We had a bit of difficulty arriving - you have to go to Citin Loft - across the street and down the alley to check-in and get your key before you can go to Royal Express. When you are checking in, ask directly for a room off the road, I asked through my online booking and forgot to ask upfront and was put in a room facing the road. Very noisy.
There is a welcoming security guard at the door to the hotel and the cleaning staff are lovely.
Overall the room was on par. Had nice blackout curtains, was nice and clean, and the room had all the amenities you needed. The bed was unusually hard. The bathroom was very industrial, with public-style toilet paper dispenser (with not very nice toilet paper) and a poorly maintained (dirty) water heater - it lacked the little touches of a nice hotel bathroom. We realize that this is a budget hotel.
The location was good, apart from being right on the road. Very quick walk to the beach.
We would probably return, as knowing what you're getting into can be better than another shot in the dark. But a room off the road is a must.
