Nice service and clean

nice location but difficult to find parking, not recommended for the car driver, but good for backpackers


    Pleasant staff, satisfactory for those on a budget

    We upgraded our room to a larger one prior to arriving and the room we got was still extremely small. We then upgraded to the largest one in the hotel and this room was a good size, it was also in better condition than the previous room. There is no housekeeping and as we were staying in the same room for 5 days we asked for a change of linen and towels which the staff gladly provided. The location is great and we were there during the mooncake festivities which was fortuitous. We had booked an excursion and when the driver came to collect us and provided the receptionist with our names to call us she did not and we missed out on this arrangement. The excursion company reported that the receptionist was not helpful, fortunately we could re-arrange this. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful generally. There was no bistro next to this hotel as other reviews suggest - this is a shame as there was no access to on-site food or hot drinks. There is a kettle but no tea or coffee provided. It would be helpful to have a communal fridge and micro-wave for guests to store water etc in and to warm food. Generally a satisfactory stay which is good for those on a budget

    4/5 Good
