1/5

    They over booked this property and insisted I stay in some random hotel across town. As a solo female traveler to South America, I put a lot of research and thought into where I was staying. I was already a little un-nerved about staying at Bantu. And after arriving and carrying my suitcase for blocks they informed me that they were over booked. With NO advance warning. I insisted on a full refund. They sent me an email (completely in Spanish), stating they refunded Expedia. I am Still waiting on my refund. I ended up staying at the Eurostar hotel. If you’re looking at this one, just stay away. You’ll see another couple reviews just like mine. You always want to think they’re the bad apples or it just won’t happen to you. If you’re looking for a stress Free experience, Bantu is not for you.
