If you are familiar with hotels in developing countries and are looking for a simple, clean and cheap place to stay, this was not bad. If you've never been to a developing country before, I would recommend looking for a hotel in a more touristy part of town. There are not many good restaurants nearby. Most of the people around this area were definitely locals, so if you're an out of towner, you'll feel more out of place. There really wasn't anywhere that you could walk to in general. We usually took a taxi out to find a restaurant for lunch and dinner. The breakfast was included with our stay and I was very happy with mine! I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights.
The good: great A/C, hot water in the showers, comfortable beds, clear rooms and a restaurant attached to the hotel that is open 'til late into the night, good housekeeping staff
The bad: broken window locks (in 2 rooms that I stayed in), door jambs that extended far enough to hit your knuckle, loud A/C that turned on and off through the night
Some things to note: The majority of staff that we encountered in the hotel and the restaurant did not speak much English. The door locks work, but they seemed like they would be easy to break into. However, I did leave my things in the room along with several others in my party, and nothing was stolen. The housekeeping staff, in my opinion, did a great job keeping the room neat and were nice.
