It always annoys me when hotels give you no warning about major renovations that are under way At present the hotel looks nothing like the website photos. The "lobby" is a small table wedged near the stairs. There is no lift on the ground floor which means carrying bags up several flights of stairs to get the one lift that is working (sort of - it was out of service for two days when I was there). I'm sure that when full operational this is a hotel that provides good value - the rooms are clean and a junior suite was well under US$50 per night. The staff is nice and they speak English too. Not the best location but it is close the "backpacker district" a 5 minute walk. Bottom line I would avoid this hotel while the renovations are ongoing (betting it is 6 months to a year until finished). The morning construction noise was awful.
