The hotel is literally 5 minutes from the airport, although when I arrived in the middle of the night - it took 30 minutes before the taxi that was picking me up arrived (from 5 minutes away!). I had pre-paid the 5 USD to be picked up and returned to the airport then following more, yet the taxi driver and the check-in person stated that this was never paid. Luckily I had the email confirmation showing that I did in fact already pay this fee.
Rooms were ok. Pretty clean. REALLY noisy outside. If it weren't for the airconditioning to cool me off and to drown out the noise, I likely would have been awake the entire night. It was VERY HOT and in the middle of the night, the electricity went out - which was a bit disturbing. It was not only pitch black, but it became so uncomfortably hot that I had to just lie there hoping that the airco would pop back on soon (and it luckily did!).
WiFi was available sometimes - which helped. I didn't want to stay in the bathroom long as there was an ant nest near the sink which wasn't pleasant to be around. Didn't stay long - just a quick in and out so can't say much more about other issues.
For a woman staying there alone though - I definitely didn't feel super safe...
