Can't beat the location but the rooms are small as well as the bathrooms only have one small sink, but a large shower. One of the few places that does have air conditioned rooms, so that is a plus. Beds and furniture are fairly old and uncomfortable but clean. This should be classified more as a business hotel. I would...

The rooms each have different characters--some with balconies, some with A/C, some with built-in desks, and so forth. Everything clean. The rooms little spartan without any...
