I am writing this at 1.20 am in the morning because I cannot sleep due to the terrible noise of heavy machinery working at a construction site next door. It is a real problem. When I checked in, I was told that that they work 9 am-11 pm but in reality they never stop. Most of the time at night it is just mild noise which one can tolerate but today it is just impossible and tomorrow I will see if I can move out. I actually feel sorry for this hotel and all neighboring properties because it is not their fault. And I guess they cannot fight whoever is building the metro station to stop the night work. I should also say that the staff here are really nice and helpful. If not for the noise, it is an ok place to stay. However bear in mind that the construction is to continue until 2017.
