A lot of reviewers have been fazed by the hotel's location but I chose to stay there because of this. But it is an area I know well. There are three expat bars - Outsiders, Eddy's and Eldorado - within walking distance. There is a mall a few minutes walk to the south (left out of the hotel) which has... More

Short stay to catch an early flight. The area is pretty decent. Things I expect for budget hotels especially when it's short stay (less than 12 hours): accessibility to main area of interest (airport, for this case), cleanliness, convenience, and quiet atmosphere. I got all these from Europa so I'll give it a good shot. Things I like: surprisingly, it... More

Dogs barking and howling ALL NIGHT, including loud arguments in the middle of the night. The shower is a "gang" type shower, no door or curtain. The bathroom light switchplate came off in my hand and the bottom door vent was also ready to fall off. Free internet? I sure didn't have that amenity, and I actually didn't expect it... More

I booked a family room good for 4 people. The pictures online looked enticing but as I should have learned by now, pictures are deceiving. Room was not too bad but I expected a comforter, soft bed and fluffy pillows, which was not the case. Bed is quite high , I needed to tiptoe to get on it. Sheets barely... More

About 10 mins from the airport - at quiet times.... it took us 35 minutes to get there in the early afternoon traffic. It is on a busy road but set back which helps with the noise - inside the room the traffic noise was minimal and was not a nuisance. I had a balcony room on the top floor.... More

Comforatble and bed and overall room was good.Good for the price compared to many other hotels in the area. The street is a bit noisy outside and the afternoon sun was brutal on the balcony door and window. Not... More

The room was fantastic and I would have expected it to be more expensive - it was a no smoking room but every room has a balcony on which smoking is allowed so no problem there. The staff are helpful and friendly and ready to share a light hearted moment. The level of cleanliness was very good and the decor... More

I am a local (Filipino) guest but I am extremely dismayed with this place!! I wonder why this called passed the category of "hotel" when this is even lower class that Motel, Inns and Hostel? No telephone (PABX system) in the room. No elevator (it's like see dorm). Located in the middle of nowhere. Staffs wearing old slippers and cropped... More
