We stayed here one week in august. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, good working (hot water) shower and you have both air-conditioning and a fan. The views over the ocean are, as mentioned before, just stunning. Breakfast was tasty but the portions where small (as divers we had to last 2 dives before we got lunch, quite... More

Clean room and bathroom, terrace with table and chairs, swimming pool and excellent view on the sea. You can see sunset from your room. Good breakfast and good price for dinner in hotel restaurant. Close to center Labuanbajo (nothing special, better stay on your terrace with drink and look at the sea).Pleasant women-owner.

Stayed for several days in April - sunsets were spectacular, foods were quite good, altho the pool (while in a beautiful patio and had great views) was very warm - unpleasantly so! Still, Dutch owners, Judith and Ingrid (?), were very helpful and accommodating.

After 2 days and 1 night on a boat, cruising Komodo NP and surrounding islands, it was VERY pleasant to stay landbased again ;) Wow, this hotel has a great view: from the pool and from the private terrace of your room... The sunsets will stay with you forever! The breakfast was also tasteful, standard but good. It's a nice... More

Stayed here a few weeks ago. Good simple accommodation. Small pool for a quick dip on a hot day. Everything very clean and tidy. Friendly owner. Met Peter (travel fixer who we can recommend) and organised a boat trip to Rinca. We had the boat to ourselves and a lovely family that cooked a delicious lunch on the way. Peter... More

After 2013, this is our second visit to Golo. The owners did some renovation of the old rooms as they promissed me last year. Although a 15 minute walk uphill from the town centre, it's still one of the best places in LB, with amazing sunsets an views from the poolside. Book in advance, the place gets full quickly. The...

Golo Hill top is a fabulous Hotel set up on top of the hill to the right of the bay (left of the main town). We stayed in a deluxe room which was up an additional two or three flights of stairs from the reception. I walk with a cane and the climb was no problem and there is a... More

The first thing you will notice here is the breathtaking view, then the manufactured gardens, and then the pool. And the people. I spent some nights there and was a bit sorry the hotel was full when I came back 4 months later. I had a very nice experience there. It!s a very quiet place, and just a short 5... More

This is an excellent choice for accomodation and Labuan Bajo. The owners and staff of this hotel were lovely. Thet were extremely helpful and lovely in every way. The restauarant is simple but good and the pool is great. A perfect stop off en route to diving/ visiting Komodo National Park. Thanks guys from Carolyn and family

comfortable settings not luxurious, but the view from the deluxe room was breath taking. I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in Flores. Downtown is only a 15 minutes walk, and the sunsets here are just serene.
