Griya Ringo Guest House - Sorong - Building
1
8.5 Excellent (154 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in Sorong, Griya Ringo Guest House is within a 5-minute drive of Vihara Buddha Jayanti and Masjid Raya Al Akbar. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. A roundtrip airport shuttle is complimentary (available 24 hours).
8.0 Excellent
Pros: I appreciated the free pick-up from the airport and the drop-off at the ferry port. The woman at the reception that checked me out, spoke English very well and was very nice.
Cons: I stayed here one night before and one night after my Raja Ampat tour. In the first room the bed was very hard. In the 2nd room it was alright. I found it uncomfortable that the male staff asked me for pictures all the time and once even got asked if he can change the shirt before taking the picture so that we can look like boyfriend and girlfriend... Baggage storage comes at an extra charge. Not many restaurants around and Sorong isn't the most comfortable place to walk as a female on her own.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Perfectly adequate, probably best hotel in town, but still very poor
Cons: Cockroaches in room, WiFi didn’t work, hot water was a trickle out of the shower. Asked front desk for service, they took a look and couldn’t help.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Well kept
Cons: Location
7.0 Good
Pros: Room was big and spacious. Clean and near Airport
Cons: Pool was small. Food service we went for lunch, more than 4 different waiters served us without knowing what they were doing. Gave us Menu, to order it took us more then 15minutes and we had to call them. Drinks never showed up, food showed up...had to tell them for drinks again. You tell them for cold water, they bring room temperature...etc. Food was not bad. Unfortunately service was not good at all. Went there for dinner that evening...service was a bit better. Pity they are not constant.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is NICE! Only nine dollars more than Marina Mamberamo and 90 times nicer! The included breakfast buffet was the best I've ever seen (and I've probably seen 100). Seriously spoiled for choice. A dozen hot local dishes, fresh fruit, sweet treats in addition to the standard offerings I normally see. I was sad I didn't have longer to keep eating! Thankfully, the buffet opened earlier than any other I've been to at 5am or else I would have missed it entirely. I'm vegetarian and felt like I had many choices. The only thing I noticed missing was a "made to order" egg station but that may have been available later, I don't know. Scrambled eggs were available and to my liking.
Cons: I can usually find something to say here but it was a very short stay and a very clean hotel. I didn't venture outside but it didn't look very interesting or walkable in the surrounding area... but I found that to be true of Sorong in general.
8.8 Excellent
Cons: WIFI is extremely slow
8.3 Excellent

Pros: The breakfast has a huge selection. The staff was helpful. The design of the room is chic.
Cons: The check in was difficult. The staff present was helpful but its understaff. Looks unprofessional how the painting in the room is not even, the toilet is in a weird place.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The bath.
Cons: This hotel falsely advertises. We chose the executive suite that was supposed to have mini bar,fireplace and sound proofing. It had none of these. In I fact it was one of the loudest hotel rooms we have ever stayed in. Latching fire doors open didn’t help. Our lunch order was mucked up. If you like your food drowned in tomato sauce and mayonnaise this is the place for you. Breakfast was very average. Is it so hard to replenish empty dishes or fruit platters. Below pic is Chefs Salad.
5.8 Okay
Pros: The location
Cons: The room size, the facility
4.5 Okay
Pros: Room size is spacious for superior class, wifi connection is stable

5.8 Okay
Pros: The bed was very comfortable. Room was clean. The breakfast was huge. I had a great massage from the hotelspa.
Cons: The rooms are very smelly (wet, moldy, toxic) and it‘s impossible to open the windows. The staff was friendly and offered a roomspray (very smelly too) and also to change the room after I didn’t accept the roomspray. Unfortunately it was the same in the new room. Also i could hear the ringing from 2 elevators (in every floor they stopped, not only mine) loud and clearly in my room, also it was not next to the elevator. It did not stop all night. So elevator rings about once every two minutes.... earplugs helped a little.

Cons: There was night construction work until 12am right above the bedroom, so it was impossible to sleep or relax beforehand. Had to ask twice at reception for the noise to stop. They were preparing a conference room for an event. There is nothing around the hotel in terms of restaurants.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is convenient to the airport and the rooms are exceptionally clean and air conditioned. Although a tad more expensive than other Sorong hotels, the prices aren't outrageous, and for the comfort and security, the price tag is worth it....especially after 3 weeks in raja ampat homestays.
Cons: The price of beers was a tad higher than expected
6.3 Good
Pros: Good location on walking distance from airport. Food in the restaurant was really good and staff there helpful.
Cons: Staff in the reception seems to be really bored in their work, they were never smiling or greeting even you did. Picked this one before my liveaboard because it had a pool. Didn’t use the pool once; no sunbeds or anything to chill next to pool, just hard wooden chairs. Apparently they don’t want western people to hang there sunbathing. Lots of locals swimming in their clothes and screaming and running kids. Odd smell from bathroom as many has mentioned before as well.
7.5 Good
Pros: A lot of choices for breakfast. Comparably cheaper beer. Room with high ceiling. The hotel has a swimming pool.
Cons: The hotel design is a little bit weird. Hot water is not warm enough for me for shower. It's located far from the main road but somehow in the midnight I can still hear the motorcycles making loud noise.
7.5 Good
Pros: Location near airport
Cons: Service is a bit slow at the restaulrant
5.5 Okay
Pros: The restaurant is good.

7.5 Good
Pros: the starting time for the breakfast 06 AM is a very good time that allow us to take the morning flight with our estomac full. We had an excellent diner , the food was tasty , fresh and of course enough for hungry people .
Cons: the feet of the chair must be protected to avoid to make noise .

Pros: Our second stay at this property, both times prior to flying out of Sorong. Convenient location near the airport. Friendly staff at reception and in the restaurant. Smallish rooms, but clean, comfortable bed, hot shower - what more do you need for a night?

8.3 Excellent
Pros: It's not around anything touristy, but 5 minute walk to the mall and 100,000 IDR set rate taxi from the airport. Clean, simple, and one of the best hotels in Sorong. You're probably in Sorong because you're going on an adventure, and this is a nice place to spend the night before leaving. In room massage was nice.

7.5 Good

Cleanliness was maintained well in all area. The breakfast served well even though there are not many variety, but, enough for us.
Cons: On our last night we experience 3 times electricity switching that cause us worried. The fruit for breakfast may be can be improve. Also combination of breakfast should be more creatives. Stay for one night no problems, but, if guest stay for 3 nights like us, then you will feel bored with the breakfast.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Decent breakfast buffet for this price point in Sorong, liked the egg station. Room and bathroom were clean. Shower was nice and hot with good water pressure.

Featured amenities include a 24-hour business center, limo/town car service, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free valet parking is available onsite.
7.5 Good
Pros: The hotel is located on a hill which gives a view on Sorong. It is close to the "clubs" so for the night life, it helps. The hotel is close to the harbor for the liveaboard. Even though, Sorong city is not really big.
Cons: I was not a big fan of the breakfast. The food was not exceptionnal if compared to the fancinest of the hotel and the place I had stayed for 3 nights before (which was much cheaper and much less comfortable on weigeo).
5.5 Okay
Cons: Beware the cheaper rooms have no windows. Staff were a bit all over the place
7.0 Good
Pros: I was allowed to checkin very early. The room, though small, was quiet and overlooked the bay. Hot water was plentiful. There is a restaurant on site though much of what the menu contained was not available.
Cons: The receptionist was terse at check-in. Rooms are small and the restaurant open air so wear repellent. Service is indifferent. Nowhere to walk around the hotel and well away from shops.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Very clean comfortable room. Loved the breakfast and the rooftop bar/restaurant.
Cons: I would not typically pay this much for a night stay while traveling in Indonesia but after being on a boat for a week, it was a nice treat.
5.0 Okay
Cons: The bed linen didn’t smell fresh at all. In fact, particularly the pillows, they had a pungent smell, as if they had not been washed for a while. Also found too much hair (not mine) in the bed. I don’t know if this is a problem with the laundering facilities or something else.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: great breakfast, roof top bar with a place to have a cold beer. nice staff
Cons: room nicely done but on the small size, no windows so the air quality was difficult to maintain. pillows uncomfortable. The walls are not thick so outside sound is a problem especially if you want to watch tv.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: This was a relaxing, air conditioned Western-style hotel where we stayed the night before we caught the ferry to Raja Ampat. It is closer to downtown than airport hotels but not in downtown (which is walking distance) on a hill. Attractive property but not much in the way of facilities.
Cons: The sound level of the music in the top floor restaurant was excruciating on Halloween eve when we were there and the noise permeated the rest of the hotel. It might have been a special event but I recommend you ask for a room away from the stairwells. Luckily they let us eat in the much quieter lounge where we could hear the frogs croak in the night. The taxi the hotel arranged for us to the ferry seemed expensive.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The staff was excellent and It was an amazing value for the money!
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: nothing
Cons: Toilets not clean, room too small, breakfast below average, room too hot, air condition hardly running, no WiFi available
6.8 Good
Pros: Breakfast was good, room was nice, ..... hotel was clean and upstairs bar was good view

5.8 Okay
Cons: The hotel is far from city center. We were the only guests at the entire hotel, however local people were coming in the evening for dinner, as it was a good place to have a gathering dinner. The room is quiet, but lacking of table (on where you put your stuffs), lacking of power points, no wardrobe (there was a beam for you to hang your clothes but it was designed way too high to reach, even for a tall foreigner), no fridge, and the mirror in the bathroom was too high, only a super tall foreigner could barely see their face on that mirror. Food is good and beer available, hot water is excellent. Staff need more training.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Room was clean and comfortable for our one night stay
Cons: We booked the hotel as it had a pool. They open the pool to non residents for a fee which made it crowded and full of children meaning we didn’t use it at all
7.0 Good
Pros: The property was in a beautiful location with a nice pool. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Bed was extremely confortable. Hotel was 20-30 mins from the airport and town and it was in a peaceful location.
Cons: Slightly difficult communicating with some of the staff as they did not speak English. There was no WiFi at the property which was unexpected.
4.5 Okay
Pros: Staff is very kind and friendly, beds are comfy, peaceful area.
Cons: The location is far from anything, and according to the staff there are no taxis either. A ride from the airport is 200k which is a lot, you can rent a taxi for an hour for 100k so 30 minutes would be 50k. Eating at the hotel is ok but not great, it is overpriced and very very slow service. They also did not have WiFi when I was there but said they usually have it. Rooms are alright, the photos make it look way nicer. Rooms are extremely dark and the aircon in my room didn’t work well at all. Beds are comfy though and shower if good. I don’t know where the beach access was, staff barely spoke English, I could see the beach but it didn’t look very visitable, but it was nice to be on the water. I would recommend staying in sorong over this, there are nicer places in the city center, it is too far and doesn’t have everything you would need to make being far work. They also charge you if you need to cancel which sucks - my plans changed out of my control and they still charged me even though I explained it to them that there was nothing I could do. For that reason I will not stay again sorry recommend others to stay there.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: very pleasant location. Resort seems locally owned/operated and eager to assist guests. Great local food!
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The pool was a decent size.
Cons: THERE IS NO BEACH. Very misleading name. Prices on booking.com were significantly higher than advertised at the hotel. Large numbers of day guests (local families of 10 - we counted the flip flops outside one bungalow) who were noisy and disruptive. Reception desk staff who speak no English and have little interest in trying to communicate. Room smelt of toxic wood waxing product. One restaurant with majority menu deep fried items only and partial English translation. Overall, highly disappointing. Go for somewhere else.
5.5 Okay
Pros: Nice enough food in the restaurant, good looking pool
Cons: Roof leaked onto the bed (and it rains a lot), No Wifi and which expensive hotel doesnt have Wifi these days? (yes it tells you on booking.com, but you dont always read the small print). Surly staff, and language difficulties. The only beach around is in the name of the hotel, far out of town, but no advantage in that, really expensive - but no evidence of why when you there.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Ocean and sunset view from restaurant
Cons: Bathroom bit small
4.3 Okay
Pros: Swimming pool and grounds are nice
Cons: Hotel was empty. We were the only guests staying. The staff seemed to be using the place as their own social club rather than doing anything useful. Groups of men were sitting by the pool with their own music speakers making me feel quite uncomfortable in my swimwear. They ran out of beer in the bar!! Couldn’t believe that Noone had thought to restock the bar with alcohol. Staff completely lack the knowledge or skill to be running this place. Receptionist was asked if she could arrange laundry. Not understanding the question she just started texting on her phone for a few minutes until we walked away. Level of English spoken is very poor. They don’t bring towels to you at the pool despite the number of staff around Breakfast is not a la carte - it is nasi goreng. Disappointing not to have any choice. Very poor value for money - they are trying to pitch themselves as higher end but have no idea what that entails Rooms have no storage, not even a shelf to put your toiletries in the shower. Only mirror in the room is way too high up.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Nature
Cons: Poor english speaking

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: I am a backpacker and will stay anywhere. This place didn't meet my low standards. There was mold all over the entire ceiling, the bathroom has no sink. The breakfast is just instant coffee and wonder bread.
Cons: See above
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: We found it very hard to find a reasonably-priced hotel in Sorong, so we settled with this one since we were a big group and looking last minute. It was available, not as expensive as some of the other hotels in Sorong (though we quickly found out why), and located on the main drag not far from the ferry port.
Cons: The hotel generally is quite creepy -- very big dusty old and empty. The rooms were absolutely disgusting; they literally sprayed them for cockroaches as they showed them to us. The bathrooms contained just a spigot and a small seatless toilet bowl that had to be flushed with a bucket. The bathroom floors were wet and moldy. No wifi, no restaurant. Staff don't speak English. We debated fleeing immediately to find another hotel, but opted instead to just spend as little time as possible in the hotel since we were only there one night and had early morning flights out.
6.8 Good
Pros: Location near to restaurant and supermarket
Cons: Hotel is old and in need of refurbishment
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very good air con, close to the airport. Staff were very friendly. Close to large supermarket.
