Great location, although finding it while the market is open isn't easy. We were in room 19, on the top- third - floor. Huge room. If you book a double, expect two single beds that don't quite stay together. Great bathroom, although keep the lid down on the loo and the door closed a it can get a bit smelly! Fab shower.
There is a skylight in the room, and while there is a cover over it, expect to wake at around 4am as it starts to get light. There are two lights in the room, but you can only control them from the switch by the door...
Also in room 19, there appears to be either a heating unit or aircon unit for other rooms in the roof above. Or a water tank that constantly fills. Either way its a long sleepless night when it wakes you at 01:50 and doesn't go off for the rest of the night.
There's a big well equipped kitchen and a sitting/ eating area, free wifi, though this was spotty in 19.
I'd love to give this a higher rating, but would definitely try somewhere else before coming back.
