My girlfriend and I stayed in Amzar as a little treat to ourselves after a fortnight in dorms. It was almost 3 times the price of the dorms we stayed in at Soluna guesthouse (lovely place, but had no rroms free), so we looked for something a bit more central.
I really wish we didn't bother moving. Negatives are:
- After agreeing a price for the 3 nights, the guy in the office pretended he had no clue and took it back, so took some work to get the price back to near what was agreed.
- The room was advertised with A/C. The A/C was so bad and took so long to cool the room we just left the card in to keep the power on and left it going 24/7.
- It was adverised as having a TV. There is a TV, but it has 3 channels which are all so blurry it would give you a headache.Pretty pointless.
- The room was just falling to pieces. The sink tap fell over every time you turned it on, and the balcony door didn't shut properly.
- In 4 days and 3 nights, not once was our bin emptied. I wouldn't normally mind this, but this is a country where you can't put toilet paper down the loo!
- WiFi is weak to non-existent, and we were right above the router, so should have been a lot better.
It's not a shocking place to stay, and the location is ok if you want to be seconds from the beach, but you can get a lot nicer and friendlier places for your money than this. I'd strongly recommend looking up Soluna Guesthouse, Cottage Guesthouse and Rainbow Guesthouse as these are friendlier, a bit more rustic, but in better condition, and away from the road, so it's beautiful and quiet, but you are still only a minute or two from the beach.
On the plus side, they did let us keep our bags in the reception office until our bus, and let us have a shower too.
