On the positive side, the staff were efficient, polite and friendly. If you like Indian sub-continent food, the independently run resturant is ok, the food being spicy but with too much sauce/gravy for my taste. The WiFi was ok. Less positively, there were only three (France 24, CNN and Al Jazeera) English language news channels. The hotel, probably for reasons of the owner's/manager's religious beliefs was teetotal; while this is not a problem, it should be advertised. Cleanliness was a challenge - I saw two small cockroaches so there were definitely many more and breeding. The area was characterised by very small shops, unpaved roads (so dusty) and noise. The bed was hard and the pillows lumpy.
