Staff were pleasant. I enjoyed visiting the market place near by
No wash cloths
The pool was nice but the picture in booking is not real. It has a huge roof
The location is extremely dangerous. Do not walk outside, take always a taxi. I would not recommend this hotel just because of it
Conveniently close to bus stop - easy walking distance with our bags. Very good breakfast included - toast, fruit, juice, tea/coffee, rice and beans, scrambled eggs, plaintain. Friendly and courteous staff. The pool looked nice too, although we didn't swim in it.
The neighbourhood seemed a little dodgy. I'm not sure what restaurant and eating options outside the hotel where like, as we only stayed one night and arrived late/left early.
Clean, modern and great breakfast.
Rather dangerous area to walk around at night. A bit noisy area, too. Had to take a cab to get to town and dinner and back.
Very nice pool...breakfast was good...staff super nice
Well...the neighborhood is dicey...but I'm from Chicago and it wasn't anything that bothered me a lot
Location ,friendly staff ,cleanness .

Friendly staff. I lost my room key and they didn't charge for a replacement
