First things first, we checked in on the 12th Of August and we stayed for 5 nights. Our first thoughts were that the hotel would be amazing looking in perspective of the lobby's presentation. Completely wrong, nightclubs would roar on till 3am and would barely give us seconds of sleep, there wasn't one, not two, not three but FOUR nightclubs... More

The rooms are small, but ok. The staff are ok, but not too friendly. The bedding are clean and a bit fresh smelling. It's a few meters from shopping malls, local stores and restaurants. The streets in the area are a bit dark though. The rooms are not so sound proof, you could hear the tv in the other room.... More

I don't see how anyone ever had a good time here .The pool is nice true! However check in takes 30 min the room smelt very odd the shower obviously not made for westerners . Room service is rude and will hang up on you. Minibar doesn't work and bar necessities are missing .
