Overall: Room was small clean and fairly well appointed. I could not get any sleep due to the traffic noise and overwhelming smell of car exhaust.
Good: rooms are small with lots of storage area. The rooms are very clean. The breakfasts although adequate in terms of supply, was very limited in choice.
Bad: When I first arrived they insisted I had no reservation even though I had a printout prepaid voucher. They finally assigned me a room. At check out they insisted I had to pay indicating they had no prepaid voucher from me. Fortunately i keep multiple copies of these and gave them another copy. After a very long discussion they agreed that it was paid.
I could not sleep at night due to traffic noise and the smell of exhaust. In the early morning (4 to 9am) the smell was particularly bad and caused headaches. Traffic was nonstop at night since this is on a busy road where traffic moves very fast considering the size of the road. Since the hotel is at the bottom of a small hill just below the the main shopping road, exhaust seems to accumulate here
Five out of the seven days the hot meat choice on the buffet was hot dogs that I never saw a single client eat. I believe they just rewarmed these from the day before. Coffee was provided in thermoses at the table. Most morning coffee was lukewarm at best. They have busloads of tourists and students staying at this hotel. If you have the misfortune to try and eat breakfast when they are there it is a complete nightmare. Everyone is busy trying to get a quick breakfast before getting on the bus or leaving the hotel together.
Cleaning staff is particularly aggressive trying to get into the room at 9 AM every morning. They did not seem to want to wait until I left the room.
Front desk service is nonexistent.
