Stayed here for 3 nights the start of February. The manager was lovely, we checked in and had some welcoming drinks. We were shown to our room which was up the stairs, in one of the rooms to the right. The sun was beating in the window, there was gaps under the main room door and the balcony door. There was little insects crawling around the floor and then we looked out side the window and saw the roosters (we had read about this on trip adviser and asked for a quite room). We went back to the manager and ask could we move to a different room. This was no problem as we had checked in early so there was rooms still unoccupied.
The room we moved to was much better, no gaps under the doors and the room was a lot cooler. The restaurant was good value for money as residents got 10% off every meal. You also got a free cocktail each night which was a nice touch. The only thing I would say was the staff were fine while the manager was there, they were all on their toes but during our stay he was off one day (think it was a Sunday) and the service in the hotel dramatically declined with staff wearing their normal clothes and practically rolling their eyes if you asked for anything. The Inthiria had a sister hotel down by the river and you could use there pool if you wished.
We booked the sunset hot air balloon ride through the hotel at $80 pp. Wouldn't recommend this due to the following reasons:
(a) Landed before the sun had set
(b) The pilot landed the balloon between two high voltage power lines, very dangerous.
(c) The heat from the over head flame was too close to our heads and unbearable. ( Peeling skin the following day)
(d) The balloon basket was over crowded, no real opportunity for pictures
However this is a great budget hotel, some nice clean rooms and its in a good location. I would just like to add also that the rooms do not have fridges, it would of been nice to have a fridge to keep our drinks cold.
