If you want to get a good service at the reception and have a decent sleep for at least 6 hours - avoid this hotel at all costs! First of all lets talk about the reception. The people are not too happy that you are checking into their hotel - I wonder why!!! You have to pay the entire stay's price upfront. Maybe its their strategy of making sure that their guests don't run away after seeing the room. As for the rooms - I cant even imagine how people can stay here. Certainly not for any decent couple or family! Maybe something close to a lousy bachelor pad. The beds constantly give you feedback when you toss and turn (trust me you WILL toss and turn being unable to sleep) and you might even feel like you're on a boat in choppy waters. Ok so how about the bathroom? DIRTY (sums up the toilet and the bathtub). As for the water from the shower - strong smell of metal which tells me that the pipes are old and rusted. The breakfast is so bad that I almost wanted to throw up mid morning. The housekeeping guys are terrible too. Shabbily dressed and bad behavior is their trademark. I had some bad experiences which I don't even want to explain in this public forum. I think I know what this hotel is probably famous for looking at the characters who checked in. There could be some shady places around the hotel too.
By the way, no internet in the room. There's wifi only in the lobby. But you need to find the "right spot" to get connected. The lobby is not air conditioned so make sure you're dressed to be in a sauna. You can even see the people at the front desk fanning themselves thanks to the stuffiness.
IF you want value for money and a good place to stay - check in to the hotel right opposite this. Its called goldberry suites and since some of my business associates were staying there I could personally look at a world of difference. I will NEVER EVER return back to Bellavista in my life.
