    I reserved my room without noticing there was no AC till after. We will be there on April 15th for 2 days, and none of us have great heat tolerance and need cool rooms to sleep. Has anyone stayed there recently and was it bearable?

    The weather is perfect (early March) so no AC needed. Also, no motorbike sounds. This must have been an unfortunate special occasion.
