Only Location is good
Good thing about this hotel is Clean rooms and great location in white town, that’s it At first we did not get the room we booked for , Don’t go with pictures and disruption, In 14 room only two rooms has windows all rest are like coffins with all walls with fake window with no view or air , It’s a very small hotel , very noisy, Staff try to help but don’t do much , The service is extremely slow the basic food order take 45 minutes minimum to get anything, Staff is slow as sloths just say yes sir and do thinks there ways , Will not recommend nor what to stay with them ever , I am sure you will find better hotels around it
