Quaint yet modern, friendly front desk lady, location is what you make of it: 40 minute walk to the old city sights and 1 hour+ walk to the beach. The biggest drawback is NO fridge (not even a tiny one), NO in-room safe, NO usable hot water, and in my case (room #304) NO view. Internet has worked sporadically only. There is a small pool (about 3X7 meters. Still could be decent value but I would personally never book a hotel room all over south east asia if I know there would not be a small fridge!
