Unbelieveable expensive for this dirty semi luxury hotel, we had dirty smelly rooms with lose sanitary fittings. In the morning i discovered a centerpeed on my pillow, and a centerpeed in the sink. The whole night you are kept awake by a heavy repeating motor sound (aircon from the fifties??) We could not sleep at all and wished i was...

If you want to go to Raja Ampat, this is one hotel that could be considered, a good alternative other than Swiss-Belhotel. Returning from Raja Ampat, there is the possibility of your flight schedule is not in line with your arrival from Raja Ampat. So you need to stay one day in Sorong, to then continue to fly to other...

As other people - only used it for 1 night as a transit location from Raja Ampat. It might feel like heaven after a week in bamboo hut, sleeping in a real bed, but otherwise it's average, the breakfast was a disappointment.

The staff here clearly doesn't care about hospitality and the cafe is very overpriced for the small portions. Our airport shuttle provided by hotel was late because the desk guy didn't call it, even though we reserved in advance. But the room was fine and the breakfast was good and the wifi worked, so these factors redeem the rude and...

Location just in front of airport.....can not expect anything, the room and the facilities only for transit one. They have travel agent to arrange your Raja Ampat trip. Good location if you wait for morning flight.

We stayed 1 night here on our way back from Raja Ampat (our flights out of Sorong were the next day). This place was like a dream compared to the 'rough' style of the homestay on Raja Ampat. They greeted us with fresh glasses of Tang when we arrived - nice touch. They have laundry service in the hotel- which...

We got stuck in Sorong overnight due to our outbound flight being cancelled. Fortunately the airline put us (and other stranded passengers) up in the JE Meridien (no relation to Le Meridien, I'm told). I didn't realize until afterwards that the room we were in was the JEM Suite, one of the best rooms you can get. Based on my...

(+) It is located near by Edward Osok Airport with walking distance. The room is spacious. (-) dust and sand is everywhere, the service is very very slow, the staff can not maintain proper Indonesia with no English at all. Price is not worth it. No special view as well. Not recommended.

“If you get claustrophobic and disoriented without a window, make sure you get a room on the second floor. Check bedding before you take the room too.”
