Golo Hilltop Hotel & Restaurant

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 July 2014

comfortable settings not luxurious, but the view from the deluxe room was breath taking. I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in Flores. Downtown is only a 15 minutes walk, and the sunsets here are just serene.

Room Tip: Lots of stairs, if you are not up to the task get the lower level rooms. No lifts here.

Ahhhh... The views are all stunning from the room, the restaurant and the pool. When I first did the research online, I thought that the photos must have been digitally enhanced? But the place is exactly what it looks like from the photos!
The Deluxe room & its bathroom is spacious, comfortable and very clean. Our favorite part of the room must be porch, we spent hours on it - reading books, listening to music or just watching the sunset. Spectacular sunsets have become part of the routine during our 3 nights stay.
WiFi connection is fast and strong.
Air-conditioning and heater in the shower works very well.
Fridge and electric kettle is provided in the room as well.
Although there is not much variety on the restaurant menu (one page), the food is ok.
For entertainment at night, there is a live band at the Paradise Bar & Restaurant. It's a nice place to chill and just 5 minutes walk downhill.

Room Tip: The Deluxe room is absolutely worth the price! More privacy, better views and more spacious as well.

We had a great stay at Golo Hilltop for 4 nights. Judith and Ingrid are really quick to respond by email and are very helpful once you arrive. We stayed 2 nights in the deluxe room (the best views!) And 2 in the standard room. Both were really clean and comfortable with good air con and the mini fridge which was a nice touch. The whole property was so clean, which we really appreciated after seeing some of the hygiene standards at other places in town.
The food was decent but limited options. The pineapple pancakes were awesome.

The view is the best in town, and the pool area is awesome for taking it it. We would stay here again in a heart beat.

Stayed one night only on a trip out to Komodo and Rinca. The location is stunning. the views amazing. Rooms large, clean and with good shower and balcony. Used pool only briefly in morning but what a setting,towels provided. Breakfast fine and we did have evening meal here as we were tired from our trip. Small menu but food was sufficient. Lovely gardens and flowers.
Lots of steps so not for the less mobile. Some handrails could have been helpful. Not far into town if you did wish to go or as stated bar down hill nearby. A small but superbly located hotel with a fantastic view.

It seems that everything has already been covered here, all I can do is to add my enthusiastic agreement to all of the positive reviews!
In regards to the walk into town (several earlier reviews mentioned this as a problem), I did this twice a day (sometimes at night) and it was no problem at all. A fifteen minute walk down (and back up) a moderate hill. The town itself, while not the most pristine (OK, it's "third world"), is perfectly safe - the worst thing you'll likely experience is people asking "Where are you going?" which seemed to be the local way of offering assistance/starting up a friendly conversation.

Our stay here was brief but very enjoyable. The hotel consists of separate rooms arranged over the hillside with a main reception and cafe bar. It's quite a simple place but very well done, and for the price I don't think can be beaten. For me it's preferrable to a large hotel. We were collected from the airport and had a relaxing night before setting off for Komodo National Park. A short walk down the hill is Paradise Bar which is great for watching the sunset, and we enjoyed a lovely buffet. However, the walk back was pitch black! I'd definitely return and stay for longer.

I am not a sunbaking kind of person, but the pool and the views at the Golo Hilltop are what would make me come all the way back to this corner of the earth time and time again. The hotel is fairly simply, but it is clean, the beds are comfortable, the air-conditioning and fans work, the hot water is reliable, but most of all it has the most stunning views right from your bedroom window, and if that's not enough, every room has its own little balcony so you can sit and watch the sunset while drinking a bintang! We had died and gone to heaven and honestly didn't want to leave this place. At approx. $40aud per night (for air-conditioned room) we rated this as paradise. Don't be mislead though, this is not a typical 'resort' with room service and cocktails served by the poolside (or maybe it does - I didn't try!), it is more simple but like I said it's very clean and comfy. We used it for 2 singular night stays either side of our overnight boat trip to Komodo and Rinca Islands. Judith and Ingrid were extremely helpful in the lead-up to our stay helping with arrangements for our Komodo boat trip. Their service was outstanding, and I would definitely recommend people to stay here. It is about a 10 minute walk to town, perfect distance as it's not too far away, yet far away enough to have unspoilt views and less noise. Can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: If you're not so fit then request a room on the same level as reception, the views are just as g...
