Hotel Ramakrishna is a nice hotel. Very neat and clean hotel. Room service is average. Wi-fi is available. This hotel is very close to the beach (Just 10 minutes walk). Many food spots and shops are nearby. Value for money spent.

The rooms for look like the pictures but are fine and the aircon and wifi works. Adon and Moses were so helpful. Adon teaches the yoga as well and I thought he was very professional yoga teacher - yoga life yoga studio. It's a great location also, close to all the sites and restaurants.

Upon arrival, we were shown room 205 which was a standard ac room. There was a weird old funky smell to the room which also... More
