So at first I have to say that that the customer service was excellent. We checked in early, everyone was very pleasant. The lobby was cute and cozy. The first problem we noticed was the elevator. Yes, you read it right. The elevator. Only one elevator for 9 floors. We waited for a good couple of minutes, before we got on, and were taken to the second floor, people came in, and we went back down to the basement, because the workers had to share the elevator with us. When we were finally going up to our floor, I actually thought the elevator wasn't moving. The elevator was obviously old. Trust me, you can count to three before you see the number change. We walked into a stifling hallway, which was very brightly and nicely designed, but it was small and cramped. The card wouldn't properly open the door, you had to try multiple times and wait for quite a while before the light went off and you could enter. The first thing you see is a giant low bed, less than a foot away from the door. It is the majority of the room. The furniture is brightly colored (the one red chair) against grey walls, and at first it looks very pleasant. When I first saw the tv, I was very happy about it's size until I turned it on. It may be large, but it's also very outdated. What they lack with entertainment they make up with free fast internet. The majority of the night was spent on my laptop watching netflix. The quality of the tv was grainy and stretched, the very few channels wouldn't work, and while we read there was movies you can purchase, we were wrong. The paper lamps, had holes in them and you could draw in the dust. The dim, yellow lighting right above your head was so painful, that I chose to sit in the dark. We looked for a window, and when we realized the black out shade was covering we gave a sigh of relief, because without a window the room feels like a box. We opened the shades, and what we thought would be a nice view of the city street, or at least a block, was a filthy fire escape and a black wall. There was cabbage on it, and no light would come into the room. The wall was right in front of your face. You can literally stretch out your body and almost touch it. It was filthy, and very claustrophobic. I was scared to keep the window open in fear of bugs, so I turned on the air conditioner. The noise was an annoying pounding and rhythmic thumping, that while I could tune it out with blasting the television, I couldn't fall asleep, and gave up, turning it off and sleeping with no window or ac. Every fifteen minutes, the toilet would scream. Yes. It was emit a loud whining noise, then when I first heard it, I thought it was someone calling for help. Soon, I wanted to yell for help too. I am happy I got a deal on expedia, because 200$, is still too much to pay for this room, which seems like a joke, and is very very far from "moderne".
