I think it´s fair to recognize this hotel for what it is: a budget option with a similar location to the big hotels but 1/3 of the price. I stayed here five nights after first staying at Le Pavillion. Obviously the comfort and the service is not comparable, but the location is about the same. My room (416) was fairly big. The hot water was lukewarm at its best, but it was not really a problem. The staff was helpful and friendly, especially Tahirah. The hotel was very well located opposite to a 24h convenient store and there were plenty of options for breakfast in the neighbourhood.
My only real complaints is that there were quite a few ants in my room, and that when I accidentally poured roothbeer on my cover, it was removed by housekeeping and not replaced, so I had to sleep in bedsheets only. The aircon was working, so it was a bit on the chilly side.
I think this is a buisness run by honest people trying to make an honest living, and I appreciate promoting local initiative rather than Hilton or Marriot.
