Really friendly staff and a quaint hotel with a simple clean place to have a drink in the lobby. Alley is quiet even though it's in there center of it all.

8/10 Very good

Great for one night.
Stayed here for one night because the location was excellent for catching our bus to Cambodia the next morning. Location is great if you like the night life or if like us need to catch an early bus. Breakfast was basic choice of eggs and toast or fruit and yogurt. Service at the front desk friendly. Bed was hard as a rock and the halls can echo and can be noisy at night.
