Great stay
We stayed her for 1 night. Breakfast was ok, maybe for the coffee they couldve add on more variety eg cappucino, black rather than just white coffee

Surprise that there isn't any genset backup during the power cut off. Not only for 1 or 2 hours but since I check in ard 10pm until the next morning 6am still isn't any improvement

Great choice
I booked a deluxe room through Agoda, and I must say I was very satisfied with the facilities provided, especially at the discounted price I got the room for. No complaints from me regarding the cleanliness and breakfast spread. The location was perhaps not as great as some other hotels, but it was OK. But what I liked the most was the availability of a ceiling fan in the room. I'm not a fan of A/C at night, and most hotels I've been to doesn't offer any other options. It's either I sleep completely covered by a blanket, or get frozen. So the ceiling fan was a nice touch, personally speaking.
