It has been nearly a couple of years since I wrote about the above hotel and my last stay in 2014 does have some minor changes. One important and worthwhile one is the provision of "FREE Wi Fi" to every guest room. This in my opinion is good value when compared with some hotels and apartments where there is charge... More

Good location but stains everywhere in the room, unpleasant experience. Toilet is dirty and didn't even have towels. My sister room's bed is uneven and very uncomfortable, there is a cigarettes burn hole on the bedsheets.

The only issue would be the quality of... More
