Stayed here for two nights. As others have commented the hotel is very central next to the bus station, and with a number of expat hangouts (which are always great to get info on the city: Fuzzy Ken's is particularly recommended) in close proximity (5 min. walk or so). There are convenience stores, bars, markets and various other shops nearby.
Tiffany the owner is very friendly and speaks fluent English as others have also mentioned. Due to the lighthearted theme (cartoon characters) and bright colours used the place has a very fresh appeal.
My room was clean, of average size and had a comfortable bed, good aircon, small bar fridge, large traditional TV with more than 70 channels including a number of English language ones (BBC World News and others) and European as well as Asian channels. A cupboard for hanging clothes (with a shelf in it too), a low coffee table with two funky chairs, and two bedside tables complete the picture.
Bathroom was equally clean and has hot shower which worked well.
All rooms on the "A" floor (first floor) now have free wifi internet, and in my room it was of good quality (5 bars out of 5, and of good speed with no outages).
The road-side rooms get noise from the street (buses starting up fairly early in the morning, and mopeds/motorbikes/tuktuks during the night) so if you are a light sleeper perhaps best to request a room away from the street (it appears that half the rooms on each floor face the street, the other half the back of the hotel).
There is no working desk in the room which made it not practical for me to stay long-term as I need this to work, but overall my stay was a good experience and if you don't need a desk it is definitely recommended!
