          I read many reviews about this hotel. Most of them commented on the dirtiness and awful musty smell of the rooms. Should I be concerned? Has the hotel improved on its cleanliness?

          The hotel looked dated, and there were some stains on the wall outside my room. However, my room was not dirty or musty. And you can always request for a change should you be unhappy with its situation.
