Other than not picking me up at the airport which had been previously arranged and verified a few days before travel, the stay was pleasant, the staff was helpful including giving us a map for an impromptu walking tour we decided to take.

The hotel room amenities and facilities were good without a human touch. Hotel staff mostly the expatriates from India and Bangladesh were not proactive and friendly except one Indian guy who had the courtesy to exchange few words. Good to stay in the night to have a good night sleep.

My husband and I stayed here for one night last month. After reading some of the reviews here, we began feeling a bit apprehensive about our hotel choice, but as it turned out there was no need to worry; we were pleasantly surprised by how helpful the staff were and how large, clean and comfortable the rooms were. It turned... More

Althought the staff were friendly and helpful, I really cannot recommend this hotel for the following reasons: 1) Our airport pick-up did not materialise. We waited 20 minutes and then made our own way to the hotel at our expense, although we had paid Agoda for a transfer. 2) Breakfast was a sad affair served up on a ledge overlooking... More

For th price you pay, you get your money's worth. Very affordable yet very good, I found the rooms were quite clean & had nothing to complain. Had WiFi in the lobby as well. The place was very quite with hardly any disturbance. There were a few good restaurants close to this place which had good food. King's Corner comes... More

This is very small hotel, but it's just fine for short modest stay. Complimentary airport transfer works, I was fetched from airport 20 mins after call to hotel (flight was hours late). There is no restaurant, but they make simple breakfast. In room the bed takes most of the space, and the electricity sockets might work or not. There is... More
