    I love this place with a character. Room is big and clean. Staff are friendly and you can exchange money at the desk. There's a small restaurant nearby which serves typical dishes and a small gift shop. I totally recommend this hotel.

    I don't know if it is available for the dates you need, but I had room #6 when I was there. It has two large beds. I believe that it came to $71 US taxes in per night. Great room, very clean.
