However the rooms are very clean, pool is great.....2 blocks from mall- if you require some shopping therapy. Have to say all...

Handy location not far from all the action of Bangala Rd. Great little cafe and bar, loved the pool area, girl friendly if you know what I mean. Room was clean and tidy nice view of the pool area, but the bathroom was a tad on the smallish side.

First impression was poor as the lady checking us in was really unfriendly, however the rest of the staff were fabulous. Great pool area, clean room & good food in the restaurant which was cheap and huge portions. Really good location two minutes from Bangla Road. But quiet at the hotel, perfect.

There is a big double sided bar by the pool in the courtyard playing old rock and roll where a lot of the guests meet for meals and drinks. A lot of hotels just offer a place to stay, but the expat offers much more. It has a...
