Had a great stay at Focal Local, Karan the manager couldn't have been more helpful and seemed to be there all the time! Breakfast is brilliant too and serves as much as you can eat, presented to something you would expect at a high end hotel.
If we were being uber critical the location maybe isn't perfect but they do supply 1 free tuk tuk each day to the nearby metro station (although the walk there is rather nice anyway) or the boat station. Also - we did have a mini issue with the cab to the bus station, nothing major but as Karan wasn't there (it was someone else from the hotel) we left the communication wasn't as good as it could have been, just make sure that the cabbie is fully briefed before you drive away from the hotel.
Our room (Sea Breeze) was comfortable, albeit a touch small when all our luggage was in, but they do have a wardrobe, safety deposit box, shampoo etc so it's not really a big issue. It was on the front of the hotel so can get a touch noisy but nothing too bad as you are tucked away a side street away from main traffic.
Peaceful, relaxing and well looked after it's what you need when in the city and perfect for a couple, maybe not suited if you want to be slap bang in the middle of things though.
Get a room on the 1st floor (not ground floor) - and if possible at the back of the hotel (not sure...
