We stayed at 88 hotel for 8 days in February.
The rooms were small but good enough, after all you don't spend much time in your room.
When I arrived they placed us in a room with two singles despite paying for a queen, they could not accommodate us that night but we moved the next day. They tried to say I had made the mistake but I had paperwork to back me up - made me very mad!
The air con worked well but they only supply one room key and once the card is taken out of the power slot all the electricity goes off, including the fridge which is annoying to come home to hot drinks.
Also when they clean the rooms they leave the bathroom open which brings in the smell from the water. Not pleasant.
I found the staff not very friendly, most can't speak English which I don't mind but I do mind when they nod their head yes to what you are saying rather than letting you know they don't understand you - this lead to an annoying incident in which they tried to charge me for something I had not received.
The breakfast is crap - it's the same choice every day, if you enjoy mystery meat then you are ok. I ditched the breakfast and went down the road every day for much better choices.
The hotel pool is good, on the roof and no one really uses it so we pretty much had it to ourselves every day.
The hotel is on nanai road, quick walk to juncelon shopping centre and bangla road.
There is no safe in your room, they have a box at the front desk that you can lock your things in but I don't trust them with my passport.
Overall I would say that if your looking for a cheap, clean hotel then stay here.
