Strategic location but facilities are lacking.
They don't clean the room for the 3 days I stayed, nor provide any drinking water or hot water service. Towels will not changed throughout the duration you stay. Hardly see the cleaner around. Staff engrossed with their hand phone.

Pleasant stay
Clean, located between two bah kuh teh shop and other eating shop, one taxi car station downstairs
It was nice and comfortable, spacious bed, water heater, small basin, place to hang towels, one English movie Channel HBO, one sport channel, wifi is good. Room door locks are secured enough. Toiletries consist of two bars of soap and one toilet paper roll. Outside noise from night life is minimal, occasionally can hear motorbike, cleaner lady sweeping, other hotel patrons opening and closing their doors. To change the air-cond temperature, you need to be tall enough to reach the remote control. The toilet bowl faces a wall. To reach your room, you have to climb ten steps of staircase on each floor.
