I thought it looked like a ghost hotel when I checked-in. The place was super run down. I did not dare use the pillow. The bedsheets had strange black stains on them. The only good thing was the hot shower. Most places in Moni don't have hot shower. The toilet can't flush. In the morning, brown water comes out from... More

The problem with the Flores Sare Hotel is that its flaws, viewed individually, are applicable to just about any other lodging in the area. Wet-style bathroom, dingy furniture, inadequate towels, mystery insects - about par for course. The problem is that it feels like no one cares about this lodging anymore, and the whole place feels disused and unkempt and... More

We arrived at this hotel very, very late and was a bit shocked to see the 'facilities', but our one-night-stay turns out ok. Bed: the bed frame reminded us to dinning table. The legs were pretty high. We felt like sleeping on a dinning table :) Bathroom: each bathroom is now equipped with hot water tap. The water that comes... More

The worst and most expensive hotel we had during our 2weeks stay on the island of Flores. Dirty spartan rooms, unfriendly service. Sanitair not working, many times no water or power. Restaurant looks like a dirty dark factoryhall and they only want to serve tourgroups. We had to walk 20 minutes along a dark dangerous road to the next restaurant.... More

The whole place is damp and unkempt. We had no electricity and no water except brown well water for toilet purposes. The restaurant has wallpaper peeling off and the vegetables tasted of the kerosene used to cook them.

We stayed at the standard room (no hot water) during peak season in Aug for a night for 250rp and found it to be basic and so-so on the cleanliness side. Certainly overpriced compared to other accommodation in Indonesia, but not necessarily so compared to Moni. Perhaps a lot of the bad press it gets is due to the fact... More

I have travelled a lot in SE Asia and rarely feel compelled to write a review of a hotel. However, this place has to be one of, if not 'the', worst place I've ever stayed. We were a bit desperate as we arrived in Moni quite late and (as it was high season) all the better places were fully booked.... More

Flores Sare is a comfortable place to rest and make me feel like home. The service is good, it feels cozy, and the hotel is located on the roadside. Flores Sare is a great place to relieve stress due to the pile of work. With a reasonable fee I got the best service in this place.

We ended up there because the booking was made to Eco Lodge by somebody else for us and their prices were unaccepted, and driver took us to Sare. Sare was more than twice cheaper - 350 000 per night in VIP rooms - but still overpriced. A bit filthy, smelly, no aircon or such. Restaurant wasn't good at all. First... More
