I spent the night of Dec 15 in a room on the second floor and think it was great for what it is- a basic, budget hotel room in a convenient location. My room was clean, the a/c worked great, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and was tasty and served very quickly. The bathroom appeared to have been very recently and nicely renovated. I didn't use the pool but it looked clean and maintained.
It is just around the corner from the bus station so is great for people travelling by bus. The location is a bit noisy as would be any "convenient" location but it didn't keep me awake.
