“Good Value for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Decent, clean, and spacious hotel in Labuan Bajo, about 5 minutes from the airport. They have around 4 cars available that can take you to town and to/from the airport.

We stayed in the Jayakarta suite, which is very large and very good value for money at $150/night . Breakfast was decent and the staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely one of the best hotels in Labuan Bajo and will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The Jayakarta Suites are really spacious and really good value for money. Definitely opt for those.

Very nice place but a transport away from the village. They actually asked for 50,000 for transport to the village which I thought was a bit weird, but whatever. They were very helpful, but found it hard to communicate with the staff as they had a hard time with English. Don't get me wrong, I fully understand I'm in Indonesia and I'm the one that doesn't speak their language, but figured I'd share my experience. After many convos of trying to get info, I became a bit frustrated but delt. If you want to do Komodo/Rinca, go into town and give a local your business. Extremely cheaper and had a great experience. As for my room (620), it was awesome. It was a top corner suite with an incredible view. You should request this room for sure! Wifi actually worked in there too as i caught it from the pool signal. They tell you up front that no wifi in room....only in lobby. Score! :) Comfy bed too. Very spacious and 4/5 on the clean scale. Food is way more expensive in the hotel, but is very good. The Thai beef salad was great. I def reccomend staying here, but only if your looking for luxury in town. You can def go cheaper somewhere else and prob be fine. In some ways, I wish I stayed in town for the convenience, but was happy to relax in my room when I got there.

This is one of the best hotels in Labuan Bajo. The swimming pool and ambience was great although the rooms can be improved. We stayed at the 7th floor of the hotel with the sea view room. The bed is comfortable but there's no door for the bathroom so it's a bit awkward when you're staying with friends, other than that it's clean, decent and new. Hotel staff were very kind and helpful to us and the airport pick up and drop off were like a breeze. I highly recommend it to anyone to stay there when they visit Labaun Bajo.

We were on a 4day tour for Komodo Island and Rinca Island, so when we came back to stay at the hotel it was a bliss! Our tour guide was also beyond amazing! They have a connection at the hotel so we got amazing rates as well!

Stayed at Jayakarta in Flores over night. Got a good deal at $70 a night. It was better then most hotels i stay at in this price range.

The hotel grounds were amazing, and the room was also pretty good.

I also enjoyed the breakfast.

Location was a bit out of town that's probably the main downside.

Wish i could have stayed longer.

Just back in Jakarta from a 9 day trip to Flores of which 6 nights in Jayakarta "Suites" Komodo.We liked our stay in the hotel, but please (as so many have said now) the hotel has nothing of a 5 star quality.
1. Just one lift serving 7 floors, used by the staff and (if place) guests.
2. We have been living in Jakarta for the last three years and traveled extensively in Indonesia and 5 star hotels don't have such small standard rooms without balcony anywhere.Jayakarta suites are almost 5 star standard rooms just the famous lack of door to the bathroom.The word Suite comes from the French word ensuite mostly used to describe a bedroom and living room separated. Yes there is an inflation in the word "suite" but......
3. No restaurant, just a sort overpriced cafeteria without any management. After 3 days the staff of the day still was surprised that we were eating breakfast with 5 persons.
3.Tour questions were not answered, because it was New Year time.

Room Tip: Forget the standard rooms, when you stay longer then overnight.

this is the best hotel which offer you many good facilities, ambiance and happiness. why i say like that, because when you firstly come, they already arrange to pick u up at the airport, then you're warmly greet by a nice FDA at the front office agent with a nice glass of tamarind juice as their welcome drink. then, i goes down to dinner at the restaurant, the server was so nice and knowledgeable told me about unique food at flores, sup ikan kuah kuning, it was a nice recommendation accompanied by a glass daiquiri made by a nice bartender name ervina, about the price is not to expensive, so for all the diver your diving experience is not yet complete if you don't come to JAYAKARTA SUITE KOMODO FLORES and dive at labuan bajo cause they have plenty marvelous dive spot, cheers and ciaw

1)never saw such a silly idea to have a curtain used as a toiletdoor! i am sure the guy who realised this stupid idea has a solid toiletdoor in his own house.
2) why on earth does someone plant trees to hide the view at the sea from the restaurant and bar?
3)i pay only 50 dollars for a night, so i do not expect a 5 star room, but please be honest and do not pretend it is a 5 star hotel.
4)the staff is so friendly, always smiling and try to do their utmost best to help you. that is wonderful!
5)the swimmingpool is absolute top. that part is really 5 stars.
6)the rooms are clean.
7)really too high prices for drinks for roomservice.
8)book a boattrip NOT at this hotel, 2,5 million for a daytrip to rica is over the top. go to the harbour, ask one of the boys on the boats there, and hire a boat(from the owner) for a day for 500.000 -1 million. and give the boys at the end of the day each a tip of 50.000 to double their day -salary. have dinner at madeinitaly, ask for johnny and he could advise you also for a much cheaper daytrip.- john wittenberg
