It took me almost 7 hours to get to Jayapura and I was really looking forward to a nice warm bed. The road to the hotel was pleasant enough, with views and scenery reminicent of Australia and NZ than one would normally associate with Indonesia. The first view of the hotel looks inviting enough (although I must say than the corporate picture looks better) and the rooms are.......adequate. I stayed for 1 night on business and thus I was not too concerned at things I would have if this was a vacation, for a longer stay, and with family. Bed was ok. Decor was functional if boring. Internet is expensive and even so only at the restaurant do you get WiFi. Ask for the sea view; otherwise the view of the street will be both noisy and boring. Breakfast spread was quite considerable in terms of quantity and choice but it was not my favourite.
Check-in staff were courteous and efficient. And if you want to catch a beautiful sunset, this is the place to be as it is at the bottom of a bay that faces West. Either watch it from your room, or from the restaurant downstairs.
If you are staying in Jayapura, I believe this is the better of the 2.
