The Meridian has spacious rooms with private baths and TVs and a small pool. The staff members are friendly and the place is very quiet, conducive for relaxation. But the hotel’s positive points stop there.

The building is a bit old and dilapidated, and it seems like the hotel always has empty rooms. It has become a bit smelly, including its bedding, from chemicals that were sprayed to get rid of pests. In terms of convenience, the hotel is just a few minutes to the downtown area, but it is still not near enough that the distance could be hiked.

The hotel’s surroundings give one a feeling of being in a subdued country village. We wandered around and found out that a few minutes away, a river with a majestic view could be sighted. There is also an eatery nearby that seems to be filled only at mealtime, especially at night.
