High on a hill lived a lonely goatherd… the Hotel Edelweis conjures up images of lederhosen and thigh slapping, but none was to be had here. Though it is up in the mountains of the beautiful volcanic island of Flores and the hotel is one of few decent places to stay in Bajawa. In the centre of Bajawa, the hotel is opposite 2 decent restaurants and surrounded by small shops for all your water and toiletry needs. A bemo (local bus) stops at the top of the road.
Friendly but not exactly homely. The rooms are simple (cold water and all) and there is a communal area for breakfast.
This hotel is very basic. The bed however is comfortable enough to allow a good night sleep. The location is good because there is a good restaurant called Lucas just in front and a small shop where u can buy some water and snacks.
The room was on top and it has a reallh nice view, it has warm water and clean room, a newer one in the back of the hotel — was interesting in its own. The room was extremely basic consisting of a bed, two small pieces of furniture, a clothes drying rack, and a few lights. Thankfully it was clean and free of bugs and odors.the restaurant across the street had a good menu. The food was average.
The new building is set back from the road behind the main building so is quieter then the cheaper older rooms. The bed was comfortable enough – take a sleeping bag liner to Flores as the cleanliness of the sheets is questionable in many places. The room itself was reasonably clean. The bathroom was basic (tho better then in Ruteng) and there was cheap hot water buckets available.
Facilities: breakfast was ok. There is no restaurant nor internet.
