Located at the intersection of two alleys- in a slightly rundown commercial business area, of sorts. Location means there is an awful lot of passing traffic, i.e. accelerating scooters, vans - all tooting horns, security stutters being pulled up and down, and people shouting the odds. My business dictated that I leave and return during a week’s stay at the hotel so I got to try two rooms (bed and breakfast). Both rooms were at the front of the building, (alley side); one on the fourth and one on the first. It didn’t seem to make any difference to the noise levels, as the alley acts like a boom box. The Literature says, ‘oversized windows’ - the rooms are small and dark – buildings opposite are perhaps only 10 metres away, so natural light is not good. No view, to speak of. Bathrooms are correspondingly small. Beds are hospital hard. Rooms are clean, but not spotless. Both the Wi-Fi and the a/c worked during my stay. The Desk speak English - and that’s it. Breakfast room is simply a large - large by this hotels standards, anyway - white room. Food is plentiful, but completely uninspiring, and pretty tasteless fair.
Would I recommend? As a one or two nights (max), on business, I guess you could do worse, (but having said that I would not come back again, if I was to ever venture to these parts again). As a holiday destination - no.
