This is a tourist trap. Yes, old style with history - and with quite location, but not worth it when it comes to standard and service.
We stayed for 9 days. Every day problem with Internet. Language problem also at the reception. Terrible Chinese breakfast! Charged extra when making a local call from reception. International calls? Forget it! Overcharged! This is not a place for business! This is a tourist trap! "Listen to the waves from the seaview room"? No, more likely to listen to the traffic noise. Far away from the beach! At last we found our heaven: Oceanwide Elite hotel. We payed more, but then we could feel like a king, not like a "prisoner" at the castle.
