We move here from another hotel for better quality and quieter accomodations and were very satisfied. The ground floor rooms have thick walls and with the surrounding garden, our room stayed quiet at night despite that the town fair was in progress during our stay with the required firing of mortars and speaker stack competitions. Additionally the two security guard dogs, Jimmy and Lida, were always willing to play keep away and fetch during the daylight hours. The rest of management did not speak english but we had no difficulties with our stay and believe the 24 dollars a night on credit card to be a good value. We stayed eight nights in part because we acquired a local stomach bug which way laid us for a couple of days.
No air conditioner, large fan was adequate. Shower and hot water were above average but needed more soap dishes. Room was cleaned promptly and completely every morning. The TV was small and the channels seemed to come and go with each power outage. Double room had a double bed and a twin, a nice lamp table in between , a place with hangers to hang clothes but still a bit short on luggage rack space.
Breakfast was extra but it was convenient and pleasant. Hammock in garden, highly recommended.
