Free wifi Rooms small, but the rates are cheap. Clean bathrooms, although the shower could have been better. Very helpful staff. Good central location in town, but still only 5-10 mins from airport. Lounge - public area, with street front balcony. Kitchen available. Surprisingly quiet considering there's a main road outside. Ask for a back room (e.g. one named "MONTE... More

I rate this 4 stars based off of the price paid and the value. If you need a place to stay a day or two before you fly out, this is a great stop. Excellent location as you can walk to anywhere in town and you have 2 great parks to hang out in. We tried booking online (I think... More

We needed a place to sleep/stay for literally 7 hours. Arrived at the airport after midnight, and sure enough, they were ready to receive us upon arrival (sigh of relief). It was clean enough. Breakfast was good. A piece of the roof, however, right above our heads was blowing and banging in the wind of the storm early in the... More

It was $40 a night for a double with a private bath, so we didn't expect much. It was clean & comfortable, & most of the time the fan was adequate, in spite of the heat & humidity. Most of the people (notably the owners) were very friendly & helpful. We also felt safe here.

We booked this hotel for one night as we had an early flight the next morning. Staff was unbelievable friendly and very helpful!! The rooms are nice and clean, 24 hour reception. Absolutely worth the money for what you get, I think. Distance to Airport; 5 minutes by Taxi.

The staff is very friendly and professional. The room with bathroom was easy, small, but tidy and clean, breakfast included. The price is absolutely fair. I would definitely stay again in this hotel for a future 1night stay.
