No fan no A/C cable channels the environment very noisy

Stayed 3 nights in Nov. 2019

Pros: the staff attitude and the room i wa sstaying in

Cons: there is need to spray the rooms in order to eliminate cockroaches.

Location: it's within walking distance of CBD. conveniently located. surrounded by shops. there are two churches close by for spiritual refreshments.

Trip was good


  • Liked: Cleanliness

Well located but rooms bare

No electricity when we landed past midnight. There was general black out so hotel not to be blamed but there was no fall back of any sort... Wi fi signals irregular. Bathroom lacks bucket and mug..toilet must have jet to clean up backside.. Cleanliness good but sanitary design and maintenance average. Breakfast average but service good. Front desk good. No telephone in room but tv reasonably good.
