This the first time I'm giving a terrible rating to any establishment I believe, but if not for a friend's wedding at a restaurant nearby, personally, if I had a choice, there was no way I would have booked this place with hindsight.
No hairdryer, no kettle, no cups, no slippers, no toiletries, no complementary beverages, no fridge, no safe, no breakfast, no nothing. No prominent signage of any sort for a tourist/visitor to locate this place.
Even though it's not exactly costly to stay here, this still is a residential area and while unlikely to have any 3 star hotel standards and above, for the money it's collecting, I'd still expect some basic good night sleep.
All the nice to haves and freebies aside, what this hotel does have in copious amounts is noise and cigarette smoke.
Day time, my room was directly facing some construction by the road with the occasional lumber of heavy vehicles or the honking of cars. The sun shines fiercely too, right on the wall backing the beds and the curtains are not ample to keep the heat and light out.
At night, better still, there's a KTV/karaoke outlet 3 floors below (would you believe it) with loud and powerful sounds systems that goes boom boom boom all night, well into the wee hours. The noise reverberates through the floors until the wooden floor we're stepping on vibrates as well. Doesn't help that the floor is not sturdy at all, it creaks to your steps and at certain spots somewhat worse.
And then there's the heavy cigarette smoke that lingers in the room. Is it through the airconditioning system, the corridors or from the KTV downstairs? Either ways, it was enough for my partner to complain and for me to wake up the following day with a sore throat. That's how bad it is. If all this is not enough, my neighbors keep slamming their doors at night and startles us from our sleep! And that is if we manage to doze off in the first place.
The general condition of the room is just only liveable, inferior spring mattresses, oldish looking and worn furniture, substandard levels of housekeeping...
Guess I've said enough. I have reason to believe that for the same price, one is able to find something better. Perhaps the only saving grace is that there are acceptable choices of food shops in the area and free WIFI for me to do this review now at 0317hrs while I'm kept awake by the bass from the karaoke!
Oh, you can skip the seemingly highly rated Mizuiro Ramen+Coffee outlet which is prominently seen on Google maps too... Quite disappointing to say the least.
