The room we got was huge, but the shower was very tiny (could barely stand straight in it with water on me, and I'm only 5'5!).
The staff was OK, but when we entered the room a soap had already been used and left there and we had no other bathroom products...not too impressive as a first impression of cleanliness!
Anyway, we had a great stay there. The immediate neighborhood is kind of boring, but there is a supermarket close by and it has an easy access to the city by bus (just in front). It is also very easy to get there by walk, if you are patient enough to do the 45 minutes walk, or if you are unluckily enough, like us, to miss the last bus and don't find a taxi!!
Easy access also from airport, take the city bus (search on google map how to get there) or taxi. The airport shuttle to downtown would make you do a long detour, as the hotel is halfway to the city from the airport.
I would recommend a hotel closer to the city if you are a tourist, but if you can get a deal on this one like us (around 55$ per night), its great to save money!
