Istanaku Guesthouse
Ranked #3 of 49 Manado B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2013

For the price, in Indonesia, this is a good basic hotel. The rooms appear new/refurbished and are clean and bright inside. The bathroom iwas spotless and there is hot continuous hot water.The inclusive breakfast is plentiful, especially for noodle and rice lovers.
It was also,suprisingly for a city centre relatively quiet.
The hotel is relatively easy to get to from the airport, changing microlets (small busses) once. Its about a 15 minute walk to the harbour.

when i arrived at Manado, i choosed this place for my first night.. and when i saw the interior room, i like it.. all things in good condition and arrange well..
i got TV(although bad signal), WiFi, and Hot(It works) and cold water, and breakfast.
The staff is friendly, u may ask anything u want to know about the city..
but i dissapointed about the electricity,when i was there it is suddenly goes off and suddenly goes on, it happened hundred times,, i hope now they have fixed it so the guest can be more satisfy..
in my opinion, this place is far from interesting place like restaurant or maybe mall, so i little bit difficult to found any place to eat, but for the price it is really good for us who only have thick pocket.. Hope u can enjoy this place..

Nice and helpful staff, clean and modern rooms, a little noisy at night
liked staying there, the staff explained how to use the microlets and booked our next hotel for us, I can recommend staying there. It's good for the budget too
Nice

Someone else booked this hotel for us so no idea ehat to expect.. Its very good value for money. 30 us$per night. Free water, tv, closet space and helpful and friendly staff. Down sides; close to the road (noisy) and if you cannot walk stairs very well, skip this guesthouse.

The Istanaku is a short ride from the harbour on a secondary street.

Front desk people were most helpful and spoke English well.

The rooms are spacious and very clean.

There are mothballs in the washrooms, presumably to deodorize.

We spent here 1 night in a double room. The room was tiny, no space for anything, it was very smelly and humid inside. It was a non smoking room, but the people next door were smoking inside their room with the door open, so our room was all smoked, I complaint and they told them to close the door but kept smoking. They were also very noisy kept talking and yelling until 4am, we have to ask them to be quiet. It was hard to contact the staff 'cause there's no phone in the room and you have to go down 3 very steep floors, and also these really sketchy people were outside so we would have to pass them, not nice, and when they finally shut up the mosque start yelling, great night!
Breakfast is just fine, fried rice and toast.

Room Tip: Don't take the rooms on the 3rd floor, is a long way and they're very isolated.
