30 minutes ride by taxi to the main city.. and depend on what you are looking for
if you plan to just relax/golf or conference in the area - then it is a good choice
if you have to travel to city a lot then - not recomended
taxi can be a night mare
1st day - a security very un-profesional - and i think almost all... and while i am waiting almost 1 hour to get a taxi - the security there just acting as a bossy (sorry)
taxi to the city will cost around 40.ooo rp to 50.ooo rp - and be carefur with some taxi driver that will take you a "tour" to avoid traffic but will increase your taxi fare
taking a cab from city to the hotel also it can be a nightware.. so better keep the local taxi# and make some appointment from any hotel in city or big shopping mall
room is great - however the HK guy forgot to provide me a towel in the room - maybe they just forgot... in overall ok
the breakfast.. i came to the restaurant around 9.30 am and the food almost empty... hmmmm..
again really depend on what you are looking for... if you plan to go and do some activity in city a lot better stay in the city.. a bit expensive in city but compare to additional taxi cost and your time it will cost you the same
don't expect a good service even you are an advatage plus member... within these 2 weeks i have stay in Novotel Surabaya , Jakarta, Manado.. seems the hotel didn't care about this card.. sorry
and the hotel is not really provide a competitive price in manado while i am paying higher compare to the promotion done in local newspaper for the same period i am staying.. ?
not really worthed having the advantage card..
