needs to improve but location is okay
This place has been better before. The room had a good size but there were plenty of mosquitoes in the room which made it impossible to sleep. staff in the hotel is friendly Breakfast could be improved, could still be simple but improved.

Very good 8.0
Affordable and convenient
Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean. Great internet. Bathroom fixtures worn but functional. Nice walk to UN Compound, US embassy, Village Market. I didn't try use the pool. My room faced a main highway so things were a bit noisy sometimes.
