The facade of the hotel is very nice. And the location is superb, bang in the middle of the central market. The check-in personnel are very efficient. I had tamil colleagues, so conversation was not a problem. The hotel is clean and rooms are very good given the reasonable prices. The bathroom faucets though are rusty showing some age. However they were all in working condition. There is separate enclosure for car parking and washing. the beach is around two kilometres and the straight route is through markets and one-way roads, so the actual distance may be more.
