Hotel Lila Graha

Hotel Lila Graha

It'll do at a pinch

More on Bima

The popular and central Lila Graha offers forgettable but adequate rooms in a hodge podge of buildings straddling the block between Jalan Lombok and Jalan Sumbawa.

Travelfish says:

Supposedly this was once Bima’s backpacker stalwart, and while the rates have edged up somewhat, this is a marginally better deal than the Lambitu Hotel right next door. While the standard rooms are the cheapest, it is worth upgrading to a superior if you can manage it to get a Western shower rather than a mandi. Beds are very aged, soft and bouncy, with linen about as old as the building. Bathrooms are small -- our basin and mirror was in the bedroom -- and the furnishings quite random and mismatched. Ask to see a few rooms if you can as there is quite a bit of variation between them. At least our air-con worked well. There is an attached restaurant where the included breakfast is served. Overall, this will do at a pinch, especially as you’re very unlikely to be spending more than a single night in Bima. WiFi is available in the restaurant but the groundfloor rooms barely get a phone signal. Be sure to take a look at the interior concrete grotto facade the rooms look onto -- it is spectacularly awful. Service is friendly with limited English. If you’re looking for a cheaper hotel, the bright orangish Asakota Hotel is about 300 metres down Jalan Martadinata (the road to Bima port) on your left and comes recommended from a Travelfish reader. We took a look but couldn’t find anyone to show us around when we showed up -- it looked clean. We’d guess it is around the 100,000 rupiah mark, but is a 20-minute walk into town.
