I booked a family room. The exterior of the building looked old BUT the family room I booked was spacious and very comfortable. Shocked me in fact to see such a big room. The extra space can be considered as a small living area. Location was very central and within walking distance to many areas. value for money.

Location: Its a golden location! smack in between Hyatt and Le Meridien, short walk to street shops, food stalls, restaurants, waterfront... Building Its located on a row of very aged...

The first room we checked in was a bit small, but we managed to change to a bigger room with additional reasonable bucks. The bed is pretty comfy and...

After reading all the good reviews on Tripadvisor, I decided to stay here for a night. After I told my friend where I was staying her comment was "Segama area? Why you stay there...that area not safe!". At first, I thought...well where is safe... you have bad people everywhere. When I arrived at the hotel....boy did I regret booking this...
