Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The hotel was clean and the staff very professional. The toilets however had a perculiar smell that was not good. I guess it’s due to blowback from the soak away. They should improve on that as it affects the smell in the room.

2/5 Poor

After they reached out us to offer an airport shuttle and get all of our flight information, there was no one there for pick up when we arrived. Then after paying for a taxi to get to the hotel, when we arrived at Cari, they had oversold the hotel. They sent some of our group to a hotel 45 minutes away, and we had to pay for our own taxis to get there. Most of the reason we selected Cari was to be close to the conference venue, so it was very frustrating to have our group split and some of the team so far away. Also, we had been in touch with their team until just a few days before our trip and were assured the rooms were ready and still available.

3/5 Okay

Decent hotel 10 min away from the city center
The hotel was a bit worn and can be put in the budget+ category, but if you are content with a basic hotel this would work fine. The service was very good, and the personnel was always polite and smiling. Breakfast was basic. The hotel is a bit away from the inner city area, but only a 10 min moto or car ride away and in the same area as several other similar hotel.s
