    Its local its lively and its full of real people. Decent food and good value, Same with the rooms and location is OK with taxis and transport available. If you want the sterile chain hotel with glass and marble this is not for you.

    It's my second visit in 6 years and the building has been improved and the bar more lively and more smiles. A great base for a DSM adventure and a perfect watering hole in a hot and sticky climate for the young and playful
