I understand this is a budget hotel. I had low expectations when arriving. I arrived late and upon checkin was given a room with no window (even though i requested one). It felt like i was sleeping in a prison cell and the bed was VERY hard. The second day i requested a better room. I was moved to a better room with window. It was much nicer but again the bed was super hard and the Acoustics are horrible, I could hear cars all night beeping and other residents ect... long stort short. I went to the manager with this and politely requested refund. He completely denied the idea. I asked for 50 percent back and it was a big no. I am not a picky traveler. I have stayed in budget hotels before. If you are okay with loud noises and a hard bed this maybe a good option for you. On a plus note the front desk staff were very friendly people. Stay clear of this place! Spend the extra 20 and get something much nicer!
