6/10 Good

Good be better
Large room but : no electric socket and switch next to the bed which is not convenient to use your cell phone mean while it's charging. The TV did not work simply because the plug is not compatible with the socket. No lift, I had two heavy bag to carry to the 3d floor. Overall it s pretty expensive compared to others.

6/10 Good

It was overall a bit underwhelming, not well maintained and had a bit of an odd smell in the lobby—maybe mildew. There is not much located near this hotel and it does not have a restaurant or any other amenities aside from a Thai massage parlor that is not affiliated with the hotel. The Thai massage was phenomenal. Pertama Lodge was not the worst place I have stayed in but it also does not offer much value for money spent.
