Not a great place to stay and certainly we am not going back there ever again. Its not a hotel really. I would probably say its a upgraded backpacker's hostel. The rooms requires upgrade immediately. The building is old and I doubt there was any maintenance/refurbishment in there in past 20 years. One of the lifts was "out of service" the whole time (3 days) we were there. The other lift was often congested and packed and it really didn't help since we were located on the 10th floor.
We paid for an ocean view room. Ocean view....yeah right... may be there was ocean view in late 80s. With all the big blocks of apartments/hotels, you can hardly see any view of the ocean.
it may be a fabulous place for backpackers/ young people who are after cheap accommodation. But definitely its not a place to be if you are travelling with family.
