Plenty of baby cockraoches in and around the showher was discusting and the smell of the hotel reminded me of an old hospital. The location was not bad, it was close to long street and central to all other activities.

Very good location, right in the center of the city close to shopping places and monuments. Easy to organize day trips to other location in the Peninsula. Rooms are clean, beds are super comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good as well. Perhaps the only improvement to be made would be to have free unlimited internet.

Not satisfactory my main concern is the running of insects in room air conditioning was not working well lastly the cleaners you must pay more attention to them as well. The breakfast was good although there is room for improvement thanks

Very nice hotel located in a nice area. Very friendly and helpful staff. Always a positive approach to their customers. It is certainly value for money. It is a 3 star hotel but the staff is giving a 4 star service.

Good location and within walking distance to parks and markets. Value for money. Also friendly staff. However cleanliness needs to be improved as there are cockroaches in the room. Also, the hotel needs to inform the guests that some rooms only have bath and some other rooms only have shower.

I asked for another room and I would have payed more for a better room but was told that they were booked out. The staff was very friendly! The cleaning staff forgot the toilet paper and the toilet brush was missing. It rained through the roof and into the wardrobe. The staff wanted to change the room, but for only... More
