The hotel was really old and smelly, the room was dark, smelly and we couldn't get the airco to work. The surroundings of the hotel and the hotel in itself were not what we expected. We checked in, looked around, went to a nearby restaurant and checked out. I can not honestly advise anyone to stay there for a holiday....

Formosa Hotel, Manado, located directly in the edge of manado bay. Might you get your room with bay view surely you will enjoy the views. At the night you will see how the sea is giving you all romantic views. Then in the morning you can enjoy side walking on the long bay with all beautiful sea-views. The hotel conditioned...

Before I escorted patient from Manado to Jakarta, we stayed at this hotel. I felt marvelous with it. Despite of its small capacity for customer to stay, I found that its location near shore and also had a good bedroom and good breakfast cuisine.

Menu for evening meals could be better but...

Went to Manado for the 1st time. No clue where to stay. Decided to give this hotel a try (3 stars hotel). Pretty basic. No swimming pool, rather small room, no bath tub. If you like local food, you'd find them surrounding the hotel. A bit far from the main mall of the city.

“Try to get a room with a sea view. Manado tua looks beautiful rising from the sea and there is often a lovely sunset. Good class rooms are still very reasonably priced.”
