3.4 Poor
Pros:The lobby looks beautiful but it can't help my experience staying at this hotel
Cons:No AC, my room even don't have a ceiling fan and I have to request a fan. The photo of the lobby is trying to seduce us to think the hotel is that good but it is NOT. The room is small, old although the shared bathroom is quite clean ( better than the private one) We got a room with private bathroom so the room is so small and we don't even have enough space to walk. The bathroom is really old although clean
