Poor 2.0
The worse stay ever. The hotel is terrible and the staff is very aggressive. I left after 30 minutes of checking in, so you can imagine what did I find. The hotel refuse to cancel and refund any money. They claim that they are three star hotel so they can be dirty, aggressive and you should accept whatever they offer.

The Lion Hotel was good for the price charged, and the interior was in good condition, especially the corridors which looked to have recently been renovated, but the carpet in my room 31 was in need of replacing and the bathroom while a good size needed updating. There was not really any facilities to use as the adjoining Papaya café/ restaurant was shut due to refurbishment. The hotel is situated 10-15 minute walk of the central city area in one direction and a similar distance in the opposite direction to the main railway and bus stations. Very handy Metro stop right by the hotel entrance. Overall it is worth staying but the facilties are basic, but options if you do not mind a short walk.
