Got the stay at Gimanhala from Agoda. The price was alright but I would not say it is all that cheap for the quality of the hotel. The rooms are clean but are quite old. The toilet in the room where we stayed didn't work all that well. There were ants in the toilet area. But overall, its comfortable.
Location wise, its right in the middle of the town area. Nothing much to see or eat at. But if you need to get some essentials, there are several shops along the main road from the hotel.
The ala carte food served at the cafe was quite nice except for the morning buffets.
