Great location, bit over-priced
Strand Rd T: (057) 25 764
Probably the best location in town, the Attran Hotel has bungalows, (and they really do like suburban bungalows), on a lawn right at the top north west corner of town on Strand Road, overlooking the bridge and the waterfront.
The interiors are roomy enough and have air-con and hot water showers but they have seen better days and the asking price is steep to say the least. The second row has cheaper options but no view so sort of defeats the purpose of staying there. Furthermore in high season, despite the price, most river view rooms will be booked up by tour groups anyway. Best thing about Attran is the restaurant situated behind reception and located right on the waterfront. The hotel does lay claim to free WiFi – if it's working – rooms have free coffee and tea making facilities at least and come with breakfast. Overall not that bad but it is well overpriced.
