"Despite the unfortunate exterior, the hotel has warm, gracious spaces inside -- tribal masks and wall hangings adorn the interior, with hand-knotted rugs laid out on stone-tile floors." Full review
Avoid the standard rooms, which are a little depressing, with miniscule bathrooms, shin-high beds, and that modular dark-wood look that can be off-putting at the end of the day; superiors are neater and larger, and have balconies, good beds, and alright bathrooms.
