I initially wanted to stay six days at PrideInn on Raphta Road but only managed to stay three days before I had to find an alternative. Supposedly I was given their best suite but some things really didn't work out for me. Because I travel for business reliable Internet is very important. The whole three days I was there I couldn't get a proper connection. The wireless connection was simply not good enough to reach the suite. Secondly there was so much noise from the hotel staff around my suite from 6.30am till 11pm. When power would go off a generator located next to my room went off in full effect. For two days the generator was on till 2am in the morning making it impossible to sleep. Lastly the service in the restaurant and at breakfast was so bad that one felt like a bother asking for basic things. At one point I had dinner and the waitress threw the receipt on the table after the main meal. I asked if I could have dessert and the answer was "eh, you want dessert??" I decided not to on that occasion.
Basically it felt like a place made for the staff rather than the guests. I will not go back to the hotel when I return.
