Full disclosure here: I did not actually stay at this hotel. I booked a night here, and when I arrived by taxi, no one could even tell me where to go to check in. There was a guard at the gate who made a phone call, and then told be to walk down this dirt road, make a few turn, and then I'd be there. Well, I started walking, and after about 150 yards and seeing nothing but industrial looking business, I dragged my luggage back down the dirt road, in the blazing heat. This was not how I intended to spend my vacation.
In all fairness to the hotel, they did send a car to drive me, but by then I was already convinced that this was not the kind of place I wanted to stay. I called my cab back (thankfully I had been smart enough to get him number) and had him take me back to the welcoming arms of the Hilton.
