Be aware that this place is in a residential area - which means that taxis can have a difficult time finding it and your options are very limited. There are plenty of street food vendors in the nearby street and a small takeaway across the road. You can also buy simple rice dishes in the cafe on site, as well as water, soda and some snacks. The rooms are really big. Wifi in the rooms is also good and the TV has a lot of channels to watch. It is not as close to the airport as I expected; about 30 minutes in the morning traffic. Very little English was spoken so although the lady that checked me in was lovely and I thought I had arranged a taxi for the morning, the message must not have made sense. Luckily the owner was around at 7am the next day and could sense my anxiety and drove me to the airport himself. Otherwise I am not sure what I would have done as you can't just flag down a taxi here. The room is clean and comfortable and a good budget option for an overnight stay.
