        We were traveling with a toddler and a baby, and I liked how the location was close to the drugstore, the supermarket, and family-friendly restaurants. Getting around is easy since pedicabs frequent the area. We rented a small fridge for the milk bag's ice packs, and it was offered at a very reasonably affordable price. It had a few mold in it, though, so we had to clean it up a bit before using it. The hotel is generally an ok place to stay with young kids. I would recommend it to those looking for an affordable yet accessible place to stay.

        It is very convenient because it is situated at the downtown. For those people who don’t like to stroll much just to find something to eat, The cafe Laguna is a plus factor for food/ restaurant locations. The shops is just next to it. If you are looking for more restaurants and bar the boulevard has more to offer which is a walking distance from the hotel.
