Hotel Emerald
Good location in the Westlands area. Close to many restaurants, bars clubs and casinos. The hotel is based within a shopping complex on the 6th floor. Staff were friendly and helpful. The girl at reception helped book a day tour which included a tour to the National Park, Baby Elephant Sanctuary, Snake and Crocodile Park.

Not worth the price
The pictures that are shown on websites must be when the hotel first open up. The rooms look nothing like the pictures and was quite dated. I checked in late, due to a late flight and when I arrived at the hotel ALL workers were asleep. Checking was painless and quick. Arriving at the room I found it to have outdated furniture and very dark inside. Lights were missing bulbs, the refrigerator did not work, mold was in every crack of the shower floor. Cable had limited channels. WIFI was so slow that I had to go into the hallway to use it. Breakfast was adequate. The big plus was all hotel workers and security were friendly and gave you a greeting when they saw you, so I had no problem with the staff. This is NOT a three star hotel and managment / owners should be ashamed to charge the prices they are charging. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, and would never stay there again unless they upgrade the rooms.

Hotel With Locked Fire Exits = Fire Trap
Terrible experience. Compensated only by the nice staff. I think they know the hotel is a terrible place and they try to please guests the best they could. The floor tiles at this hotel are stained everywhere. The safety standard is so poor this hotel should not be at The Hotel starts at the 6th floor of a building... accessed only by an elevator.... the stairwell is locked.. Although there is a guard by the elevator door and the locked stairwell, I am not sure how he will react during an emergency like a fire incident. There is a separate emergency exit.. and that too is locked! and unmanned. Good forbids a fire breaks out.. I will never book at this hotel again and I will never recommend.
