August 3, 2005
The accommodations were sparsely furnished but adequate. The beds, though, were very small and extremely hard, and the air-conditioning was turned completely off every time we left the room.
The advertised 7/24 food service was a misrepresentation, as the kitchen closed at midnight (and only the most meager snacks were available at the bar up until midnight). There was no room service. The hotel's only restaurant was really a cafeteria, and the food was not very good.
The towels (only one per person allowed) were small and rough, and the only bathroom amenity provided was an all-purpose liquid-soap dispenser on the bathroom wall. I was forced to find a market where I could purchase shampoo and bath soap.
We found the location to be advantageous, right on the metro line and within walking distance to the City Park. The hotel had only one computer terminal for Internet access. It was located in the lobby and closed for a full day while they repainted the wall over it.
There were several stag parties, so the noise level was always high. When we approached the front desk for directions or to book a taxi, few of them understood English and were rude and uncooperative.
I definitely would not recommend this hotel, nor will I stay here again.
