My friend and I spent one night here and we couldn't wait to leave.
The shared bathroom was dirty, and there was no bathmat so the floor was a deathtrap. There were two of us, but only one towel as the other towel seemed to have been used to catch the drips from the air conditioning (incidentally, we weren't able to have control of the air con, we had to go to reception to get them to change it.)
Also, we came back in the evening and the whole building smelled like excrement, not exactly what we look for in a "hotel".
24 hour reception is good, as is location, but that's about all there is to say about it.
