I heard many things about this place, some good, some bad. I, therefore, wanted to try Basaga myself and booked a room for a night. What a pleasant experience. Very friendly staff, efficient check-in, nice food, pleasant bar, clean room, overall a very cozy place that makes you feel welcome.
OK, the place is not one of these five-star international cold concrete hotel bunkers, it is more like a warm family run hotel at very modest prices. The rooms are basic but everything is functional and clean.
The reasonably sized pool is set in between some large trees and when the wind is blowing, the pool gets a shower of leaves. However, early in the morning, the pool was cleaned in time for me to have an early morning swim. The hotel was situated some distance from the town center but a 30 min walk or a short Taxi ride can get you there. There are a number of interesting restaurants and eating places nearby."Spring", a very nice and modern Shopping Mall as well as a large Chinese Market can be reached on foot in 10 Minutes. For travelers wanting to explore attractions further away, the hotel even offers a small car for hire at very competitive rates.
Overall, a very pleasant experience for a budget price. I would highly recommend this place for everybody seeking a warm and cosy stay even when not traveling on a small budget.More
