This spot was perfect for 2 friends on the go...we didn't hang in room. Great location and price . Cramped bathroom and noisy at night. (Noise expected for central location). We had a good experience!

Best part about this hotel is the location otherwise it’s no frills and the proprietor has no regard for your belongings (baggage left at desk is left unattended for anyone to grab) or your time. It was made clear that check in starts at 15:00, but then the proprietor didn’t show up until 16:00 without any apology and made it clear he didn’t care.

Not worth the price. Photos definitely misleading. Nothing worked during the entire stay: elevator, TV, internet, refrigerator. very shabby, hallways filled with unused items. Water leaked in during a rainy day and it was clear it has happened before. Zero hospitality. The only positive thing I can say is it was a good, central location.

I booked this hotel bcoz of it's location. I wasn't too impressed with it starting with the check-in. The assume the guy who check us in was the owner bcoz I don't think an employee will be that rude. He called us LAZY AMERICAN bcoz since the elevator was NOT WORKING and we have to carry our bags to the second floor!! The room is so small for 3 people. We can hardly move around in the room. Shower you gotta leave the door open so you can move. The second room seems a bit bigger. The bathroom door was broken and when I asked one of the worker he tried to fix it but still can't fix. THe hallway smell like someone been puking all over the carpet. It's said open from 9am-9pm but some day it doesn't open until after 10am. I tried to talk to few to asked questions they seem friendly but can't speak. Room was clean enough. Bed only have fitted sheet.
