It's a great area surrounded by bars, eateries and the market. Close to walk to pretty much everything. Host was wonderful and cheery.

Poor 2.0
Honest review of the hotel condition
The hotel condition was very poor, dirty and old. My girlfriend and I did not dare to sleep on the bed because the bedsheet has hair and the blanket was dirty. We had to go buy our own bedsheet to place it on top of their bed. My girlfriend even got a skin irritation from staying at the hotel. There was no air circulation in the room, the room was stuffy. The bathrooms were the worst. The toilet bowl has stains and the rugs were so dirty. There were so many mirrors in the bathroom (creepy) and also in the room. I did not like the urine scent that I smell when I walk passed the 2nd floor. The laundry pile were left sitting by the hallway on the second floor for two days. This was by far the worst experience I ever had renting a hotel. I'm not usually a complainer at where I stayed but this was just too much to tolerate. It was not worth the price I paid for ($242 per night) and the condition was worse than a motel. We couldn't change to other hotels because everywhere was booked, so we had to sleep with our daytime clothes on. So for people who cares about cleaniness, this is definitely not the place to stay.
