The room was clean but we had no windows, it looked like it was last refurbished in the 1970s and it was quite small. I still recommend it though because it was priced accordingly and I believe the most important quality is cleanliness. The staff were friendly and the location is PERFECT! I think I remember a water cooler to... More

This place is a dive. We stayed here on the strength of the other tripadvisor reviews which was a mistake. Eaten alive by Mosquitos during the night and also had to ask the staff to remove a gigantic cockroach from a light shade. I was expecting a small, basic room but wasn't expecting it to be so dingy.

My boyfriend and I stayed here 3 nights in mid May. The location, a very short walk to both the Jagalchi Market and the BIFF Square is unbeatable for the price. It is pretty quiet for being in such a busy area. They have free wifi that works well and our room had a tv and AC ( we didn't... More

Its located very closed to main sightseeing spots. We booked there because of cheap roomrate. If you are ok with small room, minimum service, then this is the best place for you. There was no bathtowel (only large face towel is provided), and I felt that the room was a wet and a bit dirty.
