The friendly receptionists at the Eastern Paradise struggle with English but are friendly and welcoming.
The hotel is located a three-minute walk from the main road and is a five-minute walk to the central market. Rooms are plain but have everything you'll need including hot and cold water, soft mattresses, extra pillows and comforters, desk and WiFi. The rooms are very well maintained but would look much nicer with hardwood floors instead of the current cheap green carpet. Second-floor rooms are identical but cost $5 more because they offer views of the surrounding green hills. We were impressed by the giant shared balcony on the second floor; it would serve as a great place to read or have a few drinks and enjoy the view. The on-site restaurant offers free breakfast.
