I don't understand why this place has 4.9 stars, it was a dump don't waste your time or money. This place was not "cozy" or "comfortable" or "clean"
You walk down an alley next to the subway to find the place, then you inside the "front door" you are greated with a sign telling you that you have to leave your bags at the elevator then go up to reception to check-in. The elevator stops between floors so either way you have to climb a flight of stairs to get to your floor, it's also a tiny elevator along with the building itself. The room was super small, a bed and two cabinets for clothes. No other furniture to sit on and the bed was two twin beds pushed together, not to mention it's basically like sleeping on a soft marble floor, also our bed was clearly not washed after the last guest as it was dirty. Speaking of the floor... You aren't supposed to wear your shoes into the room, in fact there is a small entry floor that's lower than the regular floor in order to take off your shoes. The floors are heated and the only way to control them is using the Rinai water heater controller which controls the shower too so you have to be careful when you need to take a shower as it might be cold..
The towels they provided were basically wash cloths, you had to go to the front desk and ask for larger towels, also they stunk. They weren't fresh and clean either, like the rest of the room.
The bathroom was also small and doubled as the shower, so plus one start for being able to go to the bathroom and shower at the same time, however be careful not to get your toilet paper wet!!
I would say the bathroom and toilet were the cleanest part, only because i turned the water up very very hot and wash everything down.
Other things to consider, we stayed with another couple and their room was next to ours at the end but we learned quickly that because the building and hallway are so small you can't open both doors at the same time... plus each door has a foot stop so imagine your neighbor opens their door and puts the foot-stop down and forgets... your trapped!
They did provide a dental kit and soap, along with a used bar of soap from the previous tenant/guest (which verifies the above statement about the bed not being cleaned)
Also you are responsible for leaving your towels in a small tub at the end of the hallway along with your own trash, I just left that in my room since they never bothers to clean the bed, then you have to go to the front desk and request more "clean" towels.
Each room has it's own 20" flatscreen TV, so that's a plus. 20" ain't much but when you are only 4 feet away from the TV it doesn't matter.
I found the room also had a distinct odor, which sometimes got better or worse depending on if I left the window open or not so I left it open most of the time, which became an issue as at around 3:00am as I was tossing and turning on the concrete bed, I was serenaded by the alley cats whaling for many hours.
They provide wireless in every room, literally... Every room has it's own wireless access point under the bed. I don't like the idea of sleeping that close to a wireless access point so I unplugged mine.
I would say the highlights of this "hotel" were that the staff was friendly and helpful and spoke english well. Also they allowed us to "take over" the lounge are to watch TV and even turned off the music for us, like I said the staff were very friendly. The other bonus was the price, $30-$40/night..
For that price it's no wonder how awful this place is to stay. Check was easy, basically you put your room card (just a business card with your room # and door code) in a basket and leave. Which I'm pretty sure they don't change the door code after each guest... which is pretty scary in my opinion
I included pictures of the room and lobby to show that I actually DID stay at this dump for two nights!
