During november 2012 during a business trip we decided to stay at the Hotel Marvi due to location.
First off – Marvi is an independent hotel that does not follow a Radison/Mariot/Best westen std. This means that there are no facilities common to these chains. This is ok, it was business only, so we basically needed a place to sleep.
First off, the staff is very very nice and forthcoming. Good English skills, very polite. Could not ask for anything more on that account.
WiFi is good as well.
Now the less-good part.
The room itself was clean, but smells like chlorine. The beds are incredibly hard to sleep on, and the only 0.8x1 m window goes to a window shaft 3x3 meters wide. So in effect, there is no window.
The breakfast buffet was really bad. Bad tasting coffee, no real selection: 1 type of pre-packaged cake, fruit salad in plastic boxes, VERY dry biscuits and jam. That’s it.
This hotel is basically a bed with a bathroom – nothing more. And a very bad bed. Specially as the AC did not work in our room.
Looking at pricing there are better hotels in same area.
