Stayed two nights in this hotel. The staff were incredibly welcoming and extremely helpful throughout our visit. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean, well equipped and of high quality. Breakfast was excellent too with anything you could hope to eat. Nice to have small pool on the roof with a bar and fabulous views out over the city. Ideally located... More

Location was excellent - Ben Than markets around the corner, short walk to shopping centres. The room was comfortable with an interesting shower enclosure. Breakfast had a nice view and was well presented. Front of house staff could not have been more helpful whether it be with luggage, finding directions, getting us across the road.

The hotel is in a great location - central to all the major sights. A friendly staff welcomed us after a very late overseas flight. The room was small but clean. The buffet breakfast consisted a variety of dishes including local fruits. Overall a reasonably, comfortable, basic hotel.

Location wise, it just walking distance to almost all attractions in the city. Very convenient roam around even late at night.
