good stay
Friendly staff, clean and quiet place. There is a bus stop right in front of the motel and the only one bus on the route goes to the bus exchange. From there you can take bus to airport or other places. Therefore it was very convenient for budget travellers like us. The room was clean and comfy and all basic amenities were there. I do not hesitate to recommend this place for travellers.
