I stayed here for three nights in July 2013 in a Classical Room in Building A - 6701.
The first surprise was that they asked for the full three nights payment in advance, plus deposit, despite the reservation being backed by a credit card. Maybe tis was to stop you running away after the first night. The front desk had no English ability which meant that all communication was via my inexperienced companion.
The room had no closet - hanging space was provided by hangers on a hatstand. The room had no fridge. There was a large pillar in the middle of the room which made much of the space useless.
However, the worst feature was the shower. There was no lip on the shower room so water ran out of the shower into the rest of the bathroom and on into the living area. This soaked the carpet. We noticed it was damp on the first evening, but it was late so we did nothing that night and put it down to some previous users carelessness. When we showered ourselves we found that the soaking was inevitable unless you operated the shower at its lowest pressure and made sure the jet pointed away from the door. We complained at the front desk but nothing was done and the suggestion that we could switch rooms was shrugged off. In addition, whatever setting you used for hot/cold the water temperature varied from cold to boiling in about 30 second cycles.
Yes - it is close to the South Gate, but there is metro construction in between so it's not walkable.
Don't stay here unless you're desperate.
