First thing to say is: this is the Pacific, so bear in mind that standards will be lower - much lower.
In most of the rest of the world, this hotel would be a 1* at very best, but this is Palau. The rooms themselves are adequate for a night or two. They are relatively clean by Palau standards but extremely basic. Think youth hostel from the sixties or seventies and you'll get an accurate picture.
Location is fine - 5 minute walk from Koror town centre and therefore a good base from which to explore Palau. Airport pick up is offered, but it isn't free. The staff are friendly, and willing to help with all queries.
Someone reading this will no doubt be put off, but if you are looking for a good deal, there probably aren't many better options in Palau. Being a small country, choices are limited to begin with. Add in the extortionate prices of what would be no more than 3 or 4* hotels elsewhere in the world and one is left with very few options. I'd therefore call my review more realistic than negative. I'd still stay there, but please remember not to expect much beyond a bed to sleep in.
