Accommodation in Manokwari

There are no real top range hotels of international standard in Manokwari, all the more reason to come before the Novotels and their clientele arrive. The fanciest hotel in town is the Swiss Belhotel, while the next best, but with the most beautiful location by far, is the Mansinam Beach Hotel. Other than these two, there is a wide choice of mid and lower range hotels, though none stand out as being exceptional in any way, and at any given time, a certain percentage of the promised facilities (water, airconditioning, TV, minibar, etc.) are likely to be broken down just grin and bear it. Prices are around 50% to 100% more than what you'd expect from similar standard hotels in Indonesia proper, but fluctuate frequently, and are negotiable.


Top Range Hotels (Rps 300,000 - 1,000,000)

Swiss Belhotel
Jl. Yos Sudarso 8, (0986) 212999,
The closest thing to an international standard hotel in Manokwari. Located in the middle of town, adjacent to the shopping mall. Swimming pool, business center, occasional wifi.

Mansinam Beach Hotel
Jl. Pasir Putih, (0986) 213585
A few kilometers northeast of town, in a village called Kwawi, beautifully situated on the waterfront facing Mansinam island. Watersports, billiards, karaoke, a good restaurant over the water, and occasional wifi. The cheaper rooms are clean and modern, but very small and with no view.


Mid Range Hotels (Rps 150,000 - 500,000)

Fajar Roon Hotel
Jl. Trikora, Wosi, (0986) 215942, 215943
A bit out of town, in Wosi, but distances are so small it doesn't really matter.

Billy Jaya Hotel
Jl. Merdeka 51, (0986) 215787
Recently renovated and expanded.

Hotel Mokwam
Jl. Merdeka 49, (0986) 211403

Metro Hotel Jl. Biak, (0986) 215975

Mangga Hotel
Jl. Bhayangkara 1, (0986) 211693
Some rooms face the harbour


Low Range Hotels (Rps 80,000 - 200,000)

Soribo Hotel
Jl Taman Ria, Wosi, (0986) 211759

Hotel Mulia
Jl. Yos Sudarso, near corner of Jl. Percetakan Negara, (0986) 211320

Hotel Maluku
Jl. Sudirman 52, (0986) 211948

Hotel Beringin
Jl. Sudirman, perhaps 200 meters south of the Maluku, (0986) 211909
Looks like the cheapest joint in town, but nobody was around to quote prices when I checked.
