Mentari Hotel and Restaurant

Overpriced

What we say: 3 stars

The Mentari has whitewashed rooms that are clean and reasonably quiet while more expensive options come with TVs and air-con. Accessible outlets appear to have been deemed frivolous by whoever set up the rooms. Staff speaks no English and largely have a service style that can be described as "surly". Its inclusion as a top choice in a certain popular guidebook may explain the problem. There's WiFi, but it's incredibly slow and is sold only in inconvenient four-hour chunks, internet access being curiously hard to find in this largeish port town. Hot water here is actually hot and stays that way, a rare commodity in Indonesian hotels. Checkout time is noon, and a simple breakfast upstairs is included. There's no real reason to stay here, as it's rather overpriced for what you get, and both the Safari and the Hotel Ikhlas offer about the same quality for much lower prices, in a more convenient part of town. The restaurant upstairs has hilly ocean views (nice at sunset and sunrise) and offers the usual Ende assortment of seafood, fried rice and noodles, and chicken specialities, as well as sate and gado gado plus cold Bintang. If you want to eat elsewhere, you're in for a long walk or an ojek ride -- this isn't exactly the most exciting neighbourhood.
