1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2008

The room is very small 3m x 3m. Bed is pushed right to the wall in one corner, leaving only a L-shaped passage, barely 18 inch wide. Once you have your luggage on the floor, you have to step over it to move around. A half height wardrobe is provided but it was a pain to use it. The doors cannot be fully opened as it is blocked by the bed, and you have to climbed onto the bed to hang your clothing. To make things worst, the four hangers are "stuck" in the wardrobe. You need to adopt a 'first in last out' approach to hang your clothing. The shower room has hardly space for you to put your personal toletries. The walls are thin, perhaps made of partition board, and you can hear the noises from the corridor or from the next room. The bed sheets are thin and you will feel cold with the air-conditioning. Without the air-conditioning, the room would be hot and stuffy as there is no window.

This hotel is not designed for tourist . This hotel is for people who wants to have sex with a call girl from the street. If you are in transit, and need only a shower and rest, it is ok. Even so, this no frill room will set you back at US$55 a night.
