I stayed here for 8 nights in May. I also stayed for a few nights in January 2014
The Hotel is in a great place as its opposite the main shopping places, there are 3 malls across the road and a fantastic Farmers Market for cheap fresh food. There are some nice restaurants locally too, but don't go to the Try Thai (YUK)
The rooms are ok, not a bad size for the money, but they are not very clean - the windows are very dirty, the mirror was full of marks and finger prints, looked like it had not been cleaned for a long time, the sink in room 303 was leaking, the bath looked dirty and floor was full of hair - I had to ask for it to be swept but they do not mop the floors, so they are dirty and stained. The hotel really needs some decorating and updating, as well as extra plug sockets in the room - A small kettle would also be a massive benefit so guests can make tea and coffee when they want it.
The beds are comfortable but really need better bedding,
The food in the hotel that is ordered off the menu was really good, I tried several dishes as did my friends, my favourite was Chop Suey, it was delicious. However, the free breakfast on a few days was cold and over cooked.
A small cup of tea is 50 peso, comes as a small cup of almost hot water and a Lipton teabag on the side, so best bet, go to 7/11 and buy tea bags (5 for 17 peso) the order hot water which is free (just tip the guy) :)
The Aircon in all 4 rooms I have stayed was noisy and clunky and drips water so it sounds like rain when you use it :/ These need updating or servicing
For the first 2 nights I had no WI-FI on the 4th floor, so I had to move to 3rd floor.
The staff in this Hotel are the only reason I stayed, there was the guy delivering my food, I forget his name, but on the last day I gave him a good tip as a thank you, he was very helpful and got whatever I asked for without any hassle.
The girls on the reception are so nice and helpful, Anna was so nice and helpful, always smiling and always doing all she could to make the stay enjoyable, she deserves a pay rise (I hope her boss sees this)
I would love to see this Hotel updated and fixed up as its location and staff make it great, but the decor and old worn out look and dirty floors and windows put me off going back :/
There is a new Novotel being built (They own Eurotel) so maybe its being replaced?
I hope not, just modernise this one, and stop the 12 hour stays, make it a proper hotel.
I am sure I will stay here again, but not sure I will stay for a week in future, maybe a night or 2 at the most unless its updated :/
