Elvin Hotel was just an OK place. The rooms are air-conditioned which is a big plus and most of the time it was quiet. Service is probably the weakest area for this hotel. My clean towels disappeared from my room while I was out during the afternoon and it was difficult to get new towels. After about 30 to 45... More

The Elvin is currently the best choice in terms of value for money in Waingapu. Rooms are located well back from the busy main road that offers various shops and simple restaurants, as well as a bakery (very rare in Sumba island). My room on the second floor was spacious, airconditioned and clean, and the bathroom remarkably free of mozzies.... More

My friends and I tried three different hotels in Waingapu before settling on the Elvin Hotel. I'm really glad we did. The rooms were really large and all the closets had locks and keys, which made me feel safe. They also had a cold shower and working toilet (which was not my experience in other places in Sumba). The A/C... More

The Elvin is probably the best hotel (not resort) in Sumba and has clean rooms, a/c, comfortable beds and a new wing under construction. No hot water. The staff are a bit clueless and don't always get the reservations straight. Breakfast is a boiled egg, tea and bizarre white bread. No restaurant, no pool.
