I recently spent a night in this "hotel" recently. From the outside the building appears bright- it's a lovely lime green and yellow- you can't miss it. It is close to the fast food joints and the airport but those are the only perks in my opinion. The room left much to be desired- where to begin. It was not very clean. The blankets were stained and looked a little dingy. The springs in the mattress almost impaled me. Over my head there was a crack in the vinyl "sky roof" so all night I worried about some creature falling on me. Despite this I did not notice any critters or ants, so luckily I was spared. The window panes were not very secure and there was a large gap present. All night I could hear the wind rattling and whistling. It was the most disconcerting noise.
The towels were maybe clean. The shower was not clean, there was obvious dirt on the tiled floor. I showered in my flip flops. The shower curtains had mold. The water was hot and the toilet flushed so that was priceless.
The continental breakfast was decent. My coffee cup was stained and my glass was maybe washed. The food was what was expected- no complaints there.
The staff spoke english and was pleasant enough. They were kind enough to call for a cab which came quickly. It was ~3500 colones for the trip to the airport. The night cost about $50. the reservation was made by someone else. In retrospect I would have spent more money for peace of mind and a cleaner room.
