“A decent hotel, considering the alternatives”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

The hotel was decent, considering the other alternatives available on the island. I arrived at the airport at 5am in the morning, and the huge benefit of this hotel is that it is located exactly adjacent to the airport, so no transportation is needed, because it is within a walking distance.

When I arrive at the lobby, despite the abnormal hour the staff was there to process check-in. They may be accustomed to have guests checked in at this hour because one major airline that serve this route (which I used) arrived at 5am in the morning.

Overall, the condition of the hotel is decent. The bed was OK, a bit too hard for me. The bed sheet has some stain on it, but overall the room is relatively clean and has no strange odor or some sort. The hotel sound insulation is not good, so whenever there is someone walking in the hallway you could hear them walking and talking, which can be annoying when you want to sleep.

The meal (breakfast) was OK, albeit limited options available, but it is available at 4am in the morning, so that is a plus point.

I would recommend this hotel to people who's planning to go to Biak, not because of its service and accommodations, but basically it is still the better hotel than the other alternatives available on Biak island.

Room Tip: ask for a room that has a balcony facing to the swimming pool / beach.

I've stayed at three hotels in Biak, and this is my favorite. A two-minute walk to the airport and a 20 minute walk to a few good grilled fish restaurants. The air conditioners don't rattle, the sheets are clean, and there is a dive operation on-site.

Get a room away from the parking lot and not in a high traffic hallway: the floors are wood, so the sound of all the wheely suitcases rattling by will really start to bother you.

We only had one night here and wanted the convenience of being near the airport and this place is a 5 minute walk away. Room was pretty nice and costs are reasonable both room rates and meals. We really liked the large pool to relax in after a full day bird watching. I have bird watching tips about Biak on my blog. http://www.milestothewild.com/biak-a-gentle-introduction-to-west-papua/ We would def stay here again if we return to Biak.

Aerohotel in Biak-West Papua is a very pleased hotel with a friendly staff and nice manager (Ms. nancy). They tread us well. The price is friendly and they have a very nice pool in front of the beach.

The room (superior and deluxe) has very great interior but, some of them have no great exterior view. I suggest you prever superior who get pool view or deluxe with beach view.

One minor of this hotel is about breakfast, the food is standard (standard means standard) but for lunch or dinner is great.

The beer is nice but maybe the price for red wine is rather expensive (more than one hundred bucks for australian wine).

It's nice to come back in this hotel. Actually I stay in this hotel once every two weeks.
:D

Room Tip: Deluxe room or superior with pool view.
