        Once again at Golo Hilltop”

        view, pool, quite

        My 3rd time at Golo Hilltop, and if I go back to Labuan Bajo again, I will for sure stay there again. The cabins(room) are nice and clean, the staff and owners are very helpful, this year they was a very helpful when my plane got cancelled, they called around and tryed to get me an new flight out, and whan I had to stay one more night and they where full, they got Peter to drive me around to find a new place to stay. Thank you! The pool is amazing with a great veiw from it over the ocean, the surrunding are nice. They have not as big dinner menu as they used to have since Labuan Bajo is growing and getting nore resturants downtown,, but the ones they serve is good food.

        Location & bay room view, swimming pool, food

        We had a truly enjoyable stay at Golo Hilltop. The view from the room, dining and swimming pool is simply mindblowing. To enjoy the breathtaking view from the swimming pool and room is an experience in itself. The staff were courteous and gratefully packed breakfast for us as we were leaving early morning. The rooms were extremely quiet and clean (the WC in the bathroom could have been cleaner though). The evening sunset was simply unforgettable. I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Labuan Bajo. People having trouble walking or climbing are advised to request rooms closer to reception.

        View, quick and helpful staff

        My husband and I stayed overnight before our live-on-board the next day. With the way the staff pays attention to you, wouldn't expect this to be a one-star hotel. They were quick, attentive and helpful. Even let us borrowed an adaptor for our charger for the rest of our trip in Labuan Bajo. Location, given the size of Labuan Bajo even though this is slightly out it was no problem. I am a slow-walker and it took me less than 15 minutes to walk to the city center and the walk was enjoyable with greeneries on the left and the sea on the right - but do becareful of cars and motorcycles as there are no pedestrian side. No TV in room but I thought it was smart of them to have a fan AND aircon. Aircon does take a while to cool things down so in the meantime the fan was really helpful. Also, who needs TV when you look outside. Clean bathroom with good air pressure, please do note that water can be scarce in Labuan Bajo so be mindful. I'm not too keen on the food (I am a picky a eater) I find them too oily but there juices are refreshing. All in all, would definitely come back if I'm ever in the area again.

        Wonderful Oasis - quite, beautiful, excellent pool”

        pool, view, staff

        Golo is a nice oasis in Labuan Bajo and was by far the best value place to stay. We stayed for one night before a 3 day liveaboard and loved it. We would have stayed on the back-end of the diving trip but unfortunately it was booked. Golo is situated up a hill about a 5 minute drive from town and it is nice to have a gorgeous view and a nice and quite place. The pool is fabulous and you can get food and drinks served right there. The whole property is extremely well taken care of and is beautiful. Each room has a little porch which is great to sit out on and read / enjoy the view. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with taxis, etc. The room was clean and the bathroom was as well - also AC which is a must! The wifi worked well when we were there so I believe they have resolved any previous issues. The food was good enough too that you didn't have to head into town unless you wanted to. It was also the cheapest option at the time I booked which was an extra perk! Highly recommend!!!

        View, cleanliness, Mosquito net

        Definitely the best Place to stay in Labuan Bajo! Walking distance to the town (15 minutes to the center of Labuan Bajo, 20 minutes back because of the hill and me missing fitness...), silent place to sleep, spectacular view, especially from the upper (a little bit more extensive) bungalows (our was Nr. 10), good breakfast (great banana pancake). Absolutely worth the money. Nice and clean pool, you can easily spend a day at the hotel. For us, the cleanliness was most important. For Asia it is very, very clean. And the Mosquito net is made of cotton and protects from mosquitos and to cold air from the AC ;-) I recommend this Hotel to everybody who wants to visit Labuan Bajo! Only booking a Tour is a little bit cheaper in the town.

        Best Value Hotel in Labuan Bajo”

        This is my 1st time to visit Labuan Bajo and Komodo National Park, and I found this hotel from Agoda. The hotel and facility is very clean. The view from it's swimming pool and cafe is very awesome. My friend ask me "if I visit Paraxxxx Bar to see the sunset". I said 'no' then I show him picture of the view from hotel, and he was surprised. The staff is also friendly, can speak English. And the breakfast is also good (egg, bread, fruit). And the service is excellent. Before I arrive to Labuan Bajo, they already offer me for airport pickup. And help me to rent motorbike. I am regret only stay one night in this hotel, next time I visit Labuan Bajo, I will be stay in this hotel again.

        Best choice in Labuan Bajo”

        Great view, good value

        this hotel sits on the hills above labuan bajo, about 15 minutes away from the town centre. and that's one of the reasons i love it so much. generally labuan bajo is not a travel destination sort of place, most people come here in transit to other places in flores such as komodo island. i don't like the messy town centre at all. this hotel is quiet and enjoys the best view, the flowers and bird life around is also great. you don't need to go to the town for food or bar, the hotel offers great food, also you can walk to paradise bar very close by, where is the place anyone in labuanbajo goes to anyway. the rooms are nice and clean with a safety locker, and a/c as option, which are really necessary for this place. while other non-sense equipment for a budget room are absent, such as tv or bath tub, i think they put the money to the best use.highly recommended.

        This has to be one of the best hotels for relaxing in Labuan Bajo, Komodo. Clean, Comfortable rooms with spectacular views overlooking the bay which can be seen while languishing in the swimming pool. The managers and staff are very friendly and are keen to make their guests feel at home. Not far to walk down to the town for those that don't want to eat in the restaurant. Would definitely stay at Golo Hilltop again.

        Welcome home”

        Location, pool, friendly staff

        I was made to feel very welcome when I returned recently to Golo Hilltop. There are now (or will soon be) a lot of larger resort properties to choose in Labuan Bajo, but I much prefer a small friendly place. The location is excellent on top of the hill, and the road which has been pretty rough is now being re-surfaced. It's a few minutes walk to the town, but the onsite restaurant is good and reasonably priced, and pretty much everything else you need can be arranged.

        Quiet and peaceful”

        A lovely, well priced hotel on the hill above Labuan Bajo. The location is quiet, and has great views, so if you don't want to be amid the traffic and noise of town, this is the place to be! It's still easy to access town - as its downhill all the way, get a taxi back if you don't fancy the walk back up the hill (IDR50,000). Gardens and pool area are also really nice. I would definitely head back here if I'm ever back in Labuan Bajo. Only potential negative is that there are a lot of steps to some of the rooms which might be an issue if mobility is restricted.

        stayed at golo hilltop for 12 nights, had a very nice stay and will most likely stay there again if i get back to labuan bajo. it is a bit away from the centre, which is good since it is quite, no motorbikes or honking horns. with a rented motorbike it take 7 minutes to the centre. they got a pool in january, which make the stay very pleasent, and every room, the resturant and the pool give you one amazing view of the ocean.

        Golo is located less than 10 mins drive from the airport, and only 10-15 mins walk from Labuan Bajo, just be careful on the road as there are many curves and no footpath. The rooms all have beautiful views of the bay, with the higher rooms having the best views. Rooms are nicely furnished and very clean, with safe, fridge, mosquito nets etc. Breakfast was small but tasty, and the pool is nice for relaxing. Staff were very kind and understanding of our special request. Thank you Golo!

        Awesome views, well-managed hotel, reasonable restaurant

        This is an excellent hotel with superb views of the coastline and numerous islands. The hotel is well managed and all the staff seem very good. The restaurant is reasonable (probably better than most options in town) and is in a great setting. We booked two Deluxe Rooms for our family of 4 ($US 90 for both, or $US 100 if booked through Agoda). This hotel is built on a hill with many steps leading from the restaurant / pool level up to the rooms, although the Standard Rooms are on the same level as the pool. This is not an issue unless you are old and have weak knees. The 'Deluxe Rooms' are really no more than basic rooms, but they include Air-con. All types of rooms appear to have excellent views. The town of Labuan Bajo is about 1 klm away which can be reached on foot downhill (but you will get hot and sweaty) or 20,000 IRP ($USD 2) for a ride. It will cost half that to come back. The town is in a superb setting on a bay with lots of boats and surrounded by close-by islands, all seemingly unspoilt. But the town itself, apart from being interesting, is a bit of a dump and not attractive to explore once you have got over the initial curiosity phase. However, there is some development occurring with some new hotels and restaurants being built. But the hotel is a good choice and we're glad we came to Labuan Bajo because the setting was spectacular (and unexpected) and the day trip we did to Rinca Island, seeing about 8 or 9 komodo dragons in the wild was rewarding and different and enjoyable.

        A great little splurge !”

        The view, the room, the hot water !

        This was a splurge for us as we tend to be budget travellers and this was definitely a cut above and worth every penny ! There's nothing negative that I can say about Golo Hilltop. The view is mesmerizing; I think I took a photo every time I went out onto my front porch. Thee rooms are lovely and clean, the bed extremely comfortable and the showers full of hot water and good pressure. The breakfast is good; eggs and warm rolls with jam and butter or a banana pancake, fresh fruit, coffee and tea. The staff and owners were helpful and the walk down the hill into town a nice bit of exercise. The food at the restaurant isn't stellar, but tasty enough, and there are many other options, most notably the night market at the bottom of the hill. I would highly recommend Golo Hilltop. It's one of the nicest places I've stayed in a long while.

        Obviously the hotel is pretty old but it’s extremely well maintained. The room is well equipped, it even has a fridge and a safety box. The staff has been really nice and helpful.

The pool was really great and you have a pretty good view. The negative thing is the location since you have to walk 10 mins into town. Will book again when we come to Labuan Bajo.

        Ocean view and swimming pool”

        View, swimmingpool, quite location

        My 2nd stay at Golo, and will for sure be back if I go to Labuan Bajo. Good location 15/20min walk out of town, not much traffic passing by the hotel. Good food at resturant, no need to go downtown for food. I have used it as base for day diving , and have found it excelent this 2 times. Good worikng wifi, not very fast, burt works fine.

        Fabulous small hotel”

        Spectacular views, wonderful proprietess, spacious simple rooms

        we cannot recommend golo hilltop too highly! we spent two nights here. our room was one of the highest two rooms, and the view from our veranda over the bay beneath was breathtaking. there was a lovely new pool, and the flowering gardens were a delight. judith also arranged an overnight two say cruise to rinca and komodo for us that was simply idyllic. we were the only passengers on the boat, and we enjoyed island treks, superb snorkeling, and elaborate, multi-dish feasts at every meal. for a hotel of it's class, you could not possibly do better than golo hilltop!

        An oasis in a shanty town ! ”

        This hotel is great for all travellers (backpackers, holiday makers etc). This view is breathtaking and the pool area and restaurant/bar are perfectly positioned. We stayed in a clean, spacious deluxe twin room - it was worth spending the extra 30,000 rupiah for the view! Stay for longer than you think at this hotel as a day milling about by the pool would be dreamy. Labuan Bajo itself is much more raw than other typical indonesia tourist destinations- and this is in its favour. Do try the fish market for supper and do not miss out on the tour of the Komodo National park(in particular Padar Island and Manta Point). We reccomend bartering with the hotel tour guides as they often have their own tour business not connected to the hotel which is more than half the price-(and was without a doubt the highlight of our trip!). The staff are v helpful and friendly!

        Peace and beautiful views”

        This place is really peaceful and quiet, and for us it was nice to be away from the busy main street after a few days in Labuan Bajo, while still being within walking distance down to town and harbour. The room was nice and we had gorgeous views from our terrace. The pool area was nice too. The only thing we would have liked is more vegan options for breakfast. All we could have was fruit, everything else had egg and milk in it.
