You will need to wait for up to 30 minutes for the bus during the week, and much longer on Sundays. Plus, once you reach the city centre, you will need to find alternate transport to reach your hotel. 

Editor’s Note

If you're travelling in a group or with lots of luggage, I recommend taking a taxi instead of the bus, as it's much more convenient and still affordable.

There's no luggage storage on the bus.
If paying for your ticket in cash, be sure to bring small change in the local currency.
