I only stayed here one night as I had tried out another accommodation as well. Pros: large room that is decorated nicely and very clean, en suite bathroom with extra large shower (with ledge and this makes a difference for anyone who doesn't love wet floors), high speed ceiling fan and ac (though I could not get my air conditioning to work), small TV and fridge in room - great for storing water or drinks - though would have been nice to be provided 1-2 waters in the fridge, overall good location just outside of the bustle of town - about 5-10 min walk from gardens, helpful staff, i.e. when giving directions to pharmacy and recommending time to be in the hotel by (10pm as single female traveler). Cons: difficult to find contact info for booking (google the hotel and you'll find a blog with contact details). I also had wanted to purchase the hand held fan in the room as I was departing and was frustrated that the night manager wanted to sell it for $5USD when an expensive one in town was $3. Simply left me with a negative feeling as I felt this was blatant gouging. Room was an excellent value at $50USD.
