    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    The location and cleanliness was a plus. However there was no air conditioning which meant we were melting in the heat. It was difficult to sleep at night despite having two fans working.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

    The hotel is a bit old, and not up to date with the equipment, but it’s in a pretty quite location and in a walking distance to major attractions, so it’s pretty convenient for tourists. Hotel staff are very friendly too!
