Gaudy bed spreads, dodgy paint jobs and strange decorations all combine to make this place feel a bit old and a bit out of touch with what customers want.
As well as the gaudiness, some of the surfaces in the rooms are a bit dirty making things feel even worse. The cheaper rooms are basic with cold water squat toilet bathrooms and the most expensive containing air-con and hot water. But even in the most expensive rooms gaudiness persists and as a result they don't represent good value for money. In the high season when the place is allegedly packed out, we can imagine a social atmosphere in the pleasant common areas, but in low season, it is positively dead. Use this place as a backup, not as your first choice.
