As soon you arrive the welcome is very warm. We had a lovely stay mostly because of the nice staff. The room is clean, we had a seperate sitting room and a sit outsight. What more do you need! In the morning a lot of tasty banana pancakes!

A very basic place but charming. Small rooms, cold showers (but not a problem in the heat). Breakfast is very basic and realy nothing special. You have to pay for the wifi but the kids figured out a cheat! also you have to pay for the ac!

Since there is not a big choice of guesthouses, it was quite ok. The rooms have only a bed and an AC. The shower is just cold, but for the hot weather its ok. Don't expect anything. The breakfast is ok. Next to the hotel there is the village generator, which makes it very loud, but in the room its... More

We were glad to find this place to stay in Riung. The hotel was nice enough with a garden, dining room and snorkling service. It is next to a power plant but you hardly notice it. staff was friendly. Breakfast very basic. The hotel is next to Murah Meriah, a lovely warung to eat. At nighttime you can browse the... More

Our room and bathroom was clean enough, everything here is really basic. This is a good accomodation if you only want to sleep! DO NOT EAT in their restaurant, its not worth the money. After the long drive to Riung we have been exhausted and wanted to have a quick dinner and a cold beer. First we´ve been surprised about... More

I don't think there are many choices in Riung and this one is probably the best but still far from being even a mediocre place.The rooms are spacious but not well kept. The bathroom was in tragic condition. The toilet didn't flash so the bucket near it had a purpose. Although there was an air-con in the room, the upper... More

Really enjoyed our stay at this simple lodging. The rooms and bath rooms were very clean. The staff were especially kind, friendly and helpful. The biggest point was the honesty of their staff.

We stayed during 2 nights at Pondok SVD. As LP says, it's near the town's electricity generator so some rooms might become noisy (it was ok for us since we sleep with earplugs). No real service or reception, but the girls managing the place are always reachable. OK breakfast available early which is good. Note that it's a bit further... More
