I knew that this hotel would be basic with nothing to blow guests away with but it was still fairly disappointing. This is a budget place so lower your expectations before arriving. I wasn't expecting much but I thought it would be a good place to stay based on past reviews.
The front desk staff were extremely nice and spoke English.
The issues I had were the rooms were so small! I was shocked the first night when we first opened our door, we could see a quarter of the bed without even stepping into the room. The main problem I had was with the cleanliness of the room. The sheets were not 100% clean and I left a note for the maid, pointing out a stain on one of them. When we came back that evening, they didn't replace the sheet and just used the same one for the entire duration of our stay.
Maybe they didn't change it because they appear to outsource their cleaning services and it would have been too difficult to clean it?
On our last day, there was no hot water in the morning when we wanted to shower. The front desk had the problem fixed after 30 minutes.
