2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2008

We only stayed at the Dahlia for 1 night and, judging by the photos, stayed in the same VIP room. It was a Saturday night and very noisy outside and, as there's no need for A/C, nothing to block it out. The room was not clean (eg blood on the wall where I think someone had killed a mosquito some time ago), no soap, no towels, no hot water, no shower just a mandi, no top sheet - just a bedcover. Breakfast was served on the shared balcony/corridor outside - boiled egg, bread, coffee. The only reason to stay here is because it's on the 'Flores trail' and it's not the worse hotel (see Flores Sare in Moni).

Stayed September 2008
