This is a government converted building hotel. The outlook and interior is that of the communist office. Every floor had a counter sited near the lift lobby. This served as the housekeeping supplies store as well as preventing the hotel guest from having the company of undesirable elements. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast was served... More

Large, old hotel. The rooms were very big. The beds were very firm. The bathrooms very basic. There was a lot of truck traffic noise at night. The breakfast was mediocre. The location is good. Nice view of the river.

For the price, you could stay at many other nicer hotels around the area. This facility is old, infected with roaches, and overall cleanliness is subpar. My family members were bitten by bed bugs and we requested that they change the sheets ASAP. It took them over a day to do it! Also watch out for the travel office next... More

The rooms were fairly large which was great, however the staff weren't at all friendly, especially the breakfast/dining room staff. We figured out that there was still some hostility if they thought you were American, even though the 10 of us were Australian.

Greeted by the most miserable staff - didn't smile once during our whole stay. Even though our booking said we were to get included tea and coffee making facilities we had to fight to get anything. Eventually admitted it but only agreed to supply a kettle. Gave in when I asked to speak to the manager. That was the story... More

Our room was very big, with one bed 120 cm and the other 160cm, beautiful view from 3.rd floor to river. Traffic noise was quite loud, even during night. Beds and pillows were comfy. There is no blind curtains, light sleeper will wake up with sunrise. Room was very clean, french colonial design. Friendly and helpful staff, and they speak... More

Large rooms, nice lobby, good breakfest, clean but spartan bathroom, but the windows to the river are old and not isolating the room from the heavy noise on the street. If noise is no issue for you, it is o.k. If not, better change to Renaissance Riverside Hotel or similar.

Showing its age but good location and very friendly staff. Stayed on the 3rd floor, which was in the middle of renovation but was not too much of a problem. Room was large but bathroom is in serious need of updating. Strangely, was not able to have an iron in my room on 'safety grounds'! Having made it to 43... More

My stay in this hotel has been better and better every time. The staff is cooperative. Nice clean and well maintained. Net is also of good speed without much hick ups. You can surely use it for your phone as well.
