We stayed in this hotel for 3 days. The hotel looks ok from the exterior but it's worn out internally.
The hotel corridor looks tired and dimmed. The door is not fully sound proof as we can hear people talking inside the room while walking towards our room. Despite the old building, our room is clean but not spacious. The bathroom is also quiet clean but the tiles look tired. There's a water dispenser located at the lift area. However, there's no staff checking at the unit constantly, as the emptied bottled is not replenish for the whole evening until the next morning despite we have informed the front desk.
As it is the hotel policy for no operation of the air-conditioning unit during winter/spring time, our room get a lil stuffy and filled with smoky smell during the night. We can clearly hear noises from the nearby buildings (probably nightclubs or disco) despite staying at the higher floor, which disrupt our comfort during our stay.
The plus points of this hotel is merely at the strategic location. There's a huge departmental store just across the hotel, and few nice restaurants and cafes adjacent to the hotel. It is also within walking distance to the nearby metro station which is very convenience.
Overall, the hotel need quite a congruous patchwork to be done. It's more like a motel than a hotel at the current stage.
