We stayed here for 5 nights on a visa run, it's all you need if your on a low budget! The location is central & within walking distance of restaurants and bars. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful!
Location is Very very close to the party strip- which had its disadvantages... Every night all we heard was 'boom boom boom' from the club music below till 3am in the morning!! & we were on floor 14!
The rooms and corridors stunk of cigarette smoke...the room was spacious, we were given a twin room, they were cleaned everyday, but the beds & pillows were very uncomfortable & hard! Not the best sleep I've had in my life!!! Breakfast was not for westerns. I skipped breakfast everyday as there was nothing suitable to eat- even the cereal was limited! & there was no fresh fruit at all!! & when I asked for watermelon -they had ran out.
We did have room service which was quick & easy! & the room service menu was good!!
This hotel is ideal for anyone who is on a low budget & want to be close to nightlife
