Good Stay
We enjoyed staying at the Ruch. The staff were some of the friendliest we've ever encountered. When we checked in we were given a nice room, but no AirCon which is necessary, so we asked and were moved to a much small room with AC, which was great. Cleanliness of the bathroom could be improved. Also there was no where in the bathroom to put your toothbrush etc. The restaurant was very good. Wifi worked well all the time.

Ok for one night-otherwise look elsewhere.
Hotel is very dated, and badly in need of refurbishing. The staff were friendly and helpful. Very hard to find if you are driving, but of course locals (taxi drivers) know exactly where it is. Ask somebody- GPS will take you to a different location.

Very friendly and helpful staff! Breakfast was basic, but more than adequate with made-to-order dishes available. Thank you for the hospitality!
