I don't know the name of the young man at the front desk who greeted us at the check-in at night but I want to especially point out that he was one of the best receptionists I've ever met. Kind, polite, smiling, professional, taking good care of guests and their requests, yet modest and sincerely friendly. I need a husband... More

This little nook would be a nice deal anywhere. The fact that it's right down the lane from the middle of Bangla is just awesome. I'd say the fact that I see women of all ages booked here speaks more to the caliber of the rooms than I ever could. I booked the better room and it's worth it. Nice... More
