If you have no need to stay in Bima town centre, then Hotel Mutmainah is the best choice. The hotel is located in suburb Raba, at 3 km from Bima market. While we were there, a NGO held a conference at Mutmainah.

The older rooms are in a converted house, a row of additional rooms has recently been built in the spacious grounds. The rooms are well equipped with rather posh furniture. Hot water system worked perfectly, but we found a toilet seat defective.

Rates (July 2011):
In the new extension: one presidential suite at Rp 990,000 , one suite at Rp 675,000, seven VIP rooms at Rp 450,000.
In the converted house: one VIP room at Rp 450,000, several superior rooms Rp 330,000.
As we stayed more than one night we were offered a 10% discount.

Unique Qualities: The hotel has a good, airy restaurant, which serves a buffet breakfast (included) even if occupancy is low.
A souvenir shop specializes in original Bima apparel. In the courtyard one can daily admire a young woman weaving traditional cloth.
There also is a swimming pool, but it stood empty. When we asked about this, they said they had been cheated by the man supposed to install the water filter system.

Address: Jalan Gajah Mada, Raba, Bima regency.
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: From the market go west along Jalan Hasanuddin which changes name into Jalan Gajah Mada (NOT along Jalan Sukarno Hatta as our Lonely Planet guide says). You arrive when there start to be open spaces between the houses.
