False advertising: no WiFi
Pros: Quiet area, clean, firm bed, has kitchen, dining room, living room, has all necessary utensils and dishware, shower drains well, two strong AC units, friendly manager. Cons: No WiFi, bathroom a bit old, some ants, slightly lumpy bed, initially no hot water, not walking distance to downtown, loud AC units. False advertising about free WiFi. There is no internet connection at all at the hotel. Also, airport transfer is $20 each way, not the list roundtrip. I was looking for the cheapest place with free wifi and own bathroom. Even though there were no reviews, I was traveling alone and have a pretty big tolerance so I took a chance and booked it. Arranged airport pickup via Expedia messages. The manager Merling was at the airport to greet me with her driver. Once at the hotel, I found out no internet. She offered to help me setup a sim card for data/wifi hotspots if I got one from town. I declined. There was no hot water the first night, I left a note about it. It was not fixed when I returned the second night, I was too tired so took another cold shower, at least Palau is hot. Called the manager the next morning and people come over immediately to fix it, they needed to reset the breaker and that fixed the heater. There are ants here and there, sometimes they get on the bed. No big deal for me. Bathroom is clean but old. Rust stains, some calcium build up. Kitchen appliances are new or fairly new. Carry umbrella if walking outside, and flashlight at night.
Gut: Quiet area, clean, firm bed, has kitchen, dining room, living room, has all necessary utensils and dishware, shower drains well, two strong AC units,
Nicht so gut: Get WiFi internet or don't say you have it. Replace bathroom fixtures. Make sure everything's in working order including hot water before guest arrive
Lage: Downtown probably 45 min walk. There are nearby restaurants with free wifi. Carry a flashlight if walking at night. Scattered showers.
