“Go with the air conditioned room unless you're used to the heat. Breakfast was good. Loved the balcony and the covered area out front. It was great for relaxing after a day at the temples.”

“We had a ground floor overlooking the entrance and it was not noisy at all. Book the hotel pick up if you are worried about getting lost.”
