I stayed in one of the Garden Rooms at the back. The Garden is a nice little change when your traveling for extended periods of time in budget guesthouses.
The room was clean with good air con and breakfast was served on time everyday when i asked.
I would have to say the friendliness and the service from the hotel staff is the best part about this hotel. always smiling and helpful, the receptionist especially, always helping out with information and tours. I booked a tour to the underground river but it ended up canceled because of the weather so they managed to book another tour out to Honda bay for me on the day and refund some of the costs.
they also upgraded my breakfast on the last couple of days for free i think because of the cancelation of the tour, which wasn't even their fault.
The location is alright, its only a 8 Peso tricycle ride into the centre of town. 15 Peso to Robinsons shopping mall and you can organise any tours at the hotel..
the only thing i did not like was the Garden area doesn't get Wifi, only the main building, so if you need wifi access, ask to stay there.
I would stay again here for sure...
