    Comfortable and clean hotel, but noisy

    Hotel was clean, bed was comfortable. Shower was great with good water pressure. Location is fantastic. My only complaint is that the walls are so thin, you can hear the people’s conversation next door. Our neighbors had their TV on all night and we had to knock on the door. It felt like it was in our room. Other than that, great find.

    Good hotel value for money

    Value for money! The hotel is comfortable and has everything you need. The only downside was that the towels looked dirty.

    The property is old and not in the best condition. They gave us one room with the air conditioning not working and the water came out from the shower, it was dirty. Fortunately they change us the room for a better one, but still it had things old and the water came out from the shower.

    Great location, nothing fancy, beds were small but comfortable and they have a restaurant in front that had good food and drinks. If you are looking for a fancy honeymoon spot, keep looking. The place was affordable.
