I can say that the rating of the hotel itself is average more like poor. Food is not so good, beds are average. It would be good if the owner make renovation like painting the walls, refresh all the bed sheds and mattresses with new one, to get new towels, and to have shampoo and shower gel in the room.It...

This hotel is in need of major refurbishing! Cracked and messy scuffed walls all throughout the hotel. No elevator with a dark, narrow, and unventilated stairway. Bathroom towels were obviously overused, old & stained! No bath mats. Bathroom and room were not cleaned properly if it was cleaned at all! The pictures on travel sites were very deceiving!

The stay was okay, stable wifi, average food served, the room was comfortable. And the best part of my staying experience here is the staff! They have really nice, helpful and friendly staffs here. They greet you whenever they see you and I really feel at home.

I would highly recommend this hotel. It's easy to find, it's near from the jetties and main shops and the room is worth your money. They have free internet but it's not much reliable, I was staying in the 3rd floor and net was very slow. And they don't have elevators, get your legs ready for the long way up... More

I stayed three nights here. Hotel is conveniently located at the eastern end of the main drag right next to the artificial beach and not to far from the airport ferry jetty. I have read other reviews about this hotel stating that the bed linen was stained and staff rude. I didn't experience that. On the contrary, rooms were clean... More

I am really upset and suspect some dishonest evaluation from some tripadvisor members .Tripadvisor should quickly request removing of its stickers from the door of this shack. This hotel is unhealthy,unsanitary . Electricity and plumbery looks have been made by rookie handyman. Never see an hotel so dirty . Towels and bed sheets were grey. No protection between sheet and... More

Dont expect to much when staying here as its only overnight accomodation while you transfer to the islands. The rooms were average. Not bad but not great. They were clean enough to stay in. Service was ok, they carried our bags up the stairs and got us to the boat the next day to go out to the islands. The... More
