This hotel was booked for me by the local Government, and clearly there must have been something in it for them. The hotel is a 15 min taxi ride from any form of civilianisation and the receptionist insisted we pay for the whole stay on arrival. This meant I was trapped and could not book an alternative hotel as getting a refund would have been met with the usual loss of language skills. In summary: there was no hot water for the whole week; the internet they promised was intermitent at best and the food was poor and no breakfast choice - one morning there was nothing to eat as the chef didn't turn up. Complaining to the reception staff had no effect as she would not pass problems through the 4 or 5 layers of management for fear of reprisals. I received notification that the manager had a greed a 20% refund; however, getting this was a story on its own as all the staff tried to give me the runaround - I waiting for 3 hours for the manager because he was busy and then he failed to turn up. In the end I got a Government official to come to the hotel to sort it out and even then the management had taken a 'handling fee' off the 20%! Please please please go somewhere else, if all the other hotels are full, book a different date rather than stay here.
