    Location was easy to find, located in the center of manado. Arround 10min to reach manado boulevard by car. We were welcomed by a staff (guy) that was very friendly and show good respect to guests. Room was spacious, clean and cozy, with creative design filling the wall. Bed was comfy. Bathroom was a bit small but it did their purpose. Hot water and water pressure worked well. TV flat with international program are provided. Air con was cold and worked well. Drinking water are provided outside room in a dispenser with choices of cold and hot water, unlimited! Breakfast were limited of choices, the fried rice is tasty though imo. But yeah its just additional comparing to other hotel (with same prices) wont even give a free breakfast. Really satisfied and recommend you to try. Value for money.

    hard to imagine there is a better place in town for this price. in fact, it was probably the best quality room for the price (200k) in my 4 weeks in sulawesi. super clean, good bed, everything felt new or recently painted, great hot water shower, very helpful staff, artistic hotel and room design, hot & cold (a rarity) drinking water on every floor, and even a rooftop hangout area. i did miss complementary coffee which could be found in some other places, but with the hot water on my floor, i could easily make my own.

    Stop off for a night”

    We had to stop for one night on the way to the Sitaro islands, this place was perfect. Rooms were comfortable, showers warm, breakfast was ok but was so happy to see that they provide free water refills from a cooler rather than providing plastic bottles. They will call go-jek for you to get to where you need to be, really close to the harbour.
