On the walk to this fine establishment you pass a smelly rubbish tip on your left, unused squatters building on your right, way too many dogs for just one area, and if you are luck you don’t get run down by either a taxi or a bike who are using this as a shortcut to avoid the main roads. After trekking for more than 10 minutes around various back alleys you come across the open reception desk where there is no security, you ask “is this the only access option” and are told yes! The “superior” room is located on the ground floor (again reminder that there is no security). If this still does not horrify you, go ahead and check out the bathroom!! For what is supposed to be a newly renovated hotel the shower curtains alone must be more than 5 years old – with the 5 years of mould to go with it! Oh also – speaking to the locals, the hotel is a no go zone as it was not blessed by them. The hotel has changed owners 4 times and each time they have not listened to what the locals have to say! I did not end up staying there, even though I had paid for the accommodation in full via Agoda. I was very disappointed as the photos are very deceiving and I had to fork out the extra money to say somewhere else.
