It was ok. But for the budget I paid, it is more than enough. It has potential to be one of the best budget hotels, but need a big improvement. Owner was friendly. Had a nice stay. Hope to come again.

The towel provided is dirty, we do not dare to use at all. There is no hair dryer provided too. Location consider good,...
