While this hotel doesn't come with the frills one might be used to when staying at more 'established' locations, they've covered the bases for what a person might need. And at their prices, this hotel option is quiet, clean, and comfortable. The staff were also really quite delightful, and were friendly during every interaction I had with them.

Clean and compact hotel that’s fairly new, but there were many issues with my room: •Toilet bowl was faulty on the first night and the following night the air-con broke down – changed rooms as a result • WiFi was spotty and weak – used my phone data for the bulk of the time • Be reminded that you need to place a tag on your door for room service. No one communicated that to me (until Day 4 after multiple times of feedback given) so my room was left as is for days. Tips: • They don’t serve hand soap, but you could use the body soap provided in the shower as a substitute. • There are no facial tissues, so toilet paper is your alternative.
