The Hotel is fine but a bit too pricy for what they offer. Breakfast was included in the stay and included hot beverages which is a plus. Note that there is no heating or cooling in the rooms, basically whatever temperature is outside, that's the temperature. Hot water is available 24 hours a day but electricity runs in 6 hr shifts and varies everyday of the week. There is a generator that powers lights when the electricity is out but the hotel only runs it when it is dark out and the power outlets will not work during this time. You can ask them to turn the generator on in certain instances but they will only turn it on for a short period of time.
