Stayed two nights here through Agoda. Some of the staff in the cafe were rude and would not let us use the wifi despite me showing him our room number. Cigarettes were butted out on the floor and the whole hotel stunk of them including both the rooms we stayed in. I read the other reports before booking and believe...

This hotel has undergone renovations and it's a much nicer experience. Huge improvement. The room was large, the wifi good, the breakfast okay -- I wish they would add one or two more Western items to the buffet. Very good coffee, though. The staff are helpful. Across from the airport.

Compared to expensive Swiss Belhotel we really liked the Meridien. The staff was very friendly, the rooms totally OK and very clean, the Indonesian breakfast very good, and they drove us over to the airport for free. The staff was speaking good English (in Swiss Belhotel we only met one girl at the reception who you could talk to), the...

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...

“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.”
