    Great central location. Lovely staff but very limited English. Great roof terrace. Very small pool. Breakfast good. Nice range of fruits. WiFi good. The Bantu himself comes out mostly in the mornings.

    None of the rooms have balconies facing outside. The rooms all face an open atrium which is very light with lots of little niches to sit. Inside the rooms though, we felt it was very dark even with all the lights on.
