This is a great value hotel if you're after an inexpensive stopover in Manado. The place has the feel of an upmarket hostel with bright, modern designs and pleasant communal seating areas on each floor. The gentleman at reception went out on his motorbike at midnight to get us some food after a late check in on our part, which really went above and beyond the call of duty. There's also complementary water available at water coolers on each floor, which is a nice touch. The rooms are spotless and have good aircon and hot water showers which are not always provided at this price range. My only real complaint was the totally lacklustre breakfast which was a couple of slices of white bread and some cold noodles. There really wasn't much food available so we gave up and had breakfast elsewhere.

Greeted with a warm, friendly smile, check-in was quick and efficient. Our bags were brought up to our room.
We booked a superior room, which we later found out was not much different than a standard. A standard seems to only have a small window overlooking the side wall whereas the superior has a large window, located at the front of the building.

The air con was switched on prior to our arrival, it was great coming into a cooled room. The room was spacious and light. The shower room is small but clean.

There's a cafe downstairs, it serves basic but nice local food - just order it 30minutes before you're hungry. Sometimes it can be a long wait!

Istanaku is perfect for your stopover in Manado. It's modern, clean and comparable to a travel lodge in the UK.

Just a good place for a one night stay (manado is the place to hop on and off to Bunaken). Clean and comfy rooms and a good price! I stayed as well in Celebes (recommended in the lonely planet) but this one is much better!

Had been stayed here for 1 night. With that rate, the hotel is surprisingly clean and comfortable with modern style.
the concept is minimalist.

Though the breakfast is quite standard.

Overall.. it's good to stay here :)

We stayed for One Night on our Way to Siladen Island. The Staff was very friendly And helpfull And still there when we arrived at 1.00 in the Morning. The Place itself is very noisy And you netter bring earplugs. The rooms were ok but stunk extremely from These Little chemical balls they sometimes put in bathrooms or toiletts. For our Western noses this smell was just terrible. Apart from this the rooms were clean which was good. Breakfast consisted of fried Rice with some awfull meatball in it And some soup with the Same Kind of meatball. Or white Toast. I Must admitt that we are complicated with breakfast but this was just awfull. So all in all the Place is good for an overnightstop
