Global Towers is going to have to work hard to keep its customers in the future. Many interesting hotels are being built in the area. The Apartment was a good size with lovely views BUT it was not clean enough. The toilets seats were dirty and the kitchen not up to standard. Someone needs to take responsibility for checking the...

The hotel looks impressive from far and less so as you get nearer, especially inside. The room initially allotted to us for triple occupancy was terribly small and the third bed happened to be two mattresses stacked on top of the other! The travel agents and the hotel reached some consensus and upgraded us to a suite which was much... More

Don't expect anything good in this hotel ever. Everything is bad starting from the check-in until the check-out. The staff work as they are the guests. First, my reservation through Hotels.com was a 3 bedrooms and when I arrived they said it is only a double room & they forced me to pay more to get the three bedrooms. Then,... More

We had a room facing the ocean so the view was good. Unfortunately the view also included the railway line and the local rail station, and the associated noise of trains and train whistles began at 5am. The room was adequate but the floors could have been cleaner (we complained but nothing was done). Breakfast was good and included in... More

I have been a regular to Global Towers for more than half a decade. The service quality can vary from decent to mundane. The recent addition of Wi fi has made it more contemporary. The location is one of the best and if you get rooms facing the sea then you are well set. The breakfast options are decent. I... More

The hotel location in good. The rooms facing the ocean gives a great view. The rooms are compact well maintained with great accessories. Though the structure is old but well maintained. The food is good with large variety. Little bit expensive.
