I really love the place. Staffs are very polite, enthusiastic, helpful, ready to help you. The manager Patrick is very nice man always ready to help clients and I was so impressed about the size of the rooms. Breakfast was so good but I did not use the restaurant. For sure I will go back.

Room was basic but OK. Noisy church next to the hotel with loud music on some evenings till late. Restaurant was expensive and food very basic (not good value for the money). Breakfast is very very basic.

I think the last 2 reviewers were probably the only ones not on some form of substance abuse when they stayed here because if you believe any of the good reviews, you have either had a frontal lobotomy or you are Mother Theresa. I stayed here back in April for 2 nights of hell with dive bombing mosquitoes and construction 1m away from my head. I was so glad they sent me to the bush! However, to my dismay they put me back in here for my return trip a couple of weeks ago and guess what - nothing has changed. Still the same kamikaze mosquitoes and you guessed it, constant construction. I'll never understand why our organisation insists on putting their staff here. They must hate us. We have no choice but you do, so avoid at all costs. Sleeping on the street would be preferable and you'd probably not get malaria either.

I can only suspect that some reviewers have a personal interest in the hotel...because it is HORRIBLE. I have stayed there twice and know many people who have stayed there over the past year and it has taken on legendary status for us all: infested with mosquitoes and no nets provided; pitiful breakfast (white bread, nescafe, a lump of cold omelets if you get there early enough -- otherwise nothing); dirty, cramped rooms with miserably uncomfortable beds; dreadful service; on-going construction; and an evangelical church next door that is very loud at all hours. The first night, I got 35 mosquito bites. The second night I rigged up a travel net as best I could and got 20. AVOID.

As I read the last reviewer's post I wondered if we stayed in the same hotel or if the quality and service had deteriorated that much in the past year. It must be the latter. The rooms were kept clean and the AC was nice and cool, but the hall carpets were awfully dirty and the service was poor. I came in and out of the hotel every day for one week carrying three big, heavy bags I needed for work. Only once did any hotel staff offer to help me. For the most part, the lobby was empty of staff whenever I passed through. Breakfast is a simple affair of bread, jam, butter, coffee and tea. Occasionally there was some fruit. You have to ask if you want an egg or omelet; there was no obvious indication that this was part of the breakfast service. My first night there I ordered vegetable soup with nice bits of vegetables floating in a savory (if a tad salty) broth. So I ordered the same soup the next day and received something that looked and tasted like vegetable mush. After that I stopped eating at the hotel restaurant for anything but breakfast. Beware the first set of stairs leading upstairs: the steps are of different heights so it's easy to trip.
