After searching for a long long time we finally zeroed in on La Marina Guest House.
For a budget friendly hotel this place is really neat and clean and the staff is very very helpful.
The rooms are neat and clean with clean beds and no cobwebs or chipping paint. The bathroom was clean too if obviously you don't expect a 5 star bath.
The hotel is very close to the Promenade and that is one of the main reasons we wanted to stay here. It's also walkable distance to all the good restaurants and cafes in an around the area.
The hotel has a ground floor and the 1st floor. The first floor has a verandah with cane couches and other garden furniture where a big group can easily chill.
The drawback is that the hotel does not have their own kitchen but are happy to get some nice tea and coffee from outside.
Overall we had a great experience at the hotel and it was really convenient for us to move around from there.
