We called ahead to arrange 2 nights accommodation for 3 adults and 2 children, including a transfer from the domestic airport. Our flight arrived 10 minutes early, we waited until 20 to 30 mins after the expected arrival time and still no pickup. The assistance desk called the hotel on our behalf and informed us the transfer would arrive in one hour, it was middle of the night and young kids getting cranky. We arranged an alternative transfer to the hotel and were quite surprised at the state of the building and staircase, could have used a scrub ten years ago. We were shown to our rooms, the first, large 2 balconies, air cond, freshly painted, beds shaped like bananas, a shower (no toilet, odd choice) and many mosquitoes. The second was smaller and in a similar state but with older peeling/crumbling paint. I found the rooms very noisy and slept poorly.
Next morning we skipped the included breakfast (our loss) in search of somewhere we felt more comfortable. Our stay was only overnight (half really) and we were not allowed to leave until we paid for a full night (no problem) plus %20 of the second day due to canceling our second night. We were advised we were fortunate to not have to pay for the airport transfer, which did not arrive.
This is a budget hotel and i wish i had have booked the Osiris Hotel earlier.
