Reviewed September 7, 2013

I, like many, used it as a base to get to Bunaken. There is a price list at reception of all the different room types ranging from about 125,000rp to 400,000rp. Some travel sites only provide one of the more expensive options, so my advice would be to just turn up. My room cost 250,000 and was adequate. Very close to the port. Friendly reception staff. There is nothing of any interest nearby, Manado is just a typical Indonesian city.

Room Tip: Don't reserve the room first - just turn up and there should be plenty of choice, the room boy w...

We stayed for one night on the way to Bunaken. It is great location as close to the port with nice view on the sea... but there is local market from 6 am with very load speakers. Food for breakfast is very small choice and not tasty. Rooms are clean. Towels needs to be taken from receptions, Not recommended.

Maybe depends of the room you get, but we had an standard room (promo 200kIDR), not really clean (bed sheets not white anymore, with holes, ...). We were near the lift and could hear the elevator's ring every time it was coming on 4th floor...
Only good point is that the hotel is located few meters from the harbor to Bunaken, but I think some other places are better in Manado.

My wife and I stayed here for one night on our way to Sliaden island.

Location is great, literally a 2 minute walk to the harbour, which was ideal as we had to leave for Siladen island next morning.

Rooms are basic, with air conditioning and hot showers. Our room was right next to the lift so we were disturbed by a loud beep every time lift stopped on our floor, which happened very frequently even at night.

Staff were friendly, lady at Reception spoke good English.

Buffet breakfast was basic but good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from lift.

Stayed one night in their very basic but still clean room, shared bathroom 110 000 RP with including great breakfast buffe. The staff speaks good english, the whole facility is clean and tidy. Their restaurant with good wifi is a perfect place to meet fellow travellers and escape the more chaotic harbor if one wishes to do so. If youre going by boat somewhere, you cant find a better place since its located directly in the harbor.

Good value to say at least for a person who is looking for good quality dirt cheap.

Room Tip: The cheaper the better right? I heard that you can nicce view of the harbor if youre lucky.

I stayed a couple of nights in that hotel. The location is very good, right over the harbour and in the town center. There are probably some better deals elsewhere in Manado, the luxury rooms were priced around 400,000rp per night. Big, clean, nice bathroom, AC.
Breakfast was pretty poor. Staff was generally friendly and helpful, I could live the luggage for most of the day without worrying about it.

We have stayed here twice: before going to Bunaken and after coming back from Bunaken. It was convinient as it was close to the habour and they have many different rooms so reservations should not be necessary.

Our 2nd room was the better choice: standard with AC and shared bathroom. It was hot during the night so we have appreciated the AC. The shared bathroom was clean. The room was ok and had a window but the bed sheets a little dirty. Price was something around 150,000 IDR.

The first time we have had another room for about the same price (145,000) but have not been that satisfied. It had a bathroom but no AC. It was very hot during the night. Also, there have been no blankets and no window to the outside world. But there have been something like Windowless wholes in the wall that were not covered by moskito nets. Do not choose this option but the other one for same price as you will have a better sleep!

Basic breakfast is included. You need to ask for towels and toilet paper - it's not in the room but they will provide it.
