Hotel was nice and well kept through, but a bit basic. Major complaint was sewage smell coming from shower room Location can be challenging if you come late as there are no restaurant facilities in house and no major shops near by, with some local ones closing early in the day. Suggestions to management: - Option to add to room bill for minor snacks / utilities from the vending machine would be great. Maybe a prepaid credit. - Checking the awful sewage smell coming from the shower room. - Cleaning under beds, etc. could be improved. - Many of the pictures here are from the standard Ibis hotel and not the Ibis budget. Suggestions for travellers: - Recommend the standard Ibis if you can afford a bit more. Or something with better access to the city altogether, if you come as a tourist, because you will struggle on feet. - Bring cash. No local ATM. You wont be able to get any food from the vending machine without coins. Local buses here also only accept cash payments.
