Stayed here few nights and there's nothing too bad or good to say. Basic budget option with excellent location. Rooms are quiet, pool area nicer than average. Restaurant wasn't open, so nothing more to say about that. I wouldn't stay more than few nights.

Hopefully no one reading these reviews will book a night in this hotel, we also checked-in after desperately looking for a place to sleep, without reading their tripadvisor, foolishly. The day after we checked in, $140 worth of IDR, USD, THB, HUF disappeared from our locked room, with the key in our pocket. We counted the money in the morning,... More

I had good experience in this hotel before, a couple years ago. But now everything is different. I know it's a kind of budget hotel and i don't expect too much. But basic service and cleanliness is what I expect. It was night when I arrived and I was to tired to complaint and asked another room. Since the air... More

Pool is great, rooms are run down and the management have no idea, staff stealing from rooms and just terribly run. I wouldn't stay here unless ur desperate, good location. They need an expat to run the place. Needs big changes to stay open. This is why the rooms are very cheap. Many better place to stay rather than here.

It's very safe and there were nights guards watching our rented scooter. Only negative thing is it's down an alley off the main road, i'm a girl... More

I stayed here for one night. The room itself was very dark and both of the lamps by the bed didn't work. The walls were filthy and the room smelt very bad. The sheets were also dirty, as were the towels. There was hardly any other guests staying in the place which was strange because it's a big place. When... More
