Within a tourist area of the town and easy for customers to mix and do lots of shopping. Customers need to be circumspect in striking new friendships and invitations from ‘seeming’ locals as some might be end up in fraud. The hotel is neat and offers good air conditioning services. The meal is great but less diverse as should be, considering the different nationalities that usually visit.
