First impression was poor as the lady checking us in was really unfriendly, however the rest of the staff were fabulous. Great pool area, clean room & good food in the restaurant which was cheap and huge portions. Really good location two minutes from Bangla Road. But quiet at the hotel, perfect.

A lot of hotels just offer a place to stay, but the expat offers much more. It has a...
