Stayed here to be close to a meeting i came for at the Lacio and needed to conserve funds. Other colleagues where staying here, so i stayed. I didn't get to spend a lot of time at the hotel, but at first i was worried about the security - as its in the center of town and has a disco/club on the first floor, with several meetings going on and some shops at the first level. The lobby is always busy, but the staff where very friendly and there is a lady security sitting by the elevator on every floor. The rooms where okay and the cleaners had burst into my room - knocked and opened - as i was dressing up. I didn't mind having people always around though, preferred it to being in a quiet and isolated place.
Hotel charges for internet which is very unreliable anyway.
Food was great.
Room has a safe and refridgerator
Room didn't get sprayed and had no mosquito nets and by the second day, i was worried about getting malaria from a mosquito bite.
Gave my clothes to housekeeping for ironing and was promised i would get it in 10 minutes - i left for a meeting leaving instruction to have it kept in my room. Had wanted to do my own ironing, but the hotel doesn't give irons. When i got back 7 hours later, i still hadn't gotten my clothes. On calling the frontdesk and housekeeping numbers severally, it took more than an hour to get back my clothes. When it came it came with a wrong bill saying the cothes where washed and then ironed. I insisted on their confirming what i had actually asked for, and eventually i got the correct bill.
Very easy to pick up taxis here
