Reviewed 8 February 2012

The room didn't look all that bad on first inspection, but we later discovered stains on the sheet, hidden by the blanket. There were also numerous mosquitoes in the bathroom.
After a hot night under a very inadequate fan, I woke up to discover bites all down one arm and my legs. I'm pretty sure they were caused by bed bugs. The fact that Hotel Elen charges 100,000 per night is laughable.
In my opinion this place should be avoided at all costs.

My bf and I checked this place out, as it suited our backpacking budget. We were quoted 4x the price that it said in the Lonely Planet (during the low season) and this place was hideous. There was literally a broken dirty toilet laying on its side right in front of the door of the room we were shown (which the management wasn't bothered by at all). The bedsheets looked soiled and disgusting and the room featured a chair frame (as in, no seat or back - what's the point?). This isn't the first disgusting hotel we encountered in Indonesia though, nor is this the first time that a place that got a good recommendation in the Lonely Planet upped their prices and stopped cleaning. Avoid like the plague, but don't be surprised if you don't find anything better for the money in Senggigi.

Room bed and bathroom were all filthy.
Not good value for money as not cheap enough to warrent staying in this filth.
Located in the centre of serengiggi, close to restaurants, market etc, but if you stay at a nicer place further out, it only costs $1 by taxi to get in to serengiggi central if you need.
I stayed one miserable night and did not stay for breakfast as did not want to risk eating here.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel

The rooms are small and basic, which is ok, but absolutely filthy. I identified 4 different kinds of stains on my bed! The bathroom was just as bad, with no flushing toilet, etc. The useless fan made our one night's stay here even more interminable. The breakfast was the only part of the experience that was tolerable: homemade pancakes. I think we paid 120,000 Rupiah, which is a lot for this. For our second night in Sengiggi, we went to a much nicer hotel down the road and paid about 200,000 (not much more), and it was beautifully clean, with towels, and a swimming pool.

Hotel Elen, Lombok
We stayed 1 night in Hotel Elen. It is really basic. The rooms are small and not that clean. There is a western toilet but it’s quite dirty. We paid 100’000 but I’ m sure you could get a better price if you try to bargain. The Hotel is in the middle of everything and you easily can reach an internet coffee, restaurants or a travel agency. In the price was breakfast included, it was coffee or tea and for sure a banana pancake. It was good and tasty.

Stayed here for one night as a necessity. Was quoted as the cheapest place in Sengiggi on the main road (our bus couldn't go into the village where there were cheaper places) but still three times the Lonely Planet price at Rp150,000 a night for a double room.

The room was tiny, which is fine, but also filthy, which is not fine. Bugs everywhere, couldn't step in the bathroom without shoes on, mould in the corners, grime on the basin. Sheets were stained and smelt so we slept on our sarongs. Woken up at 4am by local mosques, and again at 5am by the mynah bird outside our room (kept in a tiny little cage).

Unpleasant experience. We were so keen to leave the next morning, we didn't even wait for breakfast. Not worth the saving.
