The hotel is located right near the main bus station, and is an easy 15 minute walk into town. You will have to get a taxi back from town though as it is uphill, and the altitude makes it a difficult walk. A lot of the rooms are up several flights of stairs, so it can be a tiring experience, coming and going, but the hotel makes up for it in value for money, friendly staff, cleanliness and the nice restaurant downstairs. Rooms are simple but large, and we had no problems with the hot water, or the WiFi. Halfway between a hotel and a hostel, really, so you can choose between shared and private bathrooms.
