The general look of most of Lewoleba’s buildings is sedate verging on the dull, so the three-storey Olympic, which for all intents and purposes is a typical Indonesian mini-hotel, with its bright primary stripes and glass frontage shakes up the scene considerably. Like the street frontage, at a glance the rooms appear modern, but don't expect cosmopolitan mini-hotel standards.

Modern, plainly decorated rooms.

The tile-floored rooms are well-sized, with a small TV, chilled air-con and sliding glass doors which open onto compact balconies offering views of the carpark, Jalan Trans Lembata and the mountains in the distance. The bed is comfortable, with a single top sheet, a Dutch wife and a decorative sash. The rooms have heavy curtains so the sun won't be waking you up, but rooms catch the traffic noise (not that Lewoleba has much traffic to speak of). The cheapest rooms are cold water only and the bathroom facilities are basic but newer than what is on offer at the nearby Rejeki.

A simple buffet breakfast is included in the room rates and is served in a small ground floor cafe.

For two people looking for an air-con room, here is only marginally more expensive than the Hotel Rejeki, with a significant increase in standards, but we preferred the vibe at the latter.
