This property is well suited for the budget traveller wanting to be close to the main attractions of the city centre, It has a good location from which to reach many sights on foot including the bazaars and river. The facilities are limited and the interior basic which makes it unsuitable for families with children, certainly for a stay of more than a couple of nights.
This old style property stands directly on the pavement of a busy and noisy street but has a relatively tidy appearance. Some of the rooms have integral balconies, some of them a satellite dish and most with a protruding air-conditioning unit. The first floor has large arched windows with the ground floor frontage shared with neighbouring shops. A simple portico extends over the single door entrance.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
The split level lobby is dimly lit but a mirrored wall and white flooring create a larger appearance. A wooden fronted reception counter stands to the furthest end beyond a few clusters of soft seating with other features including plants in brass pots and framed prints on the walls. A single elevator stands next to an angular stairway. The bar, situated on the first floor overlooking the street, has wooden floor and comfortable seating. A narrow, enclosed circular stairway leads up to the second floor breakfast room.
There are no grounds at this property.
