We had a large internal room but was poorly ventilated. A real drawback. The floor was wooden and very noisy, The breakfast was very good. The staff were helpful. It was only a few blocks to the town centre and the many tourist sites.

How close is it to the bus station? I’m arriving from Alauisa. A walk or a taxi?

"Keep away from the main road."
"Para los que buscan silencio, las habitaciones que estan en segundo piso son las mejores."
"Stay away from inside airless rooms on first floor."
"I liked the 1.floor room facing the road, if you dont mind a bit of noise."
"Ask for a room with a terrace with a view to main street."
$35 - $50 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
