If you don't mind being outside of the center (you'll anyway need a vehicle to move around the city), this is a great place to stay. The city is really busy anyway so it feels good to get back to this hidden oasis at the end of the day. We didn't mind being slightly outside.
The service is really excellent, the rooms very nice and clean. Food is very good but a little bit too pricey. The only other restaurant in the area (5 minutes walk) is also good and much cheaper, worth the walk along the creepy road. Unfortunately you won't have much other choices unless you're willing to go for a 10-15 minutes ride to the center.
The hotel has been built on/in the middle of rice fields, hence there is a lot of mosquitos at night. The staff is doing everything that is humanly possible to fight against mosquitos but that is a fight you can never really win.. Nevertheless they did a great job and it didn't disturb too much. Evening at the restaurant were lovely.
The hotel is being expanded but the construction is happening during the day, when everybody is out in town so it wasn't a problem at all. It looked nearly finished: it should be ready within the next 2-3 months.
Wifi was working well but very slow depending the time of the day, like everywhere else in the country.
We would definitely stay there again.
