Very nice but
Maybe it’s their weird door lock system, but the whole place lack welcoming human touch and I felt like it was run by a robot.

Room was spacious and new. Host provided us a free mobile phone with free Internet service and 30mins free mobile hotspot. We could take the phone with us on the duration of the trip. Bed was very comfortable. Laundry was easy to use and the hotel provided detergent. Hotel did not offer check bag after we checked out. What we didn't like was one day the cleaning staff just came in the room without knocking. He unlocked the door with the 4 digit pin and walked in the room without introduction or knocking. I was still in my underwear. I asked if he needed any help and he said he just came in to look at the bamboo mat. He took a look after walking in and then left. At the time we didn't even know who he was. He didn't introduce himself nor did he just leave immediately.
