Cons: Too far away, 2 hours on metro from airport, beds so hard, pillows non existent, twenty min walk from metro Pros: Wifi, clean, air con, nice restaurant beside it Note when you get to the metro stop come out exit 1 and turn right onto main road, cross street at petrol station and go right again and keep walking.


The internet was very weak and no drinking water was provided. The staff was not very helpful and looked annoyed when we tried to ask questions. There was a laungage barrier but still it did not really seem like they wanted to help. The rooms were clean however and were tidied everyday.

If being far from everything don't scare you, why not. It's too cheap to comment the rest!

Overall you get what you pay for. Not a bad hotel, simply it was not as good as the other reviews made it out to be. We booked the hotel over a hostel that was the same price due to the higher rated amenities, but it was no nicer than a hostel. Might as well book a hostel and have a better location. Also, the wifi was basically useless.
