      Good stay”

      I stayed for one night. Very good staff, room was clean enough. Good ac, i was able to set it so it wasn’t too freezing. Breakfast was okay and they have a water dispenser so you can fill your own bottle or make your own coffee/tea. I could see myself staying there again

      1 night stopover”

      Excellent hotel for the price. Room is small,but bed and pillows were comfortable. Shower was hot. Staff were friendly and organised taxi and a breakfast box as I had an early start. Staff supplied a map so I could walk into the centre. There are restaurants nearby or plenty of choices along the waterfront. I recommend this hotel as a short stay.

      Excellent!”

      Location was easy to find, located in the center of manado. Arround 10min to reach manado boulevard by car. We were welcomed by a staff (guy) that was very friendly and show good respect to guests. Room was spacious, clean and cozy, with creative design filling the wall. Bed was comfy. Bathroom was a bit small but it did their purpose. Hot water and water pressure worked well. TV flat with international program are provided. Air con was cold and worked well. Drinking water are provided outside room in a dispenser with choices of cold and hot water, unlimited! Breakfast were limited of choices, the fried rice is tasty though imo. But yeah its just additional comparing to other hotel (with same prices) wont even give a free breakfast. Really satisfied and recommend you to try. Value for money.

      Stop off for a night”

      We had to stop for one night on the way to the Sitaro islands, this place was perfect. Rooms were comfortable, showers warm, breakfast was ok but was so happy to see that they provide free water refills from a cooler rather than providing plastic bottles. They will call go-jek for you to get to where you need to be, really close to the harbour.

      the best place in town for this price”

      hard to imagine there is a better place in town for this price. in fact, it was probably the best quality room for the price (200k) in my 4 weeks in sulawesi. super clean, good bed, everything felt new or recently painted, great hot water shower, very helpful staff, artistic hotel and room design, hot & cold (a rarity) drinking water on every floor, and even a rooftop hangout area. i did miss complementary coffee which could be found in some other places, but with the hot water on my floor, i could easily make my own.

      Fine for one night”

      For the price you can't complain much.

      The water had a foul odor to it. The window in my bathroom was propped open and couldn't shut so I was afraid someone could easily come in while I was away. The Internet was very poor. But again, for the price it's hard to complain much...you get what you pay for. I would probably stay again for one night or so. But if my stay was longer I would probably consider other hotels.

      not clean!”

      staff were very nice and friendly

      The hotel looks clean but is actually not. To begin with the blankets are disgusting, and they do not provide sheets for blankets. So is the matt for the bathroom, even the basin has a very bad smell! These made my one night stay highly unpleasant. The good thing is that the staff are friendly and very helpful.

      service, value, wifi

      I was due to get a very early flight the next morning, so had ordered a taxi for 03.00 for a 04.30 flight. The taxi never turned up, so one of the night staff woke up a neighbor, got him to agree to lend him his car and ran me to the airport. If not I would have missed my flight. That is what I call fantastic service!!
