The best part of this hotel stay was the host, Ken, who was always on hand to share local knowledge and provide recommendations for ways to spend time in his city. I had a problem with a dodgy money change deal and Ken kindly accompanied me back to the office the following day to translate and intervene on my behalf. This hotel is a work in progress, being renovated currently. It's a little out of town but there's a new skyway station literally at the doorstep, so an easy commute. The hotel rooms are basic but clean, with hot shower and 100% reliable free wifi in the room. Try to get a room further back in the hotel, because the ones on the main road are noisy. Overall, good value and guests are made to feel very "at home". If you stay less than 3 nts and are not entitled to the free hotel transfer, you can arrange with Ken to collect you at the airport for a moderate charge only.
