This is a cheap hotel for the facilities it provides, although its location is not great. In any case, you only get the basic package, with a lot of issues which can be very much improved. The following are just some examples:
- Internet is not free, and in fact, is fairly expensive (20 dhm per hour). I tried the cable connection at the room, and it is also quite slow, specially on the uploads (e.g sending e-mails with attachments)
- Breakfast, although complementary, is very basic
- Room could be cleaner, specially furniture and corners of the bathroom
- No amenities by default, although you can ask for them
- Service isn't great: they lost a fax, took dirty towels but didn't give new ones, took forever to get an iron, door card keeps on needing to be re-coded or the door won't open, etc
- We warned about getting a taxi from the front desk: they provide a hotel car without a counter and ask you a certain amount at the end of the ride, which is 10-20% more expensive that a regular taxi.
So, summarizing, if you need a cheap accommodation around this area, come here, but don't expect much.
