    Avoid if you are a foreigner

    The staff was either friendly or moody depending on the day. The hotel is not really catering to foreign travellers but more for local people. Bar staff likes to overcharge foreigners. Overall I would say avoid this place if u don't wanna end up frustrated.

    Was pleasantly surprised with the comfort, cleanliness and excellent customer service. Was expecting a not-so-great experience based on what people were telling me.
