10/10 Exceptional

The pool was pretty cold and the breakfast was small. But other than that this place was great. Bed was large and comfortable, location is near a lot of food and drink opportunities, located back off the main road just enough to be quiet, plenty of trees and plants add to the chilled out vibe. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would love to stay here again.

4/10 Fair

The key power slot not located beside the door. Groping in the dark to find it. Also, the tiles in the room is very slippery. Be careful, it is hazardous. You can easily slip and fell if your legs are wet.

4/10 Fair

The staff is amazing and my room was nice but there are serious issues that will prevent me from returning. First the listing contains a number of false statements. The rooms are far from soundproof and there is a popular night club right behind the hotel. There is no spa, restaurant or bar. They also do not have luggage storage. We had 10 hours between when we checked out and our flight and they wanted to store our luggage in a hallway right nest to the elevator. The biggest concern i have is the lack of security. The lighting is poor in all common areas. There are no deadbolts or any type of actually security grade locks. They also use the scans of peoples ID and passports as scratch paper. I received several receipts with someone's ID printed on the back.

8/10 Very good

Solo Canadian traveler
The staff was very nice and helpful with anything I needed or any concern. The breakfast was really good and the ladies preparing it were awesome! The BEST coffee ever! And the cleaning people were also great. The location is pretty good if you want to enjoy the street food or get a massage. The scooters are annoying but you will find that anywhere here. The gym needs some repairs but still usable. All in all a great experience at the hotel. Thank you!

The staff was Excellent. It felt like a little tropical resort in the middle of the city. The cats were always friendly also. It could use some fixing up in the showers and the beds were too old. Other than that, excellent option for the price!
