If you wanna go local, I mean literally local with no marketing knick knacks, this is certainly the right place. In the morning, step outside the hotel and you are in the middle of traditional market. Nothing bad about it though if you opt to it.
The hotel itself, well....I will give 50% as what you see in the photos. It is a typical modern Chinese shop houses that turned into so-so mini hotel. The room is average, the bathroom is the smallest I've ever seen or been to and not in a clean state. It is so average that I'd rather go out and try to enjoy the neighborhood.
At the end I was super excited exploring this area; from traditional market to Chinese temple and private houses with art deco style, tasting a bowl of Chinese chicken noodle to fruit sorbet in small fancy ice cream shop, walking on the main street and explore some old shops and building.
