I stayed total of almost 30 nights over two separate occasions. Hotel rooms were clean and basic. The best of all, the location is very good. It is very close from the airport. A lot of shops and restaurants. The supermarket down stair is a nice and convenient addition to the facility.

Don't expect anything amazing. But don't worry about any disaster either. This is a very good hotel for short business trips... for a few days maybe few weeks. When you need to stay a few months, it may get a bit difficult, as this is absolutely beside the main road, one of the noisiest in the city. So, in case...

It was the rainy season, rivers of rainwater in the streets, but inside Wassamar I was dry, safe, looked after and fine. My room on the 7th floor was clean and well furnished with a separate lounge,...

Clean, bright rooms, hot and strong water in the showers, and lots of free water every day. It's a quite nice place for an affordable price, and I always...
