Since I arrived at the Uzu in the middle of a war (not my choice, but my taxi driver's), everything about it may be a little bit out of the ordinary and prices hiked up. For what it’s worth, I paid USD110 a night for a double-room but the Uzu isn’t worth anything approaching USD70-a-night, let alone 110. It looks, feels and should be at least a four-star hotel but is so dated that it’s three stars at best. For sure, it’s functional and the setting is sublime (right by the lake), but facilities are old and dirty around the edges.
The room itself was comfortable, and the bed was nice. TV had satellite television whilst breakfast was rather good. The bathroom was ok – shower was hot and fairly strong – but the toilet flush wasn’t great. The bathroom itself was where it looks the most dated. No cleaners during my stay – they were advised to stay at home – but the hotel continued to function, amazingly. No internet at the time - for obvious reasons.
Good 25-minute walk to the main street in the city, and about another ten minutes further to the Corniche. No idea about amenities – nothing was opened at the time!
