We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while visiting family in Manado over Easter. The hotel is conveniently located in the city (in the same building as the hospital) and within walking distance of grocery stores, ATMs, restaurants, the big mega mall and gramedia book store. I had read some bad reviews on tripadvisor, so I only booked one night online in case we wanted to switch hotels. I was especially worried about smelly carpets (that I had read about), but our room and the hallways outside were all marble/tile with white walls. I was pleasantly surprised and relieved that the room was as good as it was. The bathroom décor was marble/stone and while the sink seemed unclean at first, we realized there was some cement bits stuck on the surface. There was plenty of hot water… plenty of water in general. We had a nice big view of the sea from our room. There was a nice view of the sea from the pool, which we checked out, but didn’t use as we didn’t have much time, and there was no shade. The breakfast buffet was amazing, with all sorts of delicious indo and manadonese dishes to sample (plus pastries breads etc). Wanted to eat dinner there too. The dining room staff could have done a better job at cleaning up tables after being used.
The hotel lobby was grand and open, and while not too modern in appearance, I noticed that guests/visitors seemed to appreciate the space (taking lots of pictures here, etc).
I found the hotel staff especially friendly and helpful, and they spoke English. They knew who I was and remembered me as I came and went. We were provided a take-away breakfast on our last morning when we had to catch an early flight. Without traffic the ride to the airport was around 20+ minutes.
While it was very hot and humid outside, we were so happy to be able to have our nice cool hotel room as a base while in town. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend this hotel for either a short or longer term stay.
