We had a small studio room for one night prior to a dive trip. The room was very clean and comfortable, if a little small. We had a balcony with a small table and chairs, but this overlooked the shopping mall and a main road. The mall had rooftop air conditioning units and the noise was terrible when the doors...

The location was perfect for us. The room was very clean. A clothes-drying rack was provided for our use. Although we didn't use the service, we liked that information was provided about a local restaurant meal delivery service. The WIFI was easy to connect to, and provided an adequate amount of MB for our needs. The only negative we had...

Our apartment was spacious & spotlessly clean. We were pleasantly surprised to find we had booked such a comfortable room. There was an air-conditioner in both the living room & bedroom so our apartment was cool around the clock. Kitchen facilities excellent & nice to have a little balcony overlooking the garden. Large bathroom. Good in-room laundry facilities. The décor...

The owner would not let her in despite the booking was in her name and made her stand outside and call me (the grandmother of the baby) to get the baby out of bed and come downstairs to let her...
