Liked: Vom Zimmer und Der dachterasse hat man einen tollen Blick Auf den Vulkan. Die angestellten haben mir bei allen fragen geholfen. Die Küche war ganz gut ausgestatten. Aus Der dusche kam richtig viel Wasser. Das Hotel liegt nur 3 Gehminuten vom Busbahnhof, Supermarkt und Stadtzentrum aber Richtung auswärts aus Der Stadt. Also Ist es schön ruhig.

Disliked: Ameisen im Zimmer.

Liked: Location. Location. Location. Close to the main street area but not too close so it is very nice and quiet at night. Great price. Rooms are basic. Double Bed and fan is it. No chairs or closet to hang clothes, A couple shelves are available behind door. Owner would do well to put at least a plastic table/ night stand in each bedroom. All the staff are quite friendly. Private bathroom is okay. All and all fantastic for the price.

Disliked: Not really a dislike. A concern. Parking area is not fenced/ gated. But neighborhood seemed very safe.

Liked: Can't beat the price.. Staff were nice. They suggested a trail that wasn't super great ( Arenal 1968 ) .

Disliked: Some kind of band practice takes place in earshot from the rooms and was sometimes loud & annoying. Ants in bathroom... no big deal.
