Clean and Cosy
Guests felt the rooms to be clean and cosy
during their stay. The rooms and bathrooms were nicely cleaned by housekeeping,
while the beds were comfortable to sleep on. The Japanese-style rooms were of
good quality and had extra sitting space.
The hotel is near metro stations, the markets
and the shopping areas. It is also close to the river are where there are
plenty of restaurants, and the Buddhist temples are also close by. The
attractions of the city are not too far from the hotel.
Guests had various thoughts concerning the
bad smells that emanated in the hotel. From smoking to drainage smells, they
did not like the strong odours that really bothered their stay. The rooms also
smelled of drainage.
No Eating Options
The hotel does not have any eating options
on-site. Guests would have preferred to have breakfast available and a
restaurant for those times when they did not feel like eating out.
Guests traveling as a couple or with families found the rooms to be too small. It was difficult to stay in the rooms with the luggage and to move around comfortably. They felt it was a stuffy place that was good just for sleeping.
