Wonderful breakfast, clean, big rooms, great value. The bottom floor can smell kind of musty during rainy season so you may avoid them. The hotel is centrally located, but the city does not have cross walks and is not the prettiest of cities.

I spend very good time every time I use this hotel. Installations are very good and the clerks are very nice people, they make you feel as if you were at home. The rooms are exceptional, the jacuzzy is super and Gym facilities are just excelent.

Excellent customer service. Horrible food. The trip was unplanned the hotel was full and the staff accommodated my needs beautifully. I was disappointed on food although nicely presented I was unsure of what I was eating. Also the screaming music from the restaurant wafting into the lobby was distracting.

This is very nearly a four-star hotel, because the rooms are very nice and the facilities are good. However, I have to round down to three stars because the food service is only so-so, the WiFi is somewhat spotty, and the neighborhood is dreary. On the positive side, the rooms (both bedrooms and bathrooms) are spacious and clean. The beds...

I was a little surprised. It was nicer than I expected. Had "sleep number" like beds in the first room I was in. The bar area and staff were great. Fast service at reception. Restaurant experience has me removing a star. (Maybe 2)

We grabbed a bottle of water in the room as we were desperate - nowhere nearby to buy bottled water and they don't sell it at the hotel. We knew it would be expensive, but this takes gouging to a new level: They charged us $US7.50 for a bottle of water! Really, that is just outrageous! I don't want to...

This is an great hotel to stay at. The rooms are comfortable, the internet has decent speed, and the breakfast was DELICIOUS. It's located within walking distance of downtown and cabs are readily available. The receptionist are very nice and speak English. I would recommend this location for anyone looking to relax.
