There is also Hotel Samaan attached to this hotel. The food requires improvisation though, but clean hotel and quick service. Airport is about 30-45 mints from here...

The rooms were basic but clean and the bath and toilet was spacious and clean and...

The problem with most government run places is the service and they are badly maintained. Here he service is average and sluggish, although a few staffers are pleasant. The lawns and plants are nice, but the rooms are not so well kept. One of the rooms smelt of pesticide, another room was damp and had a musty smell. There are...
