I'm so glad that we still decided to book this hotel after reading some of the reviews, the hotel was really good after all! Metro station is about 2 mins walk and the bus stop is just right inftont

Relaxing but needs a cleaning and better breakfast
Check in was fast and easy. Comfortable bed and a deep tub make for a great way to relax after a day of walking. It would be a good idea to deep clean between visitors. Got to my room and there's long strands of brown hair on the provided hairbrushes and on the bedding (note: I have short blue hair). The bathtub has mold growing around the edges and the dip in between tub and wall has a pool of water in it, letting water collect. The site also claims a free English breakfast with your stay, but your options are toast with 3 choices of toppings, tea or coffee, and little packets of crackers/biscuits. Very bare minimum effort.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
You get what you paid for. Although it was cheap, i liked how close it is to a subway station, how quiet the hotel was, the staff was neither rude nor friendly which i didnt mind whether they greeted me or not. The bathroom had mold, seemed like they just made the bed and never changed the sheets, "breakfast" was only a toast and tea or milk or coffee (i didnt mind the breakfast so much)

Both Urban and Friendly
It was a nice little hotel. Friendly and attentive staff. Close to both the subway, bus stop and convenience store. I had the added bonus of a tub. Had the best sleep away at a hotel.
