Comfortable and Courteous”

Cleanliness, View from Room. Friendly and courteous staff, good breakfast, proxinity to shopping mal

The welcome by the staff at reception and the welcome drink provided the underpinning for a memorable stay at the Formosa. The ghotel appears a little aged in the bedroom but exterior redecoration is evident. However the room was spacious and comfortable and the bathroom clean and well provided for. The view of the sunset over the sea from the room was exquiste and meditative. The room had had smokers as revious tennants. There is no non smoking section in the restauarnt and smokers were present during breakfast However one has to accept the freedom to smoke laws in Indonesia. A new shopping mall was 10 minutes walk away.

Good Location, needs to be refurbished”

Location

Manado Indonesia, part of North Sulawesi, hotel is placed there and benefits from its location. We participated in a travel fair and due to late registration all of the better hotels were booked solid. Nevertheless, after changing hotel for the 3 time, we managed to book 3 rooms at Formosa hotel. 3 stars, nothing fancy, but friendly service and helpful.

Good small hotel”

Great wireless Internet in the room and lobby area

i did not know what to expect when i check into formosa hotel. i expected the worse. the hotel receptionist were friendly and helpful. they provided good information. i like the lobby as it was neat and tidy. i would rate this hotel as 2 star. the rooms were dated and needs a new refurbrishment. it was clean and large. the bathroom was functional though its time to change the shower head as it was worn out. there is no hot water at the sink. forget about the tv as the pictures were snowy and the it was still the traditional tv sets and not the lcd tvs. breakfast was acceptable and very indonesian. location of the hotel was good as it was near the seafood restaurants and along the water front. its about 5 minutes by taxi to the shopping area. good enough for 2 or 3 night stay

Lokasi strategis, pelayanan dan menu mengecewakan.”

Lokasi dekat pantai, dekat pusat perbelanjaan, dan akses mudah.

Kami rombongan menginap di hotel formosa untuk mengikuti simposium nasional akuntansi di FE Unsrat. hotel formosa yang dipilih karena dekat dengan lokasi kegiatan. Pemesanan lewat Agoda karena kami percaya bahwa rekomendasi dari agoda relatif baik. Dalam kenyataannya kami mendapati hal-hal yang kurang sesuai. perlengkapan kamar sangat standar kalau dihubungkan dengan kualifikasi hotel. variasi makan pagi lumayan baik, hanya petugas kurang kontrol sehingga sering beberapa jenis makanan sudah habis tetapi terlambat ditambah. satu hal yang tidak mengenakan ketika satu hari sebelum cek out sudah memesan breakfast disajikan dalam dus karena cek out jam 4 pagi, dan disanggupi oleh front office, ternyata pada saatnya tidak tersedia seperti yang dipesan.
