The breakfast was excellent for non vegetarians. My mum is a pure vegetarian and the Madame handling breakfast- Mrs Cinchita (I guess that’s her name) was so so kind to get fresh veg noodles and stir fires vegetables specially made for my Mummy. And those too were very scrumptious.
There is a 7-11 supermarket bang opp. the hotel. There are a lot of street food and upbeat restaurant options nearby (3-4 mins walking distance). And one down the road, and another one around the corner. So lots of supermarkets around, you get the point.
There was less crowd around the time we visited and so the entire town was very calm and quite, along with the hotel.
The location was excellent. My mum and I did a free walking tour by following the BigBoys blog online, it is a 5- 6 hour walking tour around 22 sites in the Old Town. The hotel’s location was bang in the centre from all the sites, so we were able to take some frequent breaks back to the hotel (mum needed those).
The hotel did have airport taxi services but it was a bit expensive so we took grab cab back to the airport.
The hotel staff stored our luggage for a couple of hours.
Overall, our experience was superb, mainly because the staff was very kind and helpful.

I have traveled quite a bit and know enough to cook my own food while doing it.
Having the kitchen is a big deal for me…the apartment was very comfortable and quite close to an organic grocery store via scooter.
The staff was extremely friendly!…and the room rate was shockingly low.
Location: Not great, there’s not much around you and you have to taxi to everything, but they do have a mini mart by the street which came in really good handy for snacks and drinks.
Breakfast: I believe breakfast was included with the room. I wasn’t a big fan of it though, its set up on tables outside between a restaurant and the hotel, most of the food was uncovered and had flies on it. I tried it twice and ended up going to the mini mart for small breakfast items.
Front desk: I’ve never written about the people at the front desk before but I can’t say enough good things about them! They were very nice, and super helpful at explaining GrabTaxi and even helped me print a paper during my stay.
Overall: I wasn’t a huge fan of the location, breakfast, and the sewer smell in the kitchen was bad, but their rooms are nice, their staff is great, and the mini mart is a good alternative to breakfast if needed. I would likely stay here again but not sure if i could recommend it to someone that wants to stay near town.
