This hotel takes some finding, that's for sure! Luckily, we had a taxi driver who was willing to indulge us. Although the hotel is new, it seemed to already be in a bit of disrepair. Many of the staff are still being trained it seems too.
Our room had a comfortable bed, a decent television and good air circulation, however, whenever we showered, the water would leak out of the bathroom and end up pooling under our bed, which made for a very humid situation. We were also puzzled by the lack of fan or air conditioner. Staying here in the summer might be an issue! Another oddity was the fact our room was bereft of a phone, so any time we needed someone, we had to walk down to reception ourselves.
The main benefits to staying here are the location, a reasonably safe area though we were still warned not to walk outside by ourselves, especially at night, and the food. The French restaurant attached to the hotel serves a lovely breakfast, but you will have to request what you want since there is no fixed menu. The restaurant will also deliver to your room, which can be tricky since there is no phone to call down with!
