A good value with clean and modern albeit simple rooms with strong AC just across canal from the old city. Really saved me when I stayed during the July 2015 heat wave (35C+) and needed an affordable hotel with AC. Staff overall were very friendly and went out of their way when I needed help, including to make a few... More

We stayed there for one night with family and friends. Room average, service poor. No hot water in the evening. Woman at the desk complained of the trash we supposedly left in the lobby. Only good thing was the location next to the center of the city.
