So I was looking for cheap accommodations near the airport that had free pick up and drop off at the airport. Basically a cheap place to sleep. I didn’t want to get a taxi so late at night into the city. I found a really good deal at booking.com for this hotel and with relatively good reviews. On arrival, I went near exit number 4 on the second floor and asked about The Phoenix hotel among these.
I was told to wait about 20 minutes which was okay since I think they go by the hour or something like that. After 20 minutes, I was led outside to a van. I thought it was just me but there was another mother and daughter guests who rode the van with me which was a comfort. The hotel was located maybe 10-15 minutes away at a residential place. It passed by some scary streets. Haha.
At check-in, I had to pay for my accommodation which was really cheap. It was around $20 for the night. I guess I get what I pay for. I think the good reviews are for their deluxe rooms which naturally you have to pay more for.
This was my room. I’m glad that it’s on the first floor but It was a room within another room. It was weird. The room smelled a bit musky like it didn’t get a lot of ventilation. It was relatively clean. I mean I won’t stay here again but for the night I guess it was good enough.
At least there was some hot water. Haha. I give this hotel 4 or 5 out of 10 stars instead of the 7 or 8 I read on the reviews. I would not go back here again. I think there are better options available.
