Good stop over in a multi day trip
One night stay in a small (tiny?) room with all required commodities: A net at the window would allow to sleep with an open window. Front desk and room services are very good. The breakfast buffet is OK. Wifi is weak and unsteady. The hotel is very well situated in a quiet street of Akwa district.
