This is not a hotel! The name is tremendously misleading. It's a glorified MOTEL or BACKPACKER-style accommodation, and for the horrific price of $130 a night I discovered that I would need to pay $5 for 30 minutes or $20 for 3 hours of Internet usage, $6 for a locker to store my luggage in on the day of departure, that there was no hairdryer or soap/conditioner supplied for guests, that the bed in our room wasn't even made up by housekeeping (upon arrival we discovered a pile of linen waiting for us on the bed), that the bathroom is INSIDE THE ROOM and the only privacy we had after showering was provided by a flimsy old curtain, and that the whole place was quite dirty, smelly (in the halls), and unkept. If you get an appropriate rate, this "hotel" might make an okay choice, however overall for the price it's generally advertised at we felt ripped off. The location is unquestionably excellent, however there are numerous better choices available for lower prices. We thought the Ibis chain of hotels would mean quality control of this hotel - apparently not! Any rubbish can assume the name and mislead guests into thinking they're making a reservation at a place of MARGINAL quality.
