Simple and nice
The location is good. Next to a shopping mall and around 10 mins' to Gaya street where all the food and souvenirs are. The facilities are limited but whatever is provided to decent in quality. A nice 3-star hotel in the region.

wood not stay there again
Rooms are very small, packed with furniture you do not need. No drawer space at all. Very little Western food, no choice at all. Beans, and egg every day, that is all.

Second visit and also the last
Stayed here 4 years ago and was satisfied This time we stayed in a spacious room with 2 double beds ... room 312. It was disgraceful. The carpet on Level 3 is disgusting. The room is years past its refurbishment date. The shower screen was moldy and filthy. It would surely fail any health inspection. The view from the room is an ugly incomplete building obstructing the water view. We will not be returning.
