I stayed at this hotel largely based on the reviews of others on this site. I would agree that the staff are friendly and helpful. That's about all I can agree with. The hotel used to be old cheap apartments. A lot of money has been spent to make the gardens look nice but they must have run out of funds to do anything with the rooms other than put in a new basic (futon style) bed. The rooms were not secure (the lock consists of a padlock handed at arrival) and let in lots of mosquitos (mosquito net was provided). The ceiling was covered in mould and there were cockroaches in the bathroom (not to mention rats in the eating area at breakfast that were also interesting). It is really just cheap backpacker accomodation (not that there's anything wrong with that- I've stayed at places like this before but the price should be about $10-$15US, not $50US!)
Its also located on a busy street some way out of town and the walk consists of walking an hour along broken pavement above sewers. You can't stay in though as (putting to oneside the mosquitos) the Wi-fi was no more than a crawl pace and tv consisted of BBC news as the only English station.
We tried to leave after the first night but because we booked through a website (latestays.com) we had to cancel through the site direct and were charged large admin fee (still preferable to staying another night there)
Really disappointed with this place. Was the first time I felt really misled by the reviews on Tripadviser (unless the "superior room we had just happened to be the worst in the hotel...)
