Staff really friendly on the front desk. Very clean and great location. But the heat in the room was horrible. As they don't have air conditioning (they use an air cooling system) we had to get a fan from downstairs but it didn't make a difference. It made it very difficult to sleep and we lodged a complaint (I've never taken the time to complain about a hotel before).
A real shame as otherwise it would have been great - prices of drinks really reasonable, and rooms quite spacious for a budget hotel.
It might have been that we were given the top floor, so I suggest if you do book, ask for a lower ground floor in case it was because of the heat rising to the top.
