Good location. Friendly staff.
Great location. Very helpful staff. I stayed in a double room. The room was okay. The location is great. Close to restaurants and night market. Breakfast was not very good but you get what you pay for. I enjoyed the stay because the staff were friendly. You have to go upstairs to get to the reception.Then further up to your room.
