It is situated on a very busy road however we could not hear the bustle around our rooms. The staff was very friendly and made us feel right at home. The food -... More

The room was basic but clean and big. Mosquito nets were provided. The air con was not very efficient, but we did find that it cooled the room down compared to outside. The bathroom is big and has hot water. Breakfast and dinner are good here, and staff are friendly and helpful. Would recommend to others if they are looking... More
