"I am told that the rooms are variable. Ours was on the small side but comfortable."
"the superior rooms on the second floor are the best."
"rude staff with noise pollution early morning"
"Good point: We stayed in a deluxe room. They were also called superior rooms. These rooms are large with two double beds and a roomy bathroom. I don't know what the other rooms are like."
"Newer section is nicer,as far away from the water pump by the courtyard stairs"
US$59 - US$122 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
