Situated on the northeast side of town, off Independence Avenue, this friendly, pink-painted pension stands on the side of a hill, making it an airy spot when it's hot. The centre of town is a 10–15-minute walk away, though Uhland has plenty of secure parking if you have a car.
The new owners are completely renovating this small pension, with evident pride. Cane furniture complements the carpeted rooms, which each have Mnet TV, clock/radio, phone, mosquito nets, fans, tea/coffee-making facilities and minibar/fridge. Renovations are expected to be complete in 2003. The comfortable living room with TV and stereo adjoins the breakfast room, while outside is a patio with a pool, and a thatched bar area. Some rooms have a couch which turns into two beds, and even small kitchens, all for the same price, so ask what's available when you book or check in.
