This being the first time I had travelled solo, I was a little apprehensive about being alone in a big city. I wasn't sure what to expect on the drive in through the city and was wondering if we'd taken the wrong turn when we went down a very narrow side street! Then all of a sudden another sharp turn and there was what I would call a beautiful oasis in middle of all the chaos outside, and it was like that for the rest of my trip. It's a small family run hotel, with beautiful gardens, lovely spacious bedrooms with a great bathroom. The only thing missing is having menu's in the room to order room service rather than having to go to the restaurant.
The hotel is ideal for those wishing to explore the city as it's so close to everything but yet once in the hotel you feel you're out in the suburbs. The night market is literally at 10mins walk away and there's some really nice restaurants as well close by.
The staff were very attentive but also discreet enough at the same time to know when you wanted to be left alone. It's the small touches that make a holiday; a cool drink by the pool, books to browse on local culture and things to do. I can honestly say I never felt lonely or uncomfortable. Nothing was too much trouble.
I came away from the Purinunn refreshed, calm and ready to face the world again!
My only regret? Didn't do enough shopping, but that's hardly the hotel's fault. The tuk tuk was always available when I went to use it! I can't wait to go back again!
