The staff were pleasant, the rooms were spacious although they need some serious renovating. We had some issues with little cockroaches but I think that comes with the territory. The breakfast was okay for a 2-3 star hotel.

This hotel has a good restaurant and good choice of food. But if you make too many orders, they forget to bring some items. So you need to order one or two items and order next item after you get the first one, which is annoying.
