Fair property.

I struggled to give a 3 star rating on the review. Although the staff try their best, further training is required. Though the rooms are spacious, the property is a bit 'worn out' and in need of refurbishment. As we entered our room, we noticed the carpet was soaking wet. Don't know, and don't want to know where this dampness was coming from. The bathroom was very small, and the wood of the inside room was rotting due it it constantly being wet. Breakfast was quite good with plenty of choice. The local coffee was excellent!

Great place to stay if you enjoy dysfunctional plumbing, erratic internet access, broken air-conditioners, alternately cold and scalding showers, dirty bed linens, theft, and hapless service. It's almost impossible to believe that this is a brand new hotel, and not a cheap stay either. A really, truly, deeply frustrating experience.

Excellent view but...

Posted Jul 19, 2016
Pros: Friendly and professional staff. Location is excellent! The rooftop views amazing! The price was great!
Cons: I don't know how you would get rid of an odd old smell that was present at least in my room. It was a turn off.
Location: It was smack dab in a very busy part of the city which is fantastic!!
The hotel staff were professional, awesome and friendly!! The location is excellent!! The rooftop view is amazing!! However, there was an old old old smell in the room that I couldn't get passed it. Now, I only stayed overnight in one room. I can't vouch for the other rooms. I would recommend the hotel for location, friendly staff, excellent location and the amazing rooftop views!! The price was great but I was uncomfortable with the smell. I was taken aback and thought this popular hotel chain could have done better. But maybe this is the first that they ever heard of a complaint of an odd old smell. I admit to being very sensitive to smells that contribute to migraines. I would only return if the smell was gone!

Business trip to dar

Hotel is in a Gd location, the service at reception was good, rooms looked clean, but the bedding needs a complete change, the duvet n pillows have a stale smell, the mattress was too hard, carpet had a damp smell...for the amount charged I think better hotels can be found with better bedding and atmosphere...not to forget the extra charges done 5% per day so be ready for it...also the breakfast was charged and then had to get my confirmation that it was including breakfast...So check your bills...next trip Will try another hotel..
