“Fine for an overnight”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Pros: nice enough rooms, nice staff, easy access to a restaurant, a bar, and a super cute coffee shop.

Cons: They claimed to have wifi, but we could barely find a signal. Also, they required us to pay in cash, despite allegedly accepting credit cards. When we tried to pay each morning, they insisted the machine was broken, but honestly, I think that was untrue - they just wanted to avoid paying fees. As a result, we spent way more US cash than we had budgeted for.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The hotel is newly renovated, the rooms aand bathrooms are clean. the staff team is friendly and always ready to assist. there is need to improve on food preparation and presentation. the bar needs variety of wine. there is an on and off of power problem and the corridors are dark. there is need to consider introducing a one day entertainment eg. one man guitar or a jazz band to avoid guests going out in search of entertaiment. overall the hotel is average.

Room Tip: higher floors have less noise.

The hotel is new. the rooms are good and location in town but except that nothing.
1. The electricity in the passage was not there
2. the internet service was not available. although they gave me 25% discount for that but i needed internet
3. the shower either gives boiling water or cold water
4. the restaurant looked good & i just order milk + fruit. i just had fruit and left the restaurant as it took 20 mins for them to bring a glass of milk.
5. the telephone nos on the site are not in service

Room Tip: There are other cheaper hotels in town with same service
