I stayed 2 weeks here, and was very happy with the sizable, clean & quiet room, firm bed, and nice desk clerks. You have to like to walk, as it is 10-12 minutes from the city wall. The neighborhood is historically working class, so it is not elegant but it is quite safe, and people will not stare at you if you are foreign--which they will do in the richer parts of town. There are 2 places nearby to buy very cheap produce, a Pam supermarket 4 blocks away, 2 shopping centers if you want to walk a bit more (ask the desk clerks), and an Internet Point accross the street. For an understated person like me who is not rich but likes comfort, it was ideal.
