Stay at Friendship International Hotel

The hotel is good. But the amenities in the bathroom its like they were in short supply. I had to go buy my own liquid soap from the shops. They provide a small shampoo and a very small bath foam, even from a room booked for 2. The small bottles were even half filled or sometimes used. Breakfast was really terrible. We had to go eat breakfast at Marriott hotel everyday despite the fact that we paid for bed and breakfast.

    • Liked: Staff & service

    I like the property because of its location. I have stayed there many times because of its location. The issue is the internet within the hotel is horrible. I go complete days without internet. This is an issue that should be resolved.
