A basic hotel with helpful and pleasant staff

1. The room was clean; 2. The staff was helpful; 3. The swimming pool is available at any time
Though it does not locate in the city center, it is easy to to get there by taking a tuk-tuk. The hotel staff was helpful and pleasant, and they even let us to use the swimming pool after the official hours!
