The hotel is located between a road and a railway track. If the window to your room faces the railway track, you will be able to hear the blaring of horns from the regular trains that pass by the track. But it was not something that affected me so much to the point that I could not sleep as most of the time, I just heard the trains go by, without blaring of horns. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room for the price I paid - firm bed, air-conditioned, plesant bathroom.
The bed-sheets however had some tiny dots and a bigger patch under the blanket (blood-stains?). I was afraid of bed-bugs due to the tiny stains (tell-tale sign of squashed bed-bugs, from my past experience), but I was too tired to change the room as I had arrived very late at night. I lay on the bed and tested out gingerly at first, waiting for the first bite. Finally, no bed-bugs in the end. A huge relief!
Breakfast - no good choices. Just a few dishes had food, the rest were empty. I wouldn't totally recommend it, but overall, I have not much complaints as I was only staying one night after a late flight.
