Good 6,0
Good stay but can be improved
Inconsistent water pressure in bathroom. Best to pack own towel and toiletries (i.e. toothbrush and paste, shampoo and body wash). No TV in room. Free WIFI provided. Location near to Jonker Street and local night market (less than 1 km - about 5 minutes walk).

Very good 8,0
Good stay for a few nights. You get what you pay.
Overall I could say I had pleasant stay for 2 nights. The location was good enough to town center. Staffs were friendly. The rooms locates 2 minutes away from the reception, which means they have a different building for rooms with 3 stories. They sell beers which are supposedly cheaper than any other places in the town.
