I tried to like this hotel, I really did, but gosh it was hard and I'm not really sure why. It is set up for Asian travellers - the hotel was full of Korean, Japanese and Indonesian tours while we were there. We took a taxi from the train station and it was $230. Its not in the heart of things and the hotel has a very run down feel. Most of the furniture is literally from the 70's. The room was spotless but very tired. Think of a clean but old fashioned Youth hostel and you wont go far wrong . It had no double glazing so the road noise was very loud and very thin curtains so it was never dark. The airconditioning is effective but has a very strange sulpherous smell about it.
They don't respond to any emails in English and there is very limited English spoken in the hotel. There are no cots in the hotel but there are highchairs in the resturant. You are given vouchers everyday for breakfast. I would say dont bother with it. The only Western food is bread and coffee (unless you count the chicken nuggets and chips from the night before) and the Asian food didnt look that hot either. They have 2 restaurants but based on the breakfast we decided not to risk it. There's not many restaurants in the surrounding area. A word of warning the map they supply is not to scale so dont trust it to get you to places. The staff were very kind and there was bottled water in the rooms everyday but I'm sure you could do better for the money (especially as they charge you full price for a baby in the room).
