4 star hotel
Far and away Ternate’s most luxurious option, and easily the finest hotel in Maluku, the Bela International has 195 immaculate, gently fashionable rooms in coffee-and-cream colours, all with balconies and massive sea...
It has rooms in both an older building and a much newer, brighter building on the same property. In the newer building you'll find fresh tiles, wood furnishings, TVs and new air-con units...
The entry is bright and cheery. The hallways are grubby, but most rooms seem clean enough, if dark. The waterfront location is a handy getaway with Halmahera boats nearby.
Vastly better than most equivalently priced competitors, Archie has English-speaking staff and rooms with dated charm, along with hot water, fancy crown mouldings, satellite TV, toilet paper, and minibar...
A decent budget choice. Oh, it's scruffy, but the rooms are sizeable with working air-con and hot water in the most expensive rooms.
Behind a stylish '50s-retro facade, rooms are decent and clean, if sterile, with low ceilings, flat-screen TVs and air-con...
A smart choice for good-value, pale-yellow rooms, set around a bright inner courtyard, with high ceilings, crown mouldings, air-con and decent baths. It has a scruffy side, but is very doable.
Tucked among the huddled tin-roof masses, this friendly garden hotel isn't great, but it is homey with bamboo and wood furnishings, two-tone paint jobs, and built-in desks.
Good value, clean cheapie facing Bastiong ferry port from behind a low wall. Clientele mostly male.
Four survivable rooms without fan or bathroom in a slightly grubby family home with lots of old Chinese porcelain.
It appears modern and comfortable at first, what with that rather splashy lobby decorated with orchids and tasteful wallpaper. Then you'll wander into a hallway with carpet as deplorable as the furniture...
Decent-value rooms with pastel walls, crown mouldings, new air-con units and a quaint neighbourhood location. It's reasonably clean, if not spotless.
After breaching the seemingly eroding gateway you'll enter a pleasantly surprising complex of rooms, with ornate crown mouldings brushed in Pepto-Bismal pink...
Bright, basic, tiled rooms with a desk, clean bathroom, new air-con units and warm management. Rooms are freshly painted and free of must or moisture. It's simply one of the best choices in the area at this price.
Lovingly imagined by a former tour guide and fluent English speaker, this sweet boutique is 7km from the city centre and next to the university in Gambesi village...
