Confort moyen (sans doute en concordance avec le prix) Bien que l’endroit soit gardé par « des » vigiles, la sécurité ne semblait pas y être (porte fenêtre avec verrous qui ne fonctionnait pas et accès facile via le balcon). Le transfert vers l’hôtel si vous arrivez de nuit laisse à désirer (attente de 1h à 2h avant que le soit disant chauffeur qui vous attendait n’arrive vous chercher...énorme !) Service des membres de l’hôtel excellent en dépit de tout

ストーンタウンからは少し遠いが、ゆっくりと時間を過ごすには最適な宿。 スタッフがローカル感たっぷりで優しい人達。 設備が少し悪いが、ここまで来てそれを期待しても仕方ない。

Hôtel intéressant car navette pour l’aéroport gratuite. Surtout y passer qu’une nuit si vous avez une nuit à prendre. Sinon vraiment pas top.
