Popped away in a corner of town, Tang Dynasty Lodge is an imposing hotel and an anomaly in this little town, but it’s easy to remove it from your field of vision and walk on by.

We recommend that you don’t walk on by, and instead walk on in, as it’s the best value in town.

The smart air-con rooms in this multi-storey business hotel are better than we had anticipated; not only are they spacious and bright, but they are tastefully decorated and well appointed. Some fittings are a little tired, and the box-style TV tells of its age, however freshly painted walls and crisp white linens on comfortable beds mask any faults. Clean tiled bathrooms are roomy with copious bench space but while the showers are supposedly hot, they weren’t for us. Quieter rooms face into an ugly cement courtyard, others out to the street, but as it’s a dead end, there’s not a lot of traffic. WiFi is free, but like the hot shower wasn’t really happening. Breakfast is not included, nor is there a restaurant, but the night market is conveniently close for picking up some freshly barbecued fish.

Tang Dynasty Lodge doesn’t have a laundry service, but pointed us in the direction of a handy 24-hour launderette opposite. Friendly and helpful staff were excited to see foreigners and willing to store our bags at no cost while we visited Mantanani Island. This is a solid flashpacker choice, and if you’ve come from a jungle camp or dorm on the islands, it will feel like the lap of luxury.
