As this is one of the few hotels in Labuan Bajo where they take reservations a couple of days in advance (in most other places you have to show up/call in the morning after check-out time to see if any rooms are available...), we stayed at this hotel for 2 nights.
Our first night's stay we arrived rather late from a Komodo boat trip, and were really pleased they hadn't taken other guests (as accomodation in high season is rather scarce) in our absence. We've stayed in 2 different rooms (a standard fan room, and their fancier A/C room), and both were rather big and had an authentic charm. All rooms have an adjacent terrace with a nice view where you get your breakfast served in the morning. Unfortunately, even though in the evening we asked to have our breakfast at a specific time, both times we've had to go to the kitchen in the morning to remind them, as the time had not been properly communicated.
Another downside: the 2nd, fancier room we stayed in, was really quite dirty: their dog had taken a pee in the room, dust was accumulating on every horizontal surface, the ashtray had not been emptied....really not worth the extra 100 000 Rp!
There's a really nice bar/restaurant next to the hotel, Paradise Bar, popular among tourists, but if you want a good night's sleep, you better bring earplugs as the party can go on for quite a while.
