The hotel itself is pleasant although there is no A/C in the rooms. As a result you need to keep the windows open at night and then can't get away from the very loud music coming from the bar next door. Probably best to go elsewhere.

This Hotel is certainly worth the money if you want a...

Probably the best option if you travel the northern part of the country. It is a very basic hotel and really just offers a solid base to sleep and eat, but it seems to be consistent and reliable in its performance. Rooms are small but clean and quiet. Good water pressure and hit water available. Wifi works fine in room...

The shower is OK - the water pressure was really weak at the beginning but I was glad there was hot water, and it got better with time. I recommend...

I am staying here for 20 days; I have requested several changes to my room which the staff completed the first day. Every person here is willing to make adjustments - cooked greens at dinner and a movie channel in English. Security is excellent.
