This hotel could be so much more, but the effect is that no one cares enough to maintain it. I enjoyed the location - high atop a hill overlooking the busy university area. It was quiet, with access to peaceful forest walks.
However, the pool area was neglected, and stagnant ponds and fountains were allowed to become algae-ridden mosquito nurseries. The floors in my rooms were hard, stained concrete and the furnishings were dusty and tired. The entire place needs a major renovation.
Wifi is free, but is only accessible in the lobby area. There are 2 desktop computers for guests' use, but good luck getting onto the Internet from those dinosaurs. The staff are sympathetic and try to be helpful but are far from tech savvy.
Breakfast is the only meal available at this time, but perhaps that is a blessing. A sparse buffet is provided each morning, and hot entrees, omelets, French toast can be ordered as well.
I cannot recommend the B2 Ayatana at this time. With a major overhaul and new management perhaps this hotel can be returned to its former prominence. If you decide to stay here, make sure you have very good malaria meds.More
