. It is a very beautiful, clean and well run... More

Stayed 4 or 5 nights at Golo, and loved every minute of it. The view from our chalet was extraordinary- full panorama of the smaller bay at LB. Food was great- we ate regularly 'in house', and the staff were brilliant (Sam, Peter, and of course our hosts Ingrid and Judith). Oh, the pool- the pool is ace for cooling... More

Unfortunately we were only able to stay for one night with the polite ladies Ingrid & Judith as they were fully booked even in low season. Their response on emails is amazingly quick! We opted for the deluxe room on the upmost top of the hill offering beautiful views (causes one to climb some more steps) which is in fact... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Golo Hilltop in Labuan Bajo. The staff were very friendly, rooms were clean, breakfast was adequate. Very helpful in arranging transfers. It is a walk down and then back up, the hill into the main part of town. I rented a scooter for the length of my stay. However, the view is spectacular and... More

What I liked about the location was the view from the hill, the place has a very nice view and the friendly staff and owners. What I disliked where the enormous amounts of mosquitos in the room, the noise from the (temporary construction works), the old-fashioned design of the rooms, the distance from Labuan Bajo, especially if you go diving...
