I guess the hotel would be average apart from the a/c issue. It is clean, and the staff is fine. Free wired internet in the room is nice, but I suppose wireless in the rooms would be too much to ask.
Little complaints: A bathroom sink drainage system that only drains water if you hold the valve down. i suppose this is to save water. Also, there is just one substance for body soap and shampoo, and it's not so great as either.
The big complaint: When the hotel says they have air conditioning, it means they have it when they want to have it. My stay in late May apparently is deemed a non-a/c time of year, and the room got really hot. When I asked about the a/c, they told me there is none, and I should open the window. Well, sure, but if you've been to places like this in China, you know how loud the honking is from outside. Then there are also the bugs, as of course there is no screen.
When you book a place in this price range, you should be ok with no refrigerator, low water pressure in the shower, kinda crappy soap and amenities... but being hot in your hotel room should not be part of the bargain. Especially when it is just because the hotel is being cheap.
