Stayed here just one night before flying out. The staff is very helpful and friendly and security is sound here. My experience with the restaurant was mixed. Breakfast had painfully slow service and the food not very good/poor variety. However, lunch was excellent having ordered Indian food.
The room was large and clean...except for the bathroom. The bathroom was pretty disgusting. There was black mold on the walls near the ceiling and the shower was very poorly designed with the shower set up causing water to leak all over the bathroom floor. But, for one night, and given the value/safety/comfort of the rest of the room, I was able to live with that. The room has great amenities - kitchenette, coffee service, satellite TV, free wifi (albeit *very* slow), frigde, and A/C. The beds, albeit clean, were a bit too firm for my liking. The location was interesting with some good restaurants nearby. There were also some interesting Hindu temples within walking distance as well. It was safe to walk around the area.
