5 out of 5

Easy access to everything

Pros: Big rooms
Cons: Hotel menu is not the best, better to buy in other restaurants around
Location: Great location
Great location, most of the staff helpful however issues with housekeeping staff, either they have forgotten to put things in the room after cleaning or they will do things when you ask them not to do, e.g. putting mosquito net down. I think somehow language barrier could be a possibility.
