From the start Maru and the rest of the staff were so helpful. We arrived 3 hours early and it was no problem for them to come get us. Our room was amazing with a balcony overlooking the desert. The rooftop restaurant was a great place to chill out and escape the hustle and bustle, but it was only about a 10 minute walk to get into the heart of the city. The rest of our group arrived the next day and we refreshed ourselves at Helsinki House before departing on the midnight train. Superb service and quiet location were the highlights.

It never felt like I was staying in a hotel...people are friendly with you and they talk as you know them from years.

Maru booked safari trip for me which was an awesome one. I am RE fan and the owner had it there parked, while in the conversation he realized it and handed over the RE keys for one evening and suggests places to visit nearby..I have attached a picture with RE..

Food was just delicious. The people who were serving was very polite and the shef just cooked what we loved to eat. The rates are super reasonable.

Roof top restaurant location happened to be a place where myself was busy writing and my wife enjoyed reading books, early morning view from the top, it's just awesome.

Because of the love and time I spent at the hotel I extended a day stay which was the correct decision. I will surely visit several times because of the hospitality, food, Location, staff... Everything.

Such a beautiful place! From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and made to feel at home. The room we had was lovely, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was amazing. The service was excellent, breakfast was good and it was so relaxing to enjoy a beer with a view on the rooftop. It is situated a bit out of town which was good as it was quiet and afforded a fantastic view of the fort. Would have liked to stay longer!
