Cheap and clean, but far from the metro
Posted May 19, 2015
Friendly staff that speaks some english. Inexpensive and the rooms are cleaned daily. The cheapest rooms like I stayed in are very small. No desk, just a nightstand, a shelf and a coat hanger. Twin sized bed. Sheets replaced daily. Bathrooms are very clean and have good showers with hot water at a good water pressure. the only downfall is that it is pretty far from the metro, about 5-10 minutes walk from the bus, but I do NOT recommend walking at night. My friends who live in the area say it is dangerous crime-wise and there are many areas where there are no streetlights. If you plan to take cabs, it should be fine though it may offset some of your savings. If you take a bus and the metro, it could take an hour to get to the center of the city. Maybe 20 minutes by cab with no traffic. Only did it once. Laundry service was same day and very inexpensive. Restaurant was okay too, but the coffee etc was a bit pricy compared to what you can get elsewhere in the city. Location is far from most restaurants too. for the price though, this was a very good experience. I would definitely consider staying again. Cabs to the airport are available at the front desk and inexpensive.
