First off - the staff is wonderful, soft spoken and helpful!
Coming to the hotel, this place looks old. the rooms are very very small. the plug points dont work. Wifi doesnt work in the rooms, in the common area it works just fine.
the curtain of our room broke it wasnt fixed till our last hour in the room. we had to sleep without a curtain.
The location is fine. Its close to the restraunts and forodhini park and beach but then thats about it.
The restaurant at its top floor have a view from some seats but its pretty.
