Largely interchangeable with the Hotel Suci just down and across the road, the Dewi offers clean and functional rooms in a rambling setup running back from the main road.
Air-con rooms are spacious and cleaned daily, and include TV (Indonesian only). They could do with a coat of paint and some better power plug placement. The deluxe rooms have hot-water showers and we’d say are worth the extra money if you have six inches of Tambora dust you need to eradicate from your body -- otherwise a standard is fine. Staff speak enough English for you all to manage, and can be helpful with procuring beer. The hotel is set slightly back off the road, so the traffic noise isn’t too bad (not that Sumbawa Besar sees that much late night traffic anyway). Regardless of which room you are in, as with all the hotels around here, you will take in the morning call to prayer in all its majestic might. The hotel is also beside a school, so there won’t be any sleeping in happening here. The Hotel Suci across the road is fine as an alternative if the Dewi doesn’t do it for you -- we preferred here though.
