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. What I found so terrible about this place was the rates it charged for the rooms. Our room was 250Rp and it was the most expensive *hole I've ever stayed in. The state of the building is just hideous - we had damp and dripping water off the ceiling and everything felt wet. The windows didn't shut. But it was the bathroom which was what was so disgusting. I avoided using the toilet as I didn't want to enter the place. It really was in its own league of filth. We only had water for the first 10 minutes after we arrived and it came on again as we were leaving so couldn't even wash our faces.
If you have to stay here (and I stress 'have to' as please don't choose to stay a this place) then I would advise negotiating on the price before you commit. I dread to think what you'd have got for the 500Rp (!) they are asking for the 'VIP' room. I mean, 'VIP', what a complete joke! We didn't pay full price due to the water situation, but even what we did pay what was well above what it was worth.
Having got through the night (and as our departure was imminent) I actually found the state of the dining room quite amusing, if not extremely depressing.
This place is basically a slum and should not be charging anywhere near the rates it does. Please plan ahead and book one of the much better options in Moni.
