On a lot of levels Hotel Renew does not disappoint. The staff is very polite and helpful, the decor is very clean and modern and the rooms are nice and well designed. The location is perfect; so close to the beach and right beside a major bus-stop area... to say nothing of the close proximity to the Zoo and other delights. The lounge is cute and they pour a decent cocktail and the room they let you stay in after you have checked out while waiting for your flight is a godsend. However, despite what you will read here on Tripadvisor it isn't perfect. Noise comes into the rooms very easily, either from other rooms or from the street. Neither the television nor the AC worked entirely properly during my whole stay but as I could "figure it out" I never complained. There is also a bit of wear and tear to be found in the form of water damage, cracks in the wall and whatnot. Nothing to make you rethink your stay but definately enough so that you do notice it. I would definately recommend this hotel, of course I would, but at the same time it wasn't quite what I was lead to believe.
