I found this hotel perfectly acceptable as a solo female traveller - especially for the price you're paying! I found it to be well located about 10-15 mins walk from the water front. I stayed a total of 4 nights in two different rooms - both were clean and in working order (admittedly when travelling my room is just a bed and bathroom though). The breakfast provided included everything I could want (I especially appreciated the egg station), so I'm not sure what any previous poor comments regarding breakfast relate to. If you have to check out early, they were more than happy to put together a breakfast box - simple, but it did the job. I didn't have any problems with the wifi in my room nor in the common areas. It is very close to the mosque though, so the morning and evening call to prayer is quite loud. As long as you're prepared for that, I think you'll be fine.
I'd happily stay here again.
