Off the top, my only complaints about this hotel are that my A/C is weak (running full blast, barely keeping up and it's not that hot outside), the breakfast is lackluster (poor selection for Westerners) and you have to leave your key in the holder in the room to keep the A/C on during the day.
Alright, so you've read that much, I'll just hop into things:
The rooms-- they aren't fancy, but they are large and clean. Expect 'Motel 6' type luxury (although these rooms are larger and cleaner than Motel 6, but you get the idea)
The staff: I haven't dealt with them much, but when I do, they've been great.
The location: It's around the corner from Tesco's if you need a KFC fix, but it's also adjacent to a lively market (clothes, purses, food, watches, etc) and some decent outdoor restaurants (they are bare bones but the food is great).
The internet: It's free (yay!), and when it works, it is high speed (I'm streaming music right now). Sometimes though it can be intermittent and you have to reconnect or change networks every 20 or 30 minutes. Also, my iPod has some issues with the internet (for games and such)-- but general access on my iPod has no issues.
The breakfast: The food is good, but the selection for Westerners is limited (and it never varies from day to day). They have a good selection of Asian breakfast foods, but none of them really strike my fancy.
Um... I haven't really found anything besides my general complaints at the top of this review.
Totally eat at the outside restaurants just down from the hotel and next to the market. Be careful because the food can be really spicy(!!), but just let the staff know what you want and they'll help you order. I'm sometimes leery of food in the places I travel, but I've gone to this restaurant every night and I've had no issues with the food or staff.
