Sorong does not really have a center: it is one long strip from the coast inland. The Luxio is located on the furthest point of this strip inland: close to the airport, but far from anything else.
The rooms are clean, have airco and a safe, a big bathroom and good beds, but feel a bit too lived in: some bits of wood have broken off, the mirror in the bathroom is oxydised, our furniture had some burn marks from cigarettes.
The room smelled fresh, and the airco was quite silent, so we had a good night sleep.
The restaurant attached to the hotel is small, but has a wide selection of local dishes. We asked for the food to be brought to our room, as most of the people in the restaurant were smoking. The food was good.
Breakfast was basic and very local. There was not much choice for someone with a western pallette, but there was congee, spicy stir fried vegetables, some fish head dish and toast with marmelade or chocolate spread.
Staff are very friendly, but speak very little English.
We used this hotel as an overnight stay on our way to Raya Ampat, and it was fit for our purpose. I would recommend a more central location if you would be staying longer and would like to try some of the local restaurants.More
