Very nice and clean hotel! Best breakfast we had in Flores. Thanks Marie for giving us tips for arranging flights and trips with the motorbike. The people in bajawa are very friendly. Its worth going to the hot springs and traditional village by motorbike.

When I booked, I knew it was only for 1 night: all full! But Maria found a solution and I could join 2 other girls, travelling solo. We hired Alfons + car for the next day and didn't regret it! Happy Happy serves the best breakfast in Flores ! I can recommennd this hotel.

The rooms are clean and spacious, but there are no closets and only one bench to put your suitcase on. The "bathroom" is very small, with only a toilet and a shower right next to it. When you take a hot shower, everything is wet, I'm not happy about that. In the hall is a large table where you can... More

We stayed here one night traveling from Moni to Labuan Bajo. I think the other reviews are very (too) positive. Bajawa doesn't offer many hotels. HH is a basic hotel along a busy road with lots of traffic. There is a little terrace, which is also located on the site of the road. Inside it offers a nice central space... More

This review is based on lies. We have a house for drivers and they all get breakfast. If the house is full they have to look for a different place. The hotel is not responsible for drivers because this is the responsibility of the travel agent. The drivers all get a budget from the agencies to eat and sleep. If... More

The Night we left for the vulcano we had some bread and cheese to go. Would have been nice to have some... More

I don't understand the bad reviews for this place. Comfy beds, hot water, the owners waited for us to arrive and then served us complimentary tea and coffee. Marianne, one of the owners, even kindly booked another place for us because HHH was fully booked when our plans changed and we got to Bajawa early. They are super attentive and... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night. The hotel is clean and looks nice, the rooms are nice, they have a hot water shower and working wifi, so the price is reasonable.

We arrived without a reservation and found out the hotel was fully booked. Marien, the dutch owner of the hotel immediately placed some calls around town to find out if any of the other hotels had rooms available and offered us some tea. Great help for some stranded travellers, would have loved to stay here.
