I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel, facilites and accommodations were after walking to the hotel from the bus station. I took the shuttle from the airport and found the bus station area is very safe-feeling.The hotel, however, is in a 'dicey' area with nightclubs and what I thought were strip clubs.... As a solo traveler, I wasn't sure what I was getting into as I journied on foot to the hotel. However, I found a more comfortable route for sight-seeing after I checked in.
I WOULD recommend this hotel but just so you know the area abit.
Internet in my room that had windows on 2 sides!
Staff very nice!
