Hotel is quite nice and clean. The breakfast is very well stocked and delicious and their bar has pretty decent prices (for the area) making it a great place to have a beer and a burger after a long day of exploring or hiking.More

You get a telephone number for the taxis from everywhere. Small cars and maxis. :) Enjoy that place with its strangely quiet atmosphere.
