We stayed here while with a large tour group in late May 2012. Our room was on the 9th floor. The room itself was ok, but the bathroom was sub standard for a hotel of this size. There were floor tiles missing in the shower and mildew too. The towels were thin and fraying on the edges. We tried to change rooms, thinking maybe we just got a bad room - but when we went to the new room it was even worse than the one we had before! I should also mention that asking for a new room was not painless either! The hotel staff did not speak very good English, which made it hard. The breakfast buffet was good - lots of choices.
Our keys got deactivated 3 times during our 5 day stay - rather annoying.
The checkout took a LONG time. Not sure if it was due to the hotel staff or the guests fault, but there was only one desk open - they could have opened another to expedite the line.
Lastly, the location is not good for local sightseeing. Taxi's were expensive because it was so far from all the sites. For us it was ok because the tour handled most of our transfers to the sights, but on our free days we realized just how far away from everything we were. A few taxi's wouldn't even drive us back to the hotel because it was too far or they were unfamilair with the area. If you are not with a tour I would recommend staying somewhere more central to the main attractions.
Overall, I would not stay here again. The only highlight was the local neighborhood. We walked about in the evening and saw the local stores and people, which were very nice.
