Centro Bajo Hotel & Resto
Ranked #4 of 30 Labuan Bajo B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Out of 3 months of travel this hotel was my biggest disappointment.

I had a terrible reaction to Centro Bajo! I booked two nights via Agoda.com, thinking it was a bit of a treat, and discovered it was horrible and way overpriced. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere; at least a 20-25 minute walk through nothing scenic to the harbor, restaurants, and dive shops. It looks like something out of the Soviet era of architecture. The room they gave me for $25 a night had a pit toilet with no flush, cold water shower, and a window which overlooked the parking lot. The front desk staff promised that since I was diving early the next day I could have a breakfast at 6:45am. I waited in the breakfast area until 7:10am and no food was there-- the front desk staff was entirely unhelpful. I have zero idea why people choose to stay here when there are so many less expensive and/or far better quality options in town. I transferred to Gardena hotel and loved it.

Centro Bajo provides good value for its room rate.
Rooms - clean, bed was comfortable (king-sized). Only thing no hot water but then it's tropical weather so not required, more of a luxury.
Breakfast - one of the better ones we had in Flores. Wider spread than the rest and nice dining area.
Others - staff was friendly, free transfer from jetty/airport upon check-in/out. Excellent tv channels in the room! We had good movies every night.
Location - too far from town to walk. Just a 3 mins motorbike ride from Labuan Bajo main street (Rp5k in the day, Rp10k in the night - per pax).

We checked out almost every hotel in Lbj and found that for the price, Centro Bajo offers the best value.

Room Tip: Worthwhile paying for superior rooms (comes w tv which has an excellent movie channel) and plush bla...

The rooms here are clean and comfortable, and the staff is very nice and accommodating. The rooms have AC, but no hot water. According to the owner, a very nice man, they intend to add hot water at some point in the future. Also, the food at the restaurant is decent, but nothing special.

Have a nice stay at Centro Bajo. The restaurant have a good place to hang out & spend the whole day. This hotel also have sunset point, but when I get there the way to sunset point is pretty wild and little hard to find..

Room was okay, clean enough, breakfast was simple, nasi goreng with tea or coffee. Go to the city center is a bit far, but you always can find ojek, as cheap as Rp. 5.000,- to go to city center..

If you're looking for a budget cheap, comfort hotel and you don't mind to get around a little bit far from city center, I guess this is just the right hotel for you..

We stayed in centro bajo hotel for 2 nights. The building looks fine from outside. Standard room has dark room and moist inside. The room needs renovation. My room has water falling down from the air con and the bathroom's door was broken. But they served very good. The driver took us to the harbour and airport. He picked us when we needed. Thanks kak gusti!

We booked a standard twin room online. Although airport transfers were mentioned we were not offered one. Having enquired we are able to get a free transfer on our departure.
Room was basic but clean with no frills, clean sheets and towels, no soap. Free bottled water, AC worked well, no TV just a wire in the wall, but then you only get Indonesian chanels anyway in this hotel. We were offered an upgrade to the next floor but as we were on a budget the upgrade was equal to our evening meal each night. Having read other reviews we assumed everyone received complimentary afternoon coffee and snacks, no, never assume.....because we were standard accomodation we would have to pay!
As mentioned in other reviews the hotel is out of town but unless you like a brisk walk it is more like 30mins and in the heat you arrive at your destination "a bit on the sweaty side".
Yes there are bemos and oejks but it is so much nicer to be able to walk out and around from your hotel. There is no other restaurant or hotel nearby and it is situated on a very busy, noisy road.
There is nowhere to sit outdoors and the garden is such that it is built into the hillside.

We stayed here for 2 nights, before moving on to Casa Selini's, in the town.
Rooms were over priced for what they were.
Bed was comfy, and wi fi ok.
Rooms were clean, shower fine.
Food at the restaurant was not great, and had a lot of flies, which I know can not be irradiated, but they can be reduced/ controlled, other places manage.
There was something large running around inside the wall cavity on both nights (can't be controlled by the hotel I guess)
Lovely view from rooms / out on walkway, and great walk through the hotel up to 'sunset point'.
Free airport pick up was worth booking.
Bit of a long (and hot!) walk into town (and uphill on the way back), but motorbike taxi's are cheap.
