Like most people I stayed here for the intrepid trip. It is absolutely fine. But if you are not on a tour or you have extra time go somewhere else. I had 2 days before the tour started so I stayed at another hotel (the charming II- highly recommended) in the old quarter and then moved here for the start of the tour.
It is more than adequate, just about clean and comfortable, although my room was a bit damp/musty. Good wifi. Quite a nice breakfast. Staff are ok but don't go out of their way for you. It is cheap but there are cheaper and better places to go. It is quite handy for the western lake, but a bit of a trek to the old city. My overwhelming feeling was it will do, but it isn't a treat or all that delightful. If you have time before a tour, don't just go here because that's where the company starts, try somewhere else first and give yourself a bit of a treat.
