No air conditioning; no fans. We had to leave the windows open in order for us to breathe! We had to then close the windows because of the noise - cars & motorcycles racing down the road; people outside talking loudly (past 11:30pm - they are supposed to observe a "quiet time" starting at 11:00pm). The bed had 2 very thin pillows. No coffee maker or anything for the morning. The only thing good about this place was the proximity to the airport and we only stayed one night - not that we slept very much! We will never stay here again and will recommend that everyone pick somewhere else to spend a night.
