“Needs a good cleaning”
Reviewed February 1, 2010

It's really a shame about this hotel. The location is perfect - close to the main pedestrian street, old street, the bird and flower market, the rooms are spacious, transportation is convenient and the price is right. But they have been inexcusably lax in maintaining an acceptable standard of cleanliness. So at best, this is just a well-situated, dirty one-star. The walls in my room were covered with carcasses of dead bugs that people had swatted. Mildew was growing around the sink, the windows were horribly dirty, and there was a stench coming from the drain in the bathroom. I dared to look under the bed - disgusting. In a country that has some of the cheapest labour in the world, I don't understand why this establishment would not pay someone to thoroughly clean the rooms on a regular basis. Because if they swept it out and slapped on a fresh coat of paint in the rooms, it could be enomously popular with low-budget travellers.

A couple of other negative points. Breakfast was, as another poster mentioned, inedible. I managed to make do with a mantou and a hard-boiled egg from the buffet. But it is included in the already low price of the the room, so what can one expect? The desk staff were obnoxious and disorganised. Another person posted that the place is not secure, and I can see his point. The reception is on the third floor, so anyone can take the elevator directly up to a guest floor without being noticed. My room had a chain lock installed on the door so I felt safe at night but wasn't so comfortable leaving my valuables in the room during the day.

On a more postive note, the sheets were clean and the shower had good water pressure...and it was cheap.

We picked this place on a Lonely Planet recommendation that it was bordering on (cheap) boutique. It was cheap, but about as far away from 'boutique' as you can get. Maybe it was once, but our room was dirty, the beds were very uncomfortable and the bathroom was unbearably smelly. The breakfast that is included was inedible also. We were intending to stay a few days if it worked out but couldn't stay here any longer..
The staff however were excellent and tried very hard to understand English for us.
