In May 2016 It is my first time travel to Kendari –Southeast Sulawesi. I took a budget airline carrier Lion Air from Hassundin International Airport in Makassar after four and a half hour flight form Sentani Airport Jayapura. As first time I book a hotel by my self online, and I found various budget hotels. I then took three nights at Grand Clarion Hotel at Jalan Edi Sabari No. 89 Kendari Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia, about 29 kilometres from Haluoleo Airport Kendari. Here is my review
The hotel located about 29 kilometers from Airport which is took about 30 minutes by taxi or rent car which can be hired from airport terminal. No worry of you’ll get stuck on the road as the traffic is going smoothly, no traffic congestion that you should worry about. The hotel is also close to beach with see view, and you need few minutes to reach the city center by taxi. The hotel also can be reach by online booking from their website at Grand Clarion Hotel Kendari. Room can be ordered online and paid by credit card and debit card.
Staff Supports Service
From my first day to last day the staffs are very kind, helpful and full of smile. They ‘re always care of any guest who needs their help. The Internet access provided is a high speed access. Unfortunately it is sometime off and you will lose internet connection which is really annoying. Food and beverages are excellent and vary.TV set provides 30 local and International TV channel, yet some are channels are not clear to watch. Another great thing is that the hotel also provides local traditional food that can be grabbed during breakfast, lunch and dinner session. The swimming pool in on the second floor, and it is quite nice pool to enjoy
Secure and Convenience
I would say the hotel is secure and you can left your valuable things in electronic secure box available. However the room does not equipped with noise block, so the noise of people from other rooms, next to you are very disturb your convenience.The bathroom’s drainage work well but less tilt so the bathroom always flooded when use it
