At the unbelievable price of just about US$9 a day, you would expect the elevator to be out of order, the maid service to be very occasional, the aircon to be choppy and the people to be gruff. SURPRISE! None of that is true about this nice little ordinary-looking hotel. Maid service prompt and great, no prob w. aircon, people gracious and all else in good working order. Spent 5 or 6 days there. Very convenient to the center of town.
The people don't speak much English, so should you be in the habit of doing dramatic readings from your set of the Great Books in the evening, do so in your room.
