“Central and comfortable”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

I stayed at the Gran Central Manado for 2 nights when travelling to and returning from the Lembeh Strait. The staff were helpful and efficient and could easily undrstand my poor attempt at bahasa Indonesia.
My room contained a very large bed and was well appointed with the usual mod cons - shower was very hot - good!!
Meals are available in the restaurant area , breakfast was a buffet and dinner was chosen from the menu. On the morning of my departure - I had to leave at 5.00 am - my breakfast was delivered to my room at 4.30 am - that's efficient.
The location of the hotel makes it easy to walk around the main streets of Manado or easy to hop on a Mikrolet and travel around.

Reviewed 18 January 2012

I stayed in this hotel for five nights to attend a trade show. It is a clean and well appointed three star hotel. The band on the second floor is excellent and they have a great repertoire. Raffles at the front desk was extremely helpful and accommodating. His English was better than the other staff including that of the front office manager.

The food in the restaurant is quite good and extremely inexpensive. Breakfast had a fair assortment of items, but I would say that it was just average. There could be more choices. The staff doesn't understand "over easy", so my eggs either arrived sunny side up or extremely overdone.

The only two negatives were that housekeeping forgot to put clean towels in our room three times, even though they had removed the dirty towels, plus the rooms do not have mini bars.
