Not that pleasant
The room was small and very basic, compare to other hotel, the heater in the room was better. The bed was hard though. No way to borrow hair dryer from the hotel, it was always out there somewhere, even though we need to pay a refundable deposit for borrowing it. Can’t request for extra pillow with the housekeeping, they said it was all out to the rooms. The bathroom was quite the size of an airplane bathroom, small and might easily bang on the wall if not careful.
The hotel staffs were not helpful, we asked some inquiries and quite often they seemed reluctant giving us information.
The hotel only serves breakfast and the food was average. The restaurant and the bar were closed after 12 pm; that means we could not order food from the restaurants for supper.
Wi-fi is only at the lobby, we had to stand at the corner doing our wi-fi as the sofas were often occupied by the tour staffs who work together with the hotel.
There were always men who rent their car as taxi, standing at the lobby. When we ask inquiries from the reception about some places, they would come close wanting to know and they would tell us how far it was to travel to the place we were inquiring, and they would ask us if we need a ride. Some of the time, we suspected that they made it up about the distance of the places so it seemed far and better to go there by taxi.
In conclusion, the stay was not pleasant as we thought even though the review of the hotel was high.
