If you want to walk from airport for overnight and want to end trip positive note and can pay about $137 total than stay here.
If you arrive at night you can see the lit up hotel from the plane. You have to walk up about 10 steep steps, then cross a street, then 10 more steep steps, then cross the streetthen about 1/2 block on a paved road with gravel rocks off to the side. Then enter hotel on left then about 15 more steep steps then you reach reception. We did it with a duffle bag, 2 backpacks and a suitcase with wheels. At airport right behind the building where the ladies sell necklaces is a place where you can pay to check your bags if you want to just take an overnight bag up the hill. Also, right there is the the white painted steps that you take to reach the hotel. There will be a sign at the base of the paved road. You will also see the bus stop at the top of the first set of stairs. Here we encountered a local who appeared to be set up for the night. He had a prime spot for trying to sell drugs, I suppose. He kept trying to get us to talk to him but he never got out of his seat and I never felt in any danger. Also, when a couple got off the bus and headed toward the hotel a boy on a bike followed them and again, probably drugs. Ignore them and they don't bother you. NOTE: THEY DO NOT TURN ON THE AC until you actually check in. It took over an hour for the room to feel cool. The refigerator is also turned off. The bed was very comfortable and the 4 pillows were really, really quality pillows. Try calling hotel as soon as you land and asking receptionist to go to your room and turn on AC and that you will be right over.
Also, look for loose luggage carts to use to roll your bags through parking lot. Also, hotel does not have elevator so ask for first floor which still may require a few steps. We did not hear jets in the middle of the night and we were not awakened by the sound of roosters. The windows appeared to be thick enough to muffle noise.
