Being on the main road in Sorong, it's a given that it will be noisy, although not something every guest will think through before booking. If you're a light sleeper, this will be your nightmare. We'd paid extra for one of the better rooms which had a window, I've heard others don't, they might be quieter.
Although the bed and furniture were new and comfortable, the bathroom was severely over-looked. We could only get luke warm water after trying various positions of the tap, and the shower was a hose type yet shower head hook fixture was broken so you have to hold it to shower. There was an after-thought pipe leading from above the sealing to the floor, assumably it empties whatever onto the floor from time to time, although we didn't see anything during our stay.
If you need internet access, the only wifi is near the lift on the floor, so you need to sit down at the lift with your computer to get access, otherwise the lobby was a better option. Perhaps one of rooms next to the lift were better if that's important to you.
The breakfast was surprisingly good. Mainly Indo cuisine.
Bottom line, OK for one night, would look elsewhere if staying for any longer.
