It is very near to the shopping mall and eateries places. It is easily access to airport too.
The room maybe a bit small as we have 2 adults and 2 children. Once the extra bed is in, the room becomes quite cramp. If the hotel provide spa programs, that will be perfect.
Gaya Centre is a new hotel in operation only five months. It has an excellent location on the seaside with great ocean views on one side of the hotel and city on the other. There is a large new shopping mall cinema complex across the street still only partially occupied. The rest of the city is only a short walk away. Services are basic hotel services. The facilities are new therefore modern and in excellent condition.Free Internet in the room is on cable only but works very well. The oceanside promenade is across the street and provides easy access to markets of various kinds. The terminal for boats going to island parks and beaches is only a few blocks away. In general, everything you need is easily accessible.
There is very little negative to say about this hotel. They seemed to be having some problem with the room key cards that seemed to quit functioning each day so you had to get them reset and they didn't seem to be able to reset them for the duration of the stay - a minor annoyance. Front desk staff were very pleasant and worked hard to please but seemed at times to be uneasy with what they were doing, perhaps due to lack of experience with a still new system.
location in the heart of the city, clean room & functioning facilities
request for extra bed not fulfilled (staff forgot), wrong morning newspaper delivered despite reminder previous evening, reception staff was not helpful when I wanted to extend stay - asked to reapply online outside of hotel (time was 10.00 pm, nearest cybernet facility a kilometre away)
The hotel rate was value for money. room were cofortable clean and nice view of the surroundings.I will definitely stay there again
The back lane was poorly lit. scary for hotel guest walking on foot from nearby shoppings.
I connected internet cable to the port on the wall, but still could not get internet line...??
