I have been staying in Maumere for a few days and based on the advice of the LP Guide on Flores, I have chosen this hotel, to reside in.
Well, the rooms that were once decent, /perhaps some 20 years ago/ have become very neglected, run down. Nobody touched anything here for the past 15 years, that is for sure. As everywhere here, maintenance is non-existent, the walls bear the marks of activities of tenants of decades past, there is no wash basin, everything leaks, crumbles, creaks. There are no windows opening to the outside, just fixed glass, when the night comes, no ventilation to air out the heat, smells. And several young, strong, healthy male locals sit around in the front lobby all day, playing cards, working their mobiles... doing nothing.
The receptionist, a handicapped local man, was very decent, helpful, spoke good English, though. Left soon, as I could.
