The rooms themselves were modern. nice, comfy bed, tea making facilities etc, nice lighting. But major problems were:
A. the use of hollow cheap doors, badly fitted, not on door closers. A proper boutique hotel would have a solid, well-fitting door on a self closer to prevent people slamming them. And boy did they. At 4am, 5am, 6am, and being so thin we could hear their conversations. And why are the corridors not carpeted? They made the suitcases being pulled along deafening.
B. the “city view balcony” as advertised was really just an access to the air con compressor unit which meant it was super hot, plus the view was of dingy back streets in a dodgy neighbourhood. (See pic). Also it was the only natural light so quite dark in the room. If you just want a place to crash and are prepared to wear earplugs the rooms are fine. It’s really close to the excellent night market too.
C. There was no hot water. Nada. We were lucky it’s so hot here it didn’t matter, despite the initial yelp as you got under the cold shower!
Otherwise the staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was “ok”.
Disappointing, but nothing that can’t be fixed.
