2/10 Poor

My room had no windows. It was obviously an ex-brothel, who else would have an unscreened shower in the corner of the room and a long thin mirror on the wall next to the bed that you can only view when lying down? I could not sleep due to a continual loud whirring/buzzing sound that may have been air conditioning or something. The entrance procedure at 7pm was confusing and overly complicated. Absolutely no ambiance at all. Feels very cheap and slightly dangerous. Would not recommend at all.

4/10 Fair

I found this hotel experience to be rather receptive in what is being offered. Online it is portrayed as if you recieve a hotel room with a bathroom, instead the shower, bed and sink are crudely shoved into the same room. There was no air conditioning in our room or way to comfortable clear steam. I had to remove insects from my shower and rubbish that the previous guest had left. Our check in staff were also terribly rude and seemed abrasive when responding to questions. The location was convenient being close to all the bars and shops, but that seems to be the only perk of the experience. Unless you are looking for the bare minimum in hygiene, I wouldn’t recommend this hotel.
