The hotel is very close to the airport, but is in the middle of nowhere. The only place to go is a near by 7-11 which you have walked on a shoulder of a busy road to get to. It was quite scary having to do so at night as there is no street light and very dark on that stretch of road.
The front desk was courteous and friendly. Check in process was swift and efficient which I appreciate after a long flight. They arranged a taxi for us next morning to train station which came right on time the next morning.
The hotel itself is dated with a lot of wear and tear. The hallways and our room smelled musty with hints of old cigaret mixed with cleaning detergent and cheap room refresher. We had a double bed room. The room is again dated, small, but adequate. The beds were clean and comfortable, but everything else, just ok. The carpet is old and was not very comfortable walking on it with my barefoot. The furnitures showed a lot of age and worn. The TV is old fashioned with limited selections. The bathroom is very small. Although I know it is clean, I still don't like to see the moldy grout lines.
The breakfast had a good spread of Asian food, baked goods and a salad bar. The quality is average, nothing to write home about.
Overall, it was an ok experience and good for an overnight stay due to proximity to the airport, but I don't think I will come back again.
