It's run by friendly Mrs Kim who is more than happy to help with queries. Rooms facing the front of the hotel are slightly larger, and more expensive, than the back-facing rooms and have a small, two-person balcony overlooking the quiet street. All rooms have WiFi, air-con, windows, cable TV, and a small fridge with a minibar. Discounts are offered if you refuse amenities, such as not using the air-con, and a small discount is offered to the large sixth floor room for not using the elevator. They have a notorious reputation for overbooking and Travelfish.org readers have complained of reservations not being honoured, so make sure you confirm before arrival — maybe twice for good measure.
