Guest reviews for Hotel Lobelia

Business (1)
4 out of 5

Staff went the extra mile to meet our needs.

Pros: Close to the airport. Wifi. Walking distance to shops.
Cons: The gym equipment. The drains in bathrooms release sewer gas. The food is mediocre.
By local standards this is a very decent hotel. For some reason we came expecting 4 star service and amenities and were initially quite disappointed. However, the manager and staff worked extremely hard, even shifting furniture around, to make our stay very comfortable. It is definitely 3 star, but you will be welcomed, and attended to, with a short ride to the airport and decent shops and places to eat within walking distance.
