Don't accept the first room next to the office!

Pros: The lady who managed the place.
Cons: Air conditioning
Location: It's a bit of a walk to The Pier & on a busy road.
The room was clean & bed comfortable. It was hot, no air conditioning. Unfortunately we were put in the first room, closest to the office. It's a 24 hr check in & they don't let people checking in after hours to come into the office (even though there was a big security officer there). They make people 'yell' through the window, which kept us awake all night (after a 14 hour flight - suffering jetlag). Otherwise it's OK. The lady who managed the place was absolutely lovely!
