Blue Lal Hotel
Lonely Planet review
Although extremely austere, these rooms are bright, clean and the showers spurt hot water. Land room 2, 3 or 4 and you'll have a balcony to play on. Try the crêpes with honey at its restaurant, we hear they're great.
Note that vacancies are almost nonexistent during the festival period and European Christmas, so reservations up to six months in advance aren't unheard of. However, prices for reserved rooms during these times soar - one hotel's around Br150 room jumps to US$50! If you arrive during a festival without reservations, you'll risk being forced into a dive. Conversely, if there's space, you'll end up paying a fraction of what you would have if you'd made those costly reservations.
