This is quite a nice hotel. Good location just minutes walk to the night market and the city walls. Downside to this hotel is the noise! We could barely sleep as it is right next to a noisy road. I can usually sleep through anything but I struggled to sleep. This is however a very cheap hotel so I suppose... More

This Hotel is located 10 walking minutes from the Markets. I was lucky to be in the area for the Sunday Market. I was a bit skeptical about this hotel when I first booked it but the minute I arrived I felt at ease and knew I had made the right choice. As a solo female backpacker I could not... More

Stayed for a few nights in the small. As a whole had a really comfortable stay here. Rooms were a good size with really nice showers and bathrooms. The location is good and staff are really lovely. The pool was a disappointment - it is really really small which I feel the advertising pictures do not portray and our room... More

The hotel is situated on a very noisy boulevard, with an intense car and motorbikes trafic all day and night. The AC is so noisy you won't get any sleep. Forget the swimming pool,it is so small you'll have more fun in your shower. Breakfast is good and the hotel is quite clean. The staff is kind. But once again,... More

We loved this hotel for its amazing location, (about a 5-10 min walk to the old city). Very close to the night market & lots of pubs :). Tuk Tuk rides were cheap basically anywhere you wanted to go. The room was clean & were made up impeccably every day. The pool area was nice, but not big at all.... More
