Good for the price
Hotel was good and not bad for the price. Located very close to the airport. Just 5 mins walk from the airport. The service in the reception was very good.

No air con for over two weeks
Hotel in great location adjacent to airport with free shuttle. We saw a sign upon check on the counter next to us that said no air con. The temp was 25C. The front office personnel said there was no air con for two weeks and would not be addressed until four more days. Offered a small fan. First room smelt moldy so requested another room. Second room was better and had no smell. Windows not able to be opened so was an extremely uncomfortable night before long 13 hour flight. Disappointed this was not made known to us that air con was out for over two weeks before arriving at hotel. Made reservation over one month before travel. Also, technician present repairing issue with fire alarm system noted upon check in. Please check condition of air con before arriving especially in warm weather. Too bad as it would have been a nice stay in a convenient location for the airport if not for this air con issue.

Week Stay
Very pleasant and reasonably priced, the location was well out of the conjested city traffic and peaceful. Staff was kind and quick in processing any requests.

Nice place.
On arrival, after 1400, we were told the room was not quite ready. We were offered complimentary beverage while we waited. We stuck around for maybe 15-20 mins and decided we might see if they'd keep our bags while we went downtown. When we got to the counter our rooms were ready. The property was very nice. The room was comfortable. We were able to walk to the airport and grab the shuttle into town and the next day we walked back to the airport to catch our flight out. Breakfast was good and they had a couple adult beverages on tap.
