Not to be confused with Holiday Inn, which is situated directly behind this hotel, the rooms felt starkly different from what the outside presented. Everything felt dated; light bulbs were incandescent, the wallpaper was from an era ago, the TV is still a big grey box (unlike the LCDs they use for advertisements elsewhere). There are also only two elevators serving the entire hotel, which is a bit of an oversight for the large number of rooms that they have.
Some rooms do come with balconies and provides a better transition between the indoor and outdoor space. However, rooms facing the main road are not able to deal with the constant road noise, especially the incessant use of car horns. There isn't much of a view, so that should not affect the choice of room. Wired ethernet is provided in the rooms (cables may or may not be included - some of my friends did not have the cable, some did), but WiFi can only be accessed after a call to the front desk. At night, it is very picturesque as it has a large courtyard to the main road. It is also very prominent, so it should be easy to spot. It is, however, also right next to Holiday Inn, which would be a better choice as a hotel.
