The Silverin hotel is contained inside an attractive but poorly-situated building. We stayed in the standard room on the top floor, facing the back of the property. The rooms are extremely small and a bit gloomy, due to the small window. There is a skylight in the bathroom but you don't want to open the bathroom door to avoid the Asian toilet smell. Each room opens on to a shared verandah. The verandah area is tiled so noise echoes around. The hotel is built right on the main road and there is a lot of traffic noise and right below it is a house/farmlet with lots of noisy livestock and children. The bed had nice clean sheets and was comfortable but there was no mosquito net. The room was fully furnished but a bit squashy. There was also a hand-basin in the room and a nice cake of soap (a rarity in Flores hotels). There was supposedly hot water in the shower but it took forever to get any out.
Breakfast was served on the verandah outside the room and you get a view of the volcano (Inerie). Breakfast was ok, toast, 1/2 egg omlette 1 piece of fruit & tea/coffee. The restaurant across the road serves good food but it takes 1 hour to come. Staff were pleasant and they even had computers/internet available downstairs. The big downside of this place is that it is about 5km out of town and there is nothing much nearby and nothing at all to do at night.
