Can’t complain about the level of service we received. Room service was great in supplying us with extra bottled water and milk. Loved the swimming pool. The cost of breakfast was expensive but then so are most places to eat.
The biggie problem is that this hotel is far from the downtown area. There is a local bus service, that is really cheap, but depending on traffic it can take up to one hour to reach the central bus station. Try it at least once so as to see the sights. Carefully check what bus number you will need.
Taxis are the best option (see if you can see anyone around waiting so you can share the cost of the travel) and are not so expensive, but it all adds up. Make sure the cab is running on the taxi meter not a set price. Many taxis have LPG gas cylinders in the back of their cars, thus making the boot space very small. If you have a few suitcases you have to check first to see if they have room enough.
Despite what the travel information booth will tell you at the airport, city buses do run regularly from the main airport into town. However, get up early and be on time to take advantage of the hotel’s free shuttle service.
The city maps that us tourists pick up are not very detailed in showing all the various side streets and maps have very microscopic print. Best to print out a much more detailed map from the net so you can pin point the exact location of the hotel and other landmarks.
