Hotel Sansu provides comfortable, airy and well-lit rooms with clean washrooms. The food in their resaurant is delicious! Prawns curry and rice is a must try as is the Kottu! Warm, friendly and helpful people in the hotel provide prompt service. Nothing lavish but if you are looking for a basic comfortable stay within a modest budget, this is the...

It has everything that fulfils your basic needs: Clean rooms, helpful staff, good food, hot water in the bathroom, TV. Stayed here for one night. A tuk tuk or bus is essential to go to the main city centre. Not very close to it.

This may not be the best stay you'd enjoy for your lifetime. But if you are limited by your budget, this is a place that will offer enough for the price you pay. Rooms need repainting though. But being solo, I didn't care. Bathrooms, AC, hotwater, food was OK. I think I had enough for what I could spend.

Reviewed 20 January 2015 via mobile

The hotel presents itself as advertised as a budget hotel upon arrival into the lobby. Our room on the 4th floor was abysmal. AC didn't work, roaches in the bathroom, bedding smelt moldy, and towels looked like they hadn't been washed. Staff were attentive and responded immediately to our phone call of AC not working but were unsuccessful in fixing...
