The beds and pillows were very comfortable, and there was decent water pressure in shower. It was a little noisy, but it was Chinese New Year so you wouldn't have found a quiet corner anywhere in the country. The second night was quiet enough.
The staff were a little disappointing totally without enthusiasm and giving the impression that they didn't want to be bothered. I asked for an extra pillow for each of us - always do, as if we're lying on the bed watching TV, reading or on the computer two pillows are far more comfortable than one. It seems we inconvenienced the man by asking - he said if he could find some we could have them. That was quite unnecessary as the hotel was far from full and there would have been pillows galore. Perhaps he'd been speaking to the porter (see below) but we did get them.
There is a wet market a couple of minutes walk away and several very small mini marts and a convenience store on the way. The bus station is less than two minutes walk, and in getting there you pass literally dozens of local and western bars and eateries. The area itself is backpackerville, which means plenty of low priced food stalls and cheap grog. The downtown area is about a 45 minute walk - you could probably do it in about half that time, but the traffic and very odd people around doing very odd things kept slowing us down to watch the showsl
While we couldn't find fault with the hotel itself, there is better value out there, so I can see no reason for us to return.
We could however find fault with the staff - especially the porter who accompanied us to our room (our bags are on wheels, and we never let anyone else wheel them) then proceeded to hang around for a full 5 minuets for his tip before giving up. As I've mentioned before, tipping is an insidious American habit who have left peoples which have no culture of tipping getting into a strop if they don't get one. We're English. English don't tip. We lived in Australia for 20 years. Australians doubly don't tip. Please stop tipping. You're encouraging them to expect it from everyone.
