Use grab app

If you need to get around Manado, have your hotel arrange a grab for you. This way you know the price and it’s usually not overpriced. This app is like Lyft or Uber.

Taxi cost

Taxi to the airport arranged by hotel cost 85,000 IDR. Only a 20 min ride.

Final Thoughts

You can do worse for such a price. It’s not as close to the airport as some hotels but it gives you a chance to see more of Manado.

Right across the street, you can have your laundry cleaned. They have actual washers and dryers.

It’s well worth the price.
