I'm reading the reviews and wondering if people stayed at the same place that I did. All the viktor compounds look nice on the outside, and for me that was where it stopped. I was told by the staff to stay in viktor 2 because it was more quiet. But the room they offered me was upstairs, closest to the street and very nosy. I asked if there were Any downstairs rooms available because they would be more quiet and they said no, even though a couple was leaving one as I arrived. I found the staff, with one exception, to be unfriendly and unhelpful, and the people there who organize transportation ask for more than the going rate on the street. I arrived in the morning and the room had not yet been cleaned and made up. When I returned at 10 pm after being out all day, it still hadn't been. There were no sheets on the bed and there were cigarette butts in the ashtray and the bathroom was dirty. The very sweet guy who manned the office at night (he's the exception) needed to round up sheets and a towel and clean the bathroom. The sink was plugged, and the bathroom smelled like a sewer (I don't know if this is the case with all rooms or just the one I was in). The corners of the ceiling were covered in cob webs, as was the small light between the two beds that had no cover and didn't work. There was no small table between the beds to put a watch or a bottle of water. It was so noisy from the street that I slept with heavy duty earplugs. The only saving grace of the room was that it was the closest to the street and picked up viktor 3's wifi.
At 100,000 rupiah for one person (I think it's the same price for two, even though I was assured I was paying less), its not expensive but also not cheap. There are plenty of other places close by at this price or even less (they were mostly full, which is why I stayed at viktor), and I'd try one of them if I were in Mataram again.
