Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Disliked: Staff & service
The property was chosen because it is walking distance to the US Embassy. The restaurant did not serve my son and I for dinner. There was nothing else near except CircleK!!!! The restaurant was not busy, 2 other sets of people but one set was 8 people. Another table of 3 sat after us and was server!!!! The table of 8 sat after us!!!! Finally after 25 min the waiter came and told us they ran out of things and it would be best to go someplace else. I AM A SEASONED TRAVELER AND NEVER HAVE EVEN HEARD OF THIS BEFORE. You can contact me for more details of this saga. Thankfully we were there just 1 night.
