The hotel room was nothing to go by, furnished with some broken pieces of wood for bed. The linen not changed even after request, towels bore dark stains, whether you turned the knob...

I stayed in this hotel with my family (wife and 3 yr old daughter) from 26-28 Jan 2012. Researched about this hotel a lot before finally booking my stay. The reviews were mostly positive but it did have some negative ones as well. I willfully ignored the negative reviews and finally had to pay for my ignorance. Here is my...

Went to this Hotel in February 11. The hotel was a bit shabby but the garden and pool area was pleasant and the food was good. However, this is a budget hotel so you cannot expect a lot and for the price it was very good. The staff were very friendly. Rooms reasonably clean but very basic with television and...
