You couldn’t ask for a better service from the staff they are friendly, very respectful and very well informed! ( Human Maps :) ) Steven, Laos, ( I hope I spelled the name right ) and Dudas Andre ( I think his name is Andre ) to name a few. Bus stops in front of the hotel which is a plus. I would definitely stay there again on my next visit.

8/10 Very good

Staff is very friendly. Easily accessible via public transportation. Although the property is in a good condition it is begging for some maintenance (e.g. a shower head flaky, etc.). The room was bit noisy by traffic even at night.
