This one is a difficult hotel to review. For about $25 you can get a twin room with ensuite bathroom, airconditioning, television, access to swimming pool, free wifi in the hotel lobby, free breakfast and parking. I found the sleeping area quite adequate with comfortable beds, clean sheets and no bugs. The aircon worked wonderfully, even on a steamy wet night. The staff are friendly and efficient and the lobby is spacious and comfortable to sit in. The wifi in the lobby is fast and the swimming pool is good to cool down in on a hot day. The hotel is also in a good location so you can walk to the big park in the centre of the city for plenty of food options.
The hotel is definitely dated and in need of a bit of work. It is as though someone said "this was the best hotel so we won't change anything". The toilet (western toilet) in my ensuite didn't flush. But having a western toilet in a hotel is a good start and I could use the water hose to manually flush the toilet.
I probably wouldn't pay more than the $25 a night for the cheapest room because then I wouldn't be happy with the quality. But for a twin room it is okay value for the price.
