There are more negatives than positives for this hotel. I will be brief:
1- No English speaking staff. Difficult to even get a security box, as there isn't one in the room.
2- No English TV channels. I asked the manager, she dispatched a non- English speaking staff to check. Hmm. Don't you know???? Then staff member starts to surf the channels. I thought she was just "trying" to get something done by making believe they were servicing me.
3- Bathroom/shower. Careful. Almost slipped. The shower gets the entire floor wet - so Asian. Very slippery. Floor to ceiling glass in the bathroom makes a voyeur salivate. Make sure you pull the shower curtain all across the glass wall. The view from the bathroom into the alley - yuck.
4- Thought breakfast was included. Thankfully, it wasn't. Didn't look appetizing. The fish tanks that graced the entrance had 5 dead fish sunk at the bottom of the tanks. Sick. OK, I exaggerate. Only 4 dead ones and one that was on it's last leg, or fin.
5.- No lock box in the room
6- bed that would make the Flintstones happy.
7- Scary location in the back alley away from the main street
8- furniture was modern thrift store. Even the light had to be unplugged or plugged in, as it had no controls to click on or off. How's that for cheap.
1- Area around is full of dining establishments.
2- Area is fine
3- Travel consultant speaks English and very helpful. He booked me for a good dinner show and a tour to Terracotta Warriors.
4- Room clean ( at least it appeared so with the poor lighting.
5- Room was cheap - $63 USD with taxes for 2 nights
Would I recommend - not really. Would I return? No. I am sure there are other options.
