“Unpleasant Stay”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I stayed at hotel as I had to attend unexpected conference. The hotel looked very good from outside and staff seemed to be professional, however, when I checked in to the room there was little window that allowed limited light to come into the room; it was small and incredibly dark room. I asked for other and they give me a choice but smell was also there and when I asked about this problem with other people staying in hotel I came to know they were facing same bad smell in hotel rooms.

This "hotel" has the smallest rooms ever. You barely can fit your suitcase in the door and shut the door. Then, well, let me tell you about the bathroom. There is no separate shower. The bathroom has a toilet and a shower. You can sit on the toilet and shower at the same time. This is not a joke. The toilet is wet when you shower. The set up is simply ridiculous. I guess this is what prison is like. I paid $50 US, which I feel is approximately $45 too much. There was a television with limited tv. I believe they also had a dvd player. However, you do not want to spend any time in the room. The room was clean and presentable. Just not for any one with a fear of small spaces. The sheets were also too small for the bed so you could feel the plastic cover on the mattress. They did provide me with a free internet access code so that I could use the internet in the room. There were places to eat Chinese food in close proximity to the hotel that were open late. I was a bit tired, but at least there were food options within walking distance. Overall, this small "hotel" is not a place I would like to visit again.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.
