Stayed here at the end of May for a couple of nights (Mon and Tues night), and I must say, it's really not too bad a hotel. Yes, it's old, with a cranky air-conditioner, and tiny bathroom, very old style, but some of the terrible reviews seem abit exaggerating to me. The free continental buffet breakfast was good enough for my husband and me, you could help yourself to as much breakfast cereals (about 6 different types of variety, if I remembered correctly), milk, toast and fruit as you wish. Coffee and tea as well. Yes the free breakfast doesn't include any hot items like omelettes and so on, but doesn't bother us much. Room was pretty clean, just that the bed may have been abit too soft for us (hence many other customers review that the bed's comfy), but it may just be that the husband and I have abit of a bad back and would prefer something firmer. Rooms were good-sized for a couple in my opinion though (stayed in a room with a queen bed and a single bed)!
All in all, for the price, I guess it was quite a good stay!
