Check in was smooth and relatively quick, you are greeted with juices, a nice touch there. Run down exterior doesn't promise much but the location is superb with Nagoya Hill a 5min walk away and lots of street food just outside the hotel.
When we were checked in, the room I was given was horrendous with the air-conditioning spewing warm air and the toilet smelling dank. I requested for a room change and surprisingly their service was good. Got my room changed and the new one was much better.
Nothing to shout about, some of the room doors don't seem to be fully sealed with gaps at the top of the doors and seemingly paper thin walls. Essentials are there though with LCD TV, okay air-conditioning and clean sheets. Bed is bouncy and soft however, a bane or boon depending on your preference. Toilet is basic but clean with amenities like toothbrushes provided at least.
Overall, budget hotel at a great location. If you're looking to sloth it out in total comfort, I'd recommend Harmoni One. For a bit more dollar, you get a lot more value in terms of the room. However, Formosa is worth considering if you're really into shopping and location convenience.
