The staff went out of their way to ensure I enjoyed my stay. Great value for money, good air con and wifi plus cable tv. Yummy breakfast and close to everything. Very clean and secure. All the staff spoke excellent English and gave me lots of valuable tips about what to see and where to go.

It's possible to buy nice tours whit the staff and get nice prices. If possible, try to book a room from the first floor, the stairs can... More

The hotel is very well located. very close to local restaurant and nightlife, yet separated from the noise and the crowd. However the great feature of this hotel was the attention of the staff, it seems they were competing among them to see who were the most friendly and polite to the guess of the hotel. They organised transportation for... More

Similar to plenty of other hotels in the area, no lift which was a chore, We were on the 5th floor in a room that according to the signs shouldn't exist... Think a spare space had been used! Very dated and poor shower but for the money and the location it suited us for a couple of nights, beware of... More

The location was not bad when I saw it in internet. However, when I arrived I couldn't believe where it was. Very small and scary alley, with people sleeping on the street. Also, my bed had insects and I got a lot of insects' bites. I left the hotel with a lot of problems because the manager wanted me to... More

*** Stayed April 2013 not 2014. You have to have the complete address to show your cab driver to get to this hotel. Located in an alleyway at the back of the main street, where the alleyway's one end is the entrance and the other one a dead-end you have to pass between 2 buildings if your taxi driver dropped...

A little bit of a tricky place to find as it's in a small alley way (the easiest way is if you're coming from the city center along the park, it's just after Burger King!). There are no elevator, the breakfast is pretty basic and the bathroom smelt but the staff is friendly. Note : unless you have US cash,... More
