Stayed for one night in transit.The hotel is located in a busy, crowded, run down area with dingy buildings. The area seems never to sleep at all, it is noisy throughout the night. Reception was "cool" to put it mildly. Had an ok dinner.
Mosquitoes made sleep impossible. Hotel offered mosquito net but couldn't use it because of the dust.
Bathroom was a tad below acceptable.
Fact that I had an early flight and had to physically try and hunt receptionist down foreclose to 30minutes to open the steel screen and exit door added onto my irritation.
Only advantage is it is cheap and not too far from airport. I would however try and get a better bargain elsewhere given an opportunity
