“Attention, readers! While the hotel rankings in this post are compiled based on aggregated customer ratings, remember they aren’t absolute. Please bear in mind the following points!

Price: Keep in mind, hotel prices can swing dramatically based on your stay dates. We’ve used weekday rates as a guide, but remember, prices can change according to the season, whether it’s peak or off-peak, and depending on if it’s a weekend or a weekday.

That said, we’ve made sure these are prices for the same date, making them ideal for a fair comparison between hotels.

Hotel Classification: We’ve applied hotel classifications based on the standards set by Agoda.

Rankings: We’ve prioritized hotels with high ratings from three different sites(Agoda, Booking.com, and Google Maps). However, don’t overlook the fact that there could be many hidden gems among the lower-ranked or not-included hotels in this post.”
