Any shortcoming in the hotel's accomodation is more than made up by the superb staff - everyone encountered here from the manager on down was extremely friendly, helpful and genuinely concerned for their guests. Really going beyond all of my expectations.
They provided transportation to and from the bus station (also available for airport) - and the driver they use is also extremely friendly and helpful - with suggestions on places to eat, local cuisine, and more. He also is making effort to learn more English.
There were no serious issues with the room - but I would have appreciated a better shower head - the one they used produced less than satisfactory flow (there are low-flow showerheads that would be much more satisfying than the old thing they have here - at least in our room).
The location is very good, and would stay here again and definitely recommend this hotel!
The people here are truly 5-star.
