    It is a mistake to book this property through Expedia. Expedia did not send my reservations information to the property and it caused me so much headache. I paid for breakfast on one of the days I reserved but Expedia claimed to the property that there was no breakfast included.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Hotel SAWA is a great deal for a great hotel.

    Hotel SAWA is a great hotel in a good location. It is a good deal. The staff is very helpful. The on-site restaurant is clean and serves good food as well. The rooms are clean and serviced daily. The front desk staff are available and helpful. We have stayed there 3 times now. The main lobby is under construction at the moment, but they have done a good job of making the construction invisible.

    Needs some work !

    AC didn't go below 23deg, rooms are in desperate need of attention, there is a new lobby area being built. The pool and garden are a very nice place to relax and unwind, very friendly & helpful staff.
