Excellent value hotel in good location
The hotel is great value. Room was well equipped, clean and in good condition. We booked a room with a window which was worth the extra money. Hotel location is fairly good, a bit of a walk to the historic centre of town, but there is a good bus service and malls / restaurants nearby.

Good 6.0
Central but amenities lacking.
A reasonably new hotel. Room is compact but fine. It's clean. Bed is firm. Location near to food and shops and within walking distance to a number of tourist destinations. I booked the room for 2 persons but only one toothbrush given. I asked Housekeeping and they say only one is given and if needed extra to request from Reception. Also noted no soap provided. Again asked Housekeeping they do not seem to know what I am talking about. Asked reception, they confirmed no soap provided so you need to bring your own soap or wash with either shampoo or body wash.

Everything was good except the WiFi. The WiFi was so bad that we couldn’t book an Uber to places instead took taxis which cost a fortune. Kindly consider to having a better WiFi!
