    Very near to airport. Uber is easier than meter taxi. Breakfast is so so. Room is clean. Aircon is cold. Service is slow but reception is cute. Building another lift is hidden. Nice comfortable lobby.

    This was the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in, and I have traveled quite a bit throughout Asia. It reeked terribly; the carpeted stained and nasty; the sheets had hairs in them. Mold growing in the bathroom. The shower lacks a door. The air...More
