This hotel is part of a collection of hotels acquired by the same people so it also says the 'Bizu Hotel' outside. They also own a hotel next door and one further down the road! This may be confusing so make sure you check the number of the hotel.
This hotel was a pleasant surprise. Its right in the middle of the backpacker area so do expect some street noise but we experienced very little in our room and slept soundly. The wifi signal was excellent and the bed was very comfortable and much softer than the standard hard mattresses which seem to be prevalent in Asia. The room was very clean and there was a really big ensuite bathroom with hot water and a hot shower - luxury!
Breakfast is served in the morning on the 10th floor which has amazing views across the city. There is a menu of offerings to choose from as well as fruit, juices and coffee etc so we were always well filled.
The management spoke excellent English and were extremely friendly and helpful. Other members of night staff spoke little English but made good use of Google translate!
The location of the hotel is really convenient, within walking distance of many of the sights and centrally located in district 1.
We stayed for three nights and really liked it there. Unfortunately, money went missing from our room safe while we were out. The management were keen to help me and were able to offer reassurances and there is cctv etc. They were absolutely sure this could not have happened. Sadly we are absolutely sure that it did. Despite this, we would consider staying there again, but we would take more of our own security measures.
