Great place to stay, value for money, room service was great always ready to help out! Would deffinitley go back their, wasn't really expecting it to be great due to the price we paid but not I was wrong. Recommended for people with a budget or looking for something different.

Very good location, a lively part of the city in the evening! In the middle of the Indian Bazaar! Everything fake, the shop owners brag with their good replicas!:)) Very close to the metro station! 10 minute walk through the Bazaar!
