Overall this hotell is liveable but just barely. The staff is nice and do what they can. The breakfast is made by one (!) chef, a round woman who takes her time. One morning we waited for an hour for the scrambled eggs. There is also some sausages, nudles or rice, bread to toast, butter and jam. Orangejuice and coffee/tea.... More

Rooms have been refurbished roughly. Bathrooms are very old. Everything felt dirty. Card locks dont work well and will keep you awake at night with people trying to get into their rooms. Wifi didn't work in the room either. I was supposed to stay three nights, left after one. This is a old hotel charging too much because of location,... More

Hotel cleanliness and environment is satisfactory. Location is good as it is just few steps to the immediate night food street and nearby shopping facilities. We enjoyed the hawkers' food and restaurant dishes in the locality.
