A double room with en-suite bathroom for US$10. What more can you ask for?
In fact, Rose Hotel was our life-saver. We did not pick this hotel initially but got dropped off here. The hotel of our choice, which is about 200 metres away, refused us a room citing that they are full. The place was completely empty as far as we could tell. The management at Rose Hotel explained to us that some hotels may not want to offer rooms to foreigners to avoid hassles by police due to security reasons.
Now for US$10, the expectation of the quality of the room has to match. It is a good budget hotel. The room was very spacious with comfortable bed. But, the carpet was grubby and there was no toilet seat for the toilet. But hey, at least it is a western toilet and we can do this for one night.
We were offered a room on the 4th floor as we were concern about the noise outside. Take note, there was no elevator. Inside the hotel, you have the sense of security and liveliness. We kept bumping into friendly staff and the food they deliver looked yummy.
The hotel sits at a busy cross road junction and about 300 metres from the old city proper.More
