This one, a 10-room spot on Mini-Hotel Alley, instantly stands out among its surrounding competition with a real hotel lobby. The rooms are nicer too, with air-con, mini-fridge and well-kept furniture. The modern Western-style bathrooms are big for the price range. It is worth your while to pay a few extra dollars so you can secure one of the rooms in the front of the hotel, which have the bonus of a spacious balcony. While you will pay a higher price to stay here than twith the neighbours, it's money well spent. If you're lucky, you may find that they can become quite competitive on rates if they are running low on occupancy during the slow season; their posted rates remain the same but bargaining here can save you as much as 40%.
