Location was excellent - bang in the middle of the city; very close to Levy Mall and next door to Cairo ROad mall. Airport is not too far away. Check-in and check-out was very smooth. they even have a pick-up / drop-off from the airport although i did not use it.
The good things - bed was good; restaurant menu though limited was good in taste and portion size; breakfast spread was basic but wholesome and hearty; staff were helpful; room size was ok; free wifi;
The cons - internet speed was woeful; having to reconnect every now and then was also quite frustrating; bathrooms could have been a bit bigger; amenities are not restocked every day - so you have to make do with the basic soap; the corridors are a bit tired - the lighting can certainly improve; the lifts are scary;
