I loved it. Sadly when I was there the spa and beauty salon weren't open so I could not enjoy the hotel to it's full potential. Also the breakfast foods aren't varied. Most of the same things every morning. Other than that I absolutely loved the hotel! It was wonderful, the employees are very attentive, the rooms are spacey and... More

This hotel is well located in a safe area, near shopping, two mayor supermarkets and easy access to public transportation. The staff at the hotel is very helpful friendly and attentive. The breakfast buffet is excellent with a wide variety of choices and tasty. Stayed 4 nights on a suite at the 7th floor. There is some remodeling done at... More

Checkin process was slow: had to forward confirmation email. Other than that the room was spacious and the hotel was good value for the price. Breakfast was good and complimentary. Wifi was reliable. There is a supermarket and street markets close by but otherwise the area is a little quiet. There are taxis in front of the hotel- took 35... More

The hotel staff I encountered do not speak english and there was an overall sour feel to the entire place. It's sad to me that Howard Johnson would put their name on this. The security is definitely lacking and I was a little troubled by this especially at night. The hotel had many, many unregistered guests around because of graduation... More

My family (2 Adults, 2 Children) stayed at this hotel on August 4, 2014. The hotel was very clean, had a nice swimming pool, free parking, free Wi-Fi, and free breakfast. The hotel definitely showed its age though. We had made out reservation through Howard Johnson's website and the front desk couldn't find it. I had to forward my confirmation... More

This is a big modern business hotel with all the trappings. Massive rooms, huge beds, good if slightly noisy aircon, great service and a really generous and tasty breakfast, with good coffee. There is not much to eat in the surrounds without catching a taxi, but there are lots of stalls, and a walk around gives you a sense of... More

From the guy receiving you at the parking area, to reception, it was a total attention. I am not used to be treated this good in my home country. They were really kind, the attention was unique. The bellboys and the sweet receptionist were helpful. Just about the breakfast, they need to vary no just the chicken or the liver,... More

I had stayed here during Dec 2013 for 2 nights. The suite room was really very spacious. However, the in-room facilities are not well planned. You have to run around for your needs inside the room. Because, the room was big, it had a huge A/C. Unfortunately, it was making a lot of noise and caused headache. The bathrooms are... More
