Arrived late in the night on a Sunday. The place is located in a quiet residential area. Expect a fairly long commute from the airport to the hotel. The traffic can be very bad.
The good - the setting is actually quite nice, the area is quiet, and the staff is friendly. The transportation they connect you with, Lazarus, is very accommodating and very nice.
The bad - the place needs a lot of maintenance and renovation. Appears to not have been well maintained. My mosquito net had a ton of holes in it. Everything is fairly old.
The ugly - the bathroom comes with a suicide shower (an electric in line water heater attached to the shower head). Mine actually arced current while I was showering. Also, it only had one setting . That setting was burning hot.
The place could be wonderful, but in its current state it is average at best.
