Nice hotel. Good location. A very good environment. Friendly staff. I recommend this hotel for anyone who's looking for a good value for money. The hotel compound is refreshing as it is full of tress and vegetation.

The hotel looks really good, the service is great, and it feels like an oasis of peace in a city that doesn't look so pretty or peaceful. The restaurant is also great. I haven't tried my luck in the Casino.
