8/10 Very good

Good value hotel with friendly and helpful staff
Kima hotel is a good value for money hotel. It's not in a fantastic area, off the beaten track in a busy area, but once inside the hotel it's quiet and peaceful. The food is good, breakfast is good and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Don't come here expecting the Ritz, but for the price it is better than expected.

OK for a day or two.
Decent value; 15--20 minute walk to town. Recommend taking photo of nearby petrol station to help motorcycle taxi for return trip. Acceptable basic breakfast included. Hotel is upstairs part of a home; little English spoken

4/10 Fair

Cheap room, nice people, not comfortable
Cheap room, but there was so much noise I wasn't able to sleep past 5am. You hear everything--everything--from the hallways and other rooms nearby. Also be advised this is a dodgy part of town. Stay alert, take taxis if unsure.
