I'll be honest, I mainly picked this place over others because of the airspring mattresses. I spend most of the day exploring when I travel so I just wanted to make sure I can get a good comfortable night's sleep. It's something that can be tough to find in Asia..I'll never understand the hard mattresses that seem to be preferred over there. Anyway, I definitely thought this place delivered on my goal of a good's night sleep - the beds were comfy as promised, the air conditioning kept the room cool, and it was nice and quiet (with the exception of an occasional gurgle from the toilet...no big deal once I figured out what it was). The rooms were basic, nothing luxurious or fancy but it met my needs just fine. I will say I could have done with a little less of the lemongrass fragrance everywhere...it got a little overwhelming.
The location was good, I felt secure and enjoyed the view from the rooftop at breakfast (I'll agree with others that an elevator would be nice but a little exercise won't kill me). The food was ok and I appreciated the convenience of it. On the negative side, I will say that we really struggled with communicating with the staff in english and ended up just giving up on what we were trying to ask for half of the time because it was more trouble than it was worth. We probably would have make more use of the services that are available from the front desk to explore a little more but honestly didn't think we'd be able to clearly communicate what we wanted to do. Other than that issue, I was pleased with my selection and would recommend the hotel to others.
