I liked the deco in my room which made it homely and bright. The room was clean and I do not need to wear slippers around the room. However, the bathroom looked tired and in need of renovation.
The location was good too, 2 bus stop to the main bus station and 3 bus stop to the train station. There are 2 lakes right outside the inn. Within walking distance to 2 pedestrian street was good food and shops. Ask the staff for directions.
The staff was help to book the Li river cruise. He noticed that I can speak chinese and asked if I would like to join the chinese tour which was alot cheaper and still as good. The boss was friendly and had a good chat one evening.
