The reputation of this hotel is overdone. The personnel has a steady incoming of embassy staff from the area and take the clientele for granted. The benefits of staying there are exceeded by inconveniences.
+ Walking distance from the embassies;
+ Free shuttle service during the day;
+ Nice and tidy lobby bar;
+ Complete morning brunch.
Rooms: Unclean. Stained and burnt carpets. Some of the showers have mold in it. Make sure you visit your room before settling in one;
Internet: Slow and unaccessible in the room when there is rain;
Netflix: unaccessible due to the hotel network configuration;
Electricity: no electricity for hours.
Kitchenette: Inconvenient (i.e. we had to use the bread knife because there was no chef knife);
Daily replenishment of complimentary coffee and tea: Not made. Had to be demanded;
Staff: Arrogant to the brink of disrespect.
Swimming pool: not regularly maintained. There were alot of flies and it had to be closed down during the day for a chlore treatment;
Gym: Untidy with outdated equipment.
There is not point at all in staying at this hotel for other purpose then working at the UK, Australian or US embassies which are next door. Staying longer then two nights is definitely not recommended.More
