Ok so there are much better equipped hotels. However this hotel is 1 minute walk from centre of town with shops, bars and restaurants. Hotel sits back from the street, and is surprisingly quiet. Lovely garden too. I ate breakfast and evening meals here twice and they were both very tasty and service was fine. Internet wifi connection was free to guests. Service by reception staff was very good. Good quality bottled water available in the hotel at good prices. Bedrooms are simple, but clean. Mattress was hard but I am fine with this. Ensuite shower and toilet, again simple. Electricity blackout occur most days and hotel doesn't utilise a backup generator for guests, so often in bedrooms at night only 1 small light would be available until later in the evening when all back to normal.
Summary - good location, safe, and clean. Simple rooms, friendly staff, nice gardens and food.
Would I return again? Yes, although knowing there 5 star hotels and taxis freely available I would consider going there. Price dependant and what I was going to be doing.
