We stayed here for 5 nights in November 2012 with another couple. We were very happy with this hotel, it is centrally located and within a stone's throw away from the market which is really the center of town. Restaurants are within walking distance, and there is a grocery nearby as well (best to ask directions from front desk).
Make sure you get a room in the main building, where the buffet breakfast is located and the pool as well. This saves you a trip across the street which is not pleasant given the hot weather. Rooms are adequately sized, clean, and the AC worked well. Bathroom is also clean and water pressure is strong. There are also good massage places available at low prices, and the service is given with a smile.
When going out, beware of tuktuk drivers who may lure you to go to stand-alone jewelry shops which are overpriced. If you're planning to shop for jewelry with semi-precious stones, the market is the best place to go. Ask for real 18k gold setting and compare quality, prices and designs before buying. Haggling is definitely a must, and try to knock off at least 40% especially if you're buying a lot.
Breakfast offering is basic but adequate, i especially liked the pickled radish on top of hot congee. My only complaint is the coffee which is better to miss, take tea instead.
Overall I have no complaints and the price you pay is definitely worth it.
