Pros room very clean and new bathroom Sheets very crisp Complimentary WiFi 1G Cons tea&coffee making facilities, hair dryer, bedside table, phone(for emergency) not available in the room Bathroom seriously small. Shower booth extremely small Shower head keep falling off due to water pressure Hand basin very small and there's no space to put your toiletries. I mean really no space at all Heater in the room very noisy and you could hear heater running next door as well No reception staff available It clearly says on the booking confirmation letter that after 8pm checkin is not available and you will have to check in the next morning No staff available Overall I felt that this place is over priced
