We booked two rooms, one of which was a corner room (more spacious). Could hear some traffic noise but not bothersome for sleep. The temperature felt to be well-regulated with AC and optional fan. The beds were comfortable/not sagging and bathrooms were very clean. The washing basin was quite small but not an issue for us. Staff was friendly.
