I travelled here by taxi, First tip, be prepared to haggle the price! You will be amazed how this varies depending on the mood of the driver. Also be prepared for a long walk to the hotel as there are no roads in the near vacinity so I was dropped off quite a distanc away. It is also no the easiest to find for a first timer.
The hotel itself was very nice inside and rustic, it was extremely clean inside. Ssecond tip, if you are nice to the staff, they will be nice to you, of course nicer if you choose to tip them - reccomended.
I travelled March time so it was a lot cloder than expected but the staff were very accomodating, providing extra blankets and even made me tea. The staff were very helpful when it came to planning trips and also gave a few tips on what/what not to do or look out for.
The internet was very poor but to be expected in a developing country.
Some things were not so good. It doesnt matter day or night but a memeber of staff was always sleeping in the dining area so I tended to avoid this as it felt a little intrusive and I didnt want to wake them.
My room overlooked the other rooms, one morning I woke late to see a little boy (10/11) sneaking into the other rooms and looking through peoples belongings - so dont leave money/valuables behind.
However it was a good place in terms of location. I cannot comment on the food here as I felt it was overpriced so chose not to try any of it and ate out instead - there are lots of these places readily available.
Be warned - people will hassle you at every corner asking you where you are going and will offer to tell you the way but wanting payment for this. They are always looking for any excuse to "earn" some money.
