The location is a bit away from the centre, some 15 mins walk to Mega Mall. A trip to the airport takes 20 mins in light Sunday morning traffic, perhaps double that on weekdays. Quick checkin, friendly and helpful staff. The room itself was suprising pleasant, not too small, clean and functional. Comfy bed, working A/C, TV, clean bathroom, good... More

We stayed for one night on our way to Bunaken. The rooms are fantastic for the money and the location is great. The breakfast however was a shock. Bread and Jam. There was some sort of fish and rice dish but it ran out quickly so there was none left for us. The dining room is a corridor. With a... More

We actually stayed at Istanaku 2, a new building over the road. We had this place recommended to us by the dive resort that would pick us up the next day. It is a small, slightly quirky place but I really liked the feel of it. We were really well looked after from airport collection to departure. There is no... More

We stayed at Istanaku 2, the new hotel across the street from Istanaku. Very friendly and helpful staff, very clean and modern. It is exactly as shown in the pictures! The Wifi is quick, the shower warm and the laundry service is good.

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
