The staff are the friendliest I've ever encountered and really go the extra mile to make your stay pleasant. The bed was very comfortable and the cable tv worked well. The rooms are also spotlessly clean. On the downside the wifi doesn't work. There's only one computer in the lobby for guests to use and the internet connection there is... More

The guesthouse is more or less centrally located. The staff is extremely nice and helpful, they took me personally to the harbor when I needed to get a boat to Bunaken and made sure I was on the right one. I called ahead for an airport pickup that was on time and easy. The breakfast is not great, but totally... More

Nice clean rooms with A/C and cable TV. A good option if in transit mode for a day or two. Economy rooms are a bit small and bathrooms are also small but the water is hot, beds comfy, good lobby WIFI and a nice outside rooftop terrace on the 3rd floor

Very nice, european-like hotel. Nice comfy bed, hot water, bathroom looks good. Breakfast is a bit poor but they serve normal indonesian food - nasi (rice) & mie (noodles), no ayam, of course :)) + coffe and tea of course. Close to the central part of the city and to the best chinese restaurant in town - Noodle House. Must... More

Visit manado for leisure for 3 days. This place is quite simple yet i dont need fancy one, because most of my time will spent outside. This place suitable enough for me, near city, easy access to remember, price is good. Room is clean, bathroom okay, maybe the tv connection need improvement. Quite also, and good choices for backpacker traveller.

I've stated in nice hotels, scummy motels, secluded B&B's, and hostels on busy streets. I've stayed in hotels on top of bars, restaurants, and strip joints. Istanaku is the loudest place I've ever stayed, by far; and the noise all comes from inside. The hallways are like echo chambers, somehow magnifying any sound made into a cacophony even earplugs do... More

Istanaku is a nicely located overnight option in Manado convenient esp. if you are taking a car to Gorontalo or a ferry to Bunaken. It costs approx. 22usd for a double room which is not the best value for money taking into account that: - WiFi is only available in the reception area. No signal in the rooms - AC... More

This was a very good place to stay for one or two nights. For 1 night the standard room offers just enough space. I would stay in one of the bigger rooms if I would stay more nights. The room has a very good bed, a nice warm shower and is very clean. The breakfast is alright but basic. The... More
