We booked this hotel because of the excellent revieuw in the Lonely Planet. The last edition of the LP dates from 2004 and since than many things have changed.
People in the hotel are very friendly but the hotel is not clean at all. The bed linen from previous guessts were not changed....
Breakfeast is very poor. The situation is very good, this area is full of hotels.
The hotel is noth worth the 55 USD., we saw better places for less money!
