Let's start with the curb appeal. As we arrived it was dark and dangerous looking.Most businesses in the area were iron clad with security (metal) garage doors hiding whatever is inside. We rang the door bell buzzer and up the door came. The lobby was about 8 feet wide and 5 of those were filled with motor bikes (that's where they park them- in the lobby @#$%!).
We were escorted to the elevator and tried to shake it off...
Until the door opened and we began laughing. It was 3 feet deep by 4 feet wide (the smallest elevator I've ever seen). 3 of us with only carry on were packed in like sardines. It's a good thing we were exhausted and it was already 1am or we would have been outta there fast. Our room was a blast from the past. Box tv, with no channels or movies. A bed good enough for crashing but you can't rate this room for comfort because it's just not comfortable. The new slippers were a nice touch (especially since your suspicious about going in bare feet lol).
Let's just say we were glad when it was over.
Oh, and let's not forget the breakfast. There's a few small tables (watch out for ants). What more can I say. The people are so kind and nice I feel bad saying all this. But it's true. My wife's a 5 star kinda gal so all she could say was: "Ewww!"
