The hotel was generally very good. Getting a taxi into the city was really quick (and even cheaper when one of the staff negotiated with the drivers before we went out) but it did make the area a little noisy at night (earplugs worked fine). The room was quite big (and the bed was definitely the biggest I’ve ever seen). The hotel also offered a good buffet breakfast and convenient complimentary ‘sandwich bar’ for dinner (not as great as breakfast, but still okay).
There were a number of available tours/activities that could be booked through reception and charged to the room account. We also had the option of ‘withdrawing’ money from the hotel (i.e. charging an amount to our rooms and getting it in cash) rather than using an ATM elsewhere, which was a great saver on bank fees! The only main difficulties were the fact that not many of the staff spoke English (the hotel doesn’t even have an English website), but otherwise everything was okay.
