Over the years I have spent many days (as long as a week) staying at this Hotel.
I have never experienced an unclean room there and in fact, I find the staff during the day always cleaning. They do have a low level wifi service down in the dining area but sometimes, especially early in the morning or late at night, you must get the night watchman to turn the router on. Over the years I have found the staff to remain consistent in personnel and in service.
For those who are working on their Spanish (or Spanish isn't very good) they do have Staff who speak fairly good English at the front desk during the normal daytime hours.
They do shut the front doors at 10:00 pm and you must knock on the door (maybe bang sometimes) to get the night watchman to let you in (minor hassle).
I have never tried all the rooms there but I do know they have some that will fit most people's budget. Remember, if you get a cheaper room don't expect to get the "view or the location" some rooms are located in some very (potentially) noisy areas.
I have my special room I request (nope not telling) it is small but has all the things I am looking for when I visit Flores. Actually the hotel, is located in a very convenient part of the Island. Right across the street from one of my favorite restaurants with good food and archaeology talk.
A reminder, the Island is round and you can casually walk around it in 20 minutes. So, if you go in one direction and realize your a distance away from where your going. Turn around and go the other way it may be quicker; experience speaking! Too, go up to the church and go over the main hill (the only one and one which is the remains of long ago ruins) down the other side to get around the island. Thus, the Hotel is conveniently located or everything else is conveniently located near the hotel. Have fun!!
