Good room in a nice area
Large room for two people. Not downtown, but walkable to most spots.

Budget guest house, good deal for families
This is a good budget guest house for the area, especially if you are a family and can get one of the rooms that can accommodate your whole family. The service was good and the breakfast was ok (cereal, yogurt, toast, tea, coffee). However, the lower level that I was staying in was outdated, I didn't find it that clean (it wasn't horrible, but it wasn't fantastic), I had some issues with the doors for the shared bathroom and my room. My room definitely needed some repairs and I can't say it was very comfortable. The TV and internet worked and I loved the location. The staff that I met were very nice and accommodating. They even let me leave my luggage. I know they are doing the best they can with the property, but the home is older and it definitely seems it could use some work. So if you are on a budget, I still feel this is worth considering. However, if you can afford a bit more, you may want to go with one of the other accommodations in the area.

Hotel Good, Restaurant Awful
Hotel was fine, but the restaurant had the worst service I have ever experienced. Food less than average. I guess the wait staff was overwhelmed.

The owner Sahid was so nice and very helpful. The continental breakfast was good. Our room was spacious and clean. Overall, i would recommend this place.

Comfortable place to stay within walking distance to most 'centre' sites. A bit up hill on the way, but makes an easy downhill return at the end of the day. On the edge of New Town with some great places to eat just up around the corner
