For the pool and the location alone this hotel proves a winner. I found the staff very friendly and helpful, the room spacious and clean and the breafast more than adequate. The hotel is set in a great location (yes, down an alley. I didnt count the paces but no more than 30 I'd guess. Is that really an issue as some have suggested?) and the pool is not what you'd expect to find when you step out from the lobby. It really is an as oasis just as it has been described by so many others. A welcome reward at the end of long hot day trudging around the streets and sites.
People have complained about the lack of hot water and I must admit I had no hot water myself but it was pretty hot outside at the time so it wasnt a problem and unless you have your ac turned down to recreate Arctic conditions I dont see why it should be an issue... but thats just me. The room was sufferring a bit from the rigours of time and climate but I was in the tropics after all and in the tropics - particularly in a developing country - building maintenance is always an ongoing issue. It probably could have done with a tile re-grout and a lick of paint and there were painters in the staiwell so maybe they were working there way through the hotel, Having said that though it was spotlessly clean and I'm being really picky and probably a bit unfair there with those comments. I have paid alot more for alot less in the past.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.
