    Avoid for business trip, perhaps ok for a backpack

    As you may guess from the name, this place is first a bar, and then, way after, perhaps a hotel. Your room is basically just above the bar, so sleeping without earplugs before 1am on a Saturday will be complicated. The staff doesn't speak English, or not at all which is unprofessional for a capital city hotel. Hence every communication is hard. The double bed is actually two single beds next to each other, which of course is uncomfortable if you would like to sleep in the middle of your bed. Even the sheets are for 2 single beds. The shower is not separated from the bathroom, so when you have a shower, the entire bathroom is wet. The WiFi was either not working at all, or not sufficient to be used in the room. But perhaps most annoyingly was the fact that the bar is full of prostitutes waving to you as you go upstairs to your room. Also quite difficult to feel home in that context. Unless you're a prostitute ? Room size was good, as well as the AC, breakfast was ok but starting too late at 8am. Poor value for money in general, 50$ a night in my case.

    You definitely get what you pay for! I had to switch out of 3 bedrooms cause they either had mold or just plain smelled. Finally the fourth bedroom I was placed in was relatively clean and nice. The receptionist was very helpful and understanding. The location was perfect for me which is why I didn’t want to leave.

    Great location, practical hotel

    Lovely large room with fridge and table areas. En-suite was functional but not overly pleasant. Some music could be heard from bar downstairs. Good location with shops and beach nearby. Expensive but good airport transfer. Safe place with nice staff.

    Nice staff

    The staff was very pleasant and organized a transportation from the airport and into our next venue. Breakfast was a nice surprise. The hotel room was clean and with good air conditioning. Good wifi!

    Sevice og tilstand!!

    Ophold, service og værelse var helt godt. Det eneste minus er hotellets tilstand - mangel på vedligeholdelse Det trænger til en lettere renovering / bedre vedligeholdelse.
