We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel. To be honest, as we were getting close to the hotel...the area seemed quite sketchy (even the driver warned us not to walk around when it is dark). The interior of the hotel was surprisingly updated/modern. There is a unique theme/colour scheme for each floor; our's was the disco floor. We were there for just one night; overall the beds were comfortable and the washroom (though a bit small and a little dated..might have been some plumbing issues as it smelled when we walked in the room of toilet sewage so we just kept the lid closed overnight) was fine. Our room had a pretty large balcony with a table and two chairs. The staff at the front desk gave us a good recommendation for a seafood restaurant that was just around the corner from the hotel and took the initiative to call for us before we walked over to make sure it was open (August is holiday season for many) & that a table was available. Overall a good hotel option if you want to be close to the airport.
