After staying one night in the center of Nebaj, we found the Boxbolandia on the main highway on the north edge of the town (1.3 km from main square). The hotel is built on a hill overlooking a creek and it has a tall white wall separating it from the highway that provides both security and quietness. The entrance is through a locked metal gate that makes the place look like it is closed, but a few knocks brings a staff member to open it for you. There is ample parking inside the grounds for vehicles. While the tuktuk taxis regularly run up and down the highway into town, the hotel is not that convenient for travelers without their own transportation.
Our very spacious room had a balcony with a view. The bathroom was clean and the water hot. Given the cool temperatures of Nebaj, it was a pleasure to have a hot shower with ample water pressure. The restaurant is built in a series of terraces and we enjoyed excellent food and service with free wifi. Below the hotel is a swimming pool, children's play area and gardens. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rate for a double room with two beds was about $40 US. Well worth it.
