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。

Passable pour 1 nuit
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.
