People said it's the best in Jinka, but . . . Basic, tired looking place. Bed with netting. No fan (it gets hot inside the room) or fridge. Hot shower requires 30 min heating. Street noise evident with loudspeakers blaring music or someone speaking, then chanting from arrival time around 5 pm till midnight. Started again at 4 am the...

Electricity cut in the evening and came back on around 6.30am. Bathrooms were in poor condition and I couldn’t get the hot water to work. We moved from the first room which had a toilet that wouldn't stop running - so check the bathroom before you commit to a room. There were mosquito nets in the room. Breakfast was fresh...

The best place to stay in Jinka, yet don't expect too much. Close to the main road. Large rooms with shower with hot water and clean towel and bed. No need for more. Good was fair. No air condition nor ventilator makes it a little hot place during hot days. Yet, it is the best in Jinka.

Room was clean, toilet flushing was broken, so we had to flush by bucket. Hot water was instability. Restaurant was ok quality. However, compared with another accommodation in Jinka, this hotel would be much better.

Basic rooms. Remember to take a torch as you will need it in the evening as there probably will be no electricity. That said, the food was fine but ask what they have rather than order from the menu as there was no chicken when we were there. The tibs were good.

We were given really bad rooms, but after complain to management we were changed to more decent ones. The room was weird in size and furniture but it had a comfortable bed with mosquito net and the shower worked properly which is at the end of the day what you need. The place is nice and rooms are located in...

“Avoid rooms on the right when you get in the complex. They are the smallest . Go for those in the gardens”

“Rooms out the back are the quietest and are quite large. They have doubles beds rather than the singles available at the front, which is definitely preferred when using a mosquito net that you don't want to get tangled up in.”
