My wife and I have been staying at the Aston Manado for five weeks. My wife has already provided a review from her point of view, so I will concentrate on the issues that are the most significant to a businessperson.
To me, one of the most important considerations is the reliability of the internet. I had heard from colleagues that interruptions in internet service in Manado occur frequently. Indeed, during the day when I am visiting clients their internet often goes down. However, I have been very pleased with the wifi service at the Aston. It is much more dependable than other places in Manado and when interruptions occur, they are relatively brief. I use the internet for several hours every evening at the Aston and am always able to get my work done.
Although I travel with my laptop, I rely on the Business Centre at the hotel for printing services. The Aston Business Centre is located right beside the front desk. If the Business Centre is not open when you need it, the front desk staff will cheerfully open it for you. The equipment works well and I am always pleased with the quality of the printing.
A gym may not be imporant to everyone, but it is a major attraction for me. The gym at the Aston is better than any that I have seen at other hotels in Manado. The equipment is not fancy, but it is in good repair. There are enough machines that I rarely have to wait.
I have been very pleased with the Aston administration. Before we selected our hotel for our visit to Manado, we contacted several of the options that looked the most appealing. Ms. Menly, at the Aston, always responded quickly to our questions and provided complete answers. When we arrived, we received everything that we had been promised, and more. We pay our bill weekly and the invoice is always accurate and easy to underestand.
When you have an extended stay at a hotel, you can become bored with the food. There is such a wide selection at the Aston, that my problem is not becoming bored, but being tempted to try too many of the options. It is a good thing that there is a gym!
The Aston is conveniently located in downtown Manado. It is within walking distance to most of the shopping and many restaurants.
The best aspect of the Aston is the staff. If you need a haircut, they will recommend a barber and even provide a driver to take you there. If you need a couple of pies for a Thanksgiving dinner, the kitchen staff will bake them for you. Whatever you want or need, the Aston staff do their best to help you.
Special thanks to the GM, Mr, Bobby, and to Calvin, Front Desk manager, and to Amurudin, Executive Chef, and to all of their staff for making our stay so enjoyable. We recommend the Aston highly and will definitely stay here on our next visit to Manado.
