The best thing about the hotel is the location although you may find it challenging going up the slope to the Grand Bazaar, etc and walking downhill to the Fish Restaurant is easier although on narrow side walks.
Service within the hotel is good for the price you pay. Staff do indeed try their best to serve but you still need to remember this is not a five star hotel so live with it! The restaurant at the roof top deserves a visit as it is pretty cool to be watching the sun set frmo the hotel. Staff at this restaurant deserves special mention as I felt they were above par.
