Located in the town center, it's near pretty much everything from the church, van/bus terminal, tricycle terminal, pasalubong center and Catanduanes Museum. Staff were very helpful. WiFi is only free when you go to the restuarant on the top floor or common areas.

And although i like the location, i don't like the noise and the poor wifi connection. But, if you are a backpacker and would want a stay for the night, then this could good for you.

The hotel is located 50 meters away from the center of the municipality. Been staying here for business travels since 2005. It's a basic and comfortable hotel for its location. Also good for backpacking.
