Basicly they has clean room, if you wanna stay in this hotel, bring your own toiletries (include towel).
And don't forget to bring mosquito repellent.
There's some restaurant nearby, but if you don't wanna going anywhere, you can order food here before 8.30 pm.

My friends and I stayed here for 2 nights to explore Ende and trek Kelimutu park.

An airconditioned room enough to accomodate 3 people and bathroom inside for IDR 250,000 is cheap. Bathroom is clean and everything is basic including bread+coffee/tea breakfast worth the price. Wifi is strong and free.

Just walk 10 minutes to get to the airport. You can hear when planes taking off and landing.

Its more suitable to cater business travelers rather than tourists, but some tourists prefer to stay here since it is cheap and clean.

Mr Jamal Alhaddad the owner runs this family business from his father. He's a pleasant yet resourceful person to chat with. He is also head of hotel association in Ende. He can recommend you places to go and his knowledge about Flores is undoubted.

I choose this hotel as it was recommended by the lonely planet.

At first sight my room looked all right. It could maybe use some refreshing. It had a strange petrol like smell.

When I came back of a walk downtown there were at least 10 huge cockroaches. I went complaining at the reception and asked to have another room. This was not possible. One of the girls came to spray some stuff to kill them. Now I know where the petrol like smell came from. Then I had 10 dead cockroaches in the room.

If you like cockroaches then this is your place.

I stayed here with a friend for 1 night during my visit to Ende.
I choosed a room with twin beds, an inside bathroom, and a fan.
50 thousands rupiah per person per night.

The room was pretty basic, the bed's small but enough for me (I'm 1.85m tall), the fan's working properly, only 1 power outlet, and there's 1 table with 1 chair, the lamp's bright enough, the bathroom is small and clean with no shower.

During our stay, we want to drive around town, so we decided to rent a bike, the hotel provided a motorbike rental, 100 thousands rupiah for 24 hour, its a pretty ok price, considering the shop across the street offered us a bike for 100 thousands rupiah for 12 hours.

The restaurant served food with cheap price, I ordered fried rice with fish (15thousands) and a cheese sandwich(7thousands), the fried rice's nothing special but the cheese sandwich's so delicious.

The downsides're the breakfast which was only a small bread and a tea, no free towel, no free shampoos or stuff like that, oh and no free mineral water, but you can buy all of that stuff at the shop across the street.

Just one thing, I suggest you choose the room with aircon, because Ende's proximity to the sea, the climate can be very hot.

Room Tip: Choose a room with aircon

I chose to stay at this hotel after viewing (and rejecting) another hotel situated two doors away based on it's design - it seemed very open and stark to me. This hotel had pleasant rooms towards the back - each with A/C, a porch with 2 seats and a small table, basic bathroom with cold water. it was October and getting quite hot so that was OK for me.
The beds were comfortable and the mattresses seemed quite new. Bedding was fresh and clean. I'm not sure I would want a non A/C room though due to the mosquito factor.
Some rooms close to the TV area could be noisy depending on number of patrons watching TV and their desired noise level.
All of the staff were friendly and as others have pointed out, this hotel is extremely handy to the airport.

The rooms are very basic, but clean. The owner is really friendly and helpful. It is near the airport and about 15 mins walk to the city centre. For backpackers its a good place to stay. We paid about 120.000 rp for a better room upstairs. Food at the hotels restaurant was okay and cheap.
The included breakfast was pretty poor.

You could not tell is in the center of town, since Ende has no center as such, but it's well situated, very close to the airport (5 min. walking), across the road from an internet cafe and 5 minutes by motorbike from the bus station. The place is spotless and well looked after. The price of a double room is fair (150.000 if I recall properly) but don't expect a great breakfast for that money, just a simple coffee/tea and a piece of bread. Food is excellent and good value, although you need no rush. It takes forever (meaning they cook it just for you!) but people are nice, willing to help and always there for you.

More than recommendable!!!

Room Tip: Try not to be at the entrance. You are close to the tables and the TV, therefore it will be noisier...
