Lack of maintenance for a hotel that has been operating for more than a decade: The elevator is only 1 available and not functioning properly, the air conditioner is dirty as you can feel the dust into the room. No wifi available as you are disconnected from the Internet. A very short option on tv channel. no hot water. And... More

I had 2 nights here whilst waiting for my flight to Sorong. For a hotel with 88 rooms it was largely deserted. For most of the day there wasn't a soul around, no one on reception, no one in the restaurant, no guests coming and going, just empty. The cockroaches in the bathroom were huge (Manila huge), there was a... More

My first impression about this hotel, was this hotel is very old. All the furniture in my room was very old (from 70's maybe), there is small tube TV with blurr picture, also a bathtub, with many stains on it. On my second day, there is a blackout in the hotel. Beside all worst thing, this hotel still have good... More

I usually more tolerable than most people are but this time around, I must agree with the 2 prior comments made on this by masgendut and hm_y. I have never seen such a bad condition of a hotel. From the moment we walked in, the a/c was not turned on in the lobby when it was super hot outside. Then... More

@masgendut: where to start, indeed. I absolutely loathed this hotel, with passion. Basically everything @masgendut said in previous review. When we heard the hotel was more than 30 years old, we immediately expected the worst. And we saw it coming as we drove in to the hotel. There was no hotel security in sight, suspicious people lounging on the couch,... More

The huge swimming pool well & truly makes up for the lack of modern facilities. Sahid Kawanua proudly displays a large portrait of, once upon a time guests, President Soeharto and Mrs Soeharto in the foyer. Well, that was a long time ago. The good things are; the huge, full sized, 3.6 mtr deep pool, the very accomodating staff, the... More

This hotel originally opened in 1972 and back then it must have been one of the grandest and most modern hotels on the island of Sulawesi. It has been renovated once since then but this hotel still has a decidedly 1970s look. This will turn some people off, but for us it was a positive. We recommend this place for... More
