    Very helpful staff. I would get a specific location before travelling as my taxi driver couldn’t find it. At reception they were wonderful.

  • 4.0.Fair

    We had two rooms: one was fine, the other one had a strong smell of mould -- really not nice. We asked to change room but we were told the hotel was full. The staff apologised, but it felt a gesture would have been appropriate. Empty shower gel dispenser too. Otherwise the hotel is by no means luxurious, but we kew that and that is fine.

    Horrible

    Installée au 2eme etage avec mon fils de 1 an qui commence seulement à marcher. Jai du porter tous mes bagages seule avec mon bébé dans les bras. Personne ne m'a proposé d'aide. Jai eu lit enfant sans matelas juste avec un drap donc mon fils na pas pu dormir dedans. Beaucoup de moustiques. Quartier mal fréquenté. Repas du soir mauvais
