    I didn’t stay. I showed up and no one was there. Someone near by said the owner left and was having a hard time finding employees. I made phone calls and emails and no one for back so walked down the road to another hotel. The location is good but it’s not mapped correctly. The lobby was very dirty. ...

                A very nice hotel with a pool. There didn’t seem to be a restaurant but that didn’t matter because there’s loads of restaurants in the immediate area down the lanes. Most people there had fairly good English. It is very hot but there was air con and a fan so I slept well.
