We were less than impressed with this establishment. We found the male night desk attendant indifferent and generally unhelpful. They still allow smoking in the dining area which is open to the lobby. Removing ashtrays of butts in order to sit for breakfast is a turn-off. Also be warned: there is a train track very nearby and that is one noisy beast early every morning and evening. I mean it blasts its horn repeatedly at every street it crosses. There was no fan in the room and with no AC or cross-breeze it was uncomfortable. No screens on the windows so we were badly bitten by mosquitoes during the night. A fan might have helped with that as well. Breakfast was adequate but certainly not appetizing. My over-all impression was that management needs to put more enthusiasm, energy and creativity into this place.
