Decent place to stay, quite new, very nice pool/lounge area! Pretty close to the heart of the city, 3 blocks from City Square, the governor's palace and a huge market 3 blocks the other way. Only $55 US a night. There is a small restaurant and the front desk staff are great

I had the same red chicken dish and Becky’s fears proved unfounded as what she ordered unknowingly turned out to taste like Heinz chicken ...
