Light sleepers must avoid it
Had a lofty family room with 3 others for two nights. The room was smaller than the photos. 4 ppl shared one key is a bit ridiculous. Does the owner expected 4 adults stick together night and day? Pls change this inconvenient rule. The staffs were nice and the rooms are clean. Breakfast was nice as well. The biggest problem was the property is facing the street so it's really really noisy. Ppl in the neighbourhood enjoy karaoke and motorcycles drove through the night. I had earplugs on but still got waken up. Friends who didn't have earplugs almost stayed up the whole night. We found out later you can ask the hotel for earplugs, which was considerate. It was pouring on the very last night we stayed. The wall was leaking. My friend whose bed was closed to the window got water all over her face and woke up at 4am. It's a bit too much to anyone. Btw, the room was for 4 ppl but there were only 3 chairs and tiny side beds. The toilet only had 2 hooks. the hotel suggested us to reuse the towels but we found nowhere we can hang towels. Generally the design was not practical in many way.

great little getaway hotel
I had a single room with window. It has its own attached bathroom. The first night the room air conditioner did not function. The ceiling fan relived the discomfort. In the morning when I reported the problem, it was immediately rectified. The management offered me an upgrade to a larger room. I decided to stay in the same room. I had a comfortable night. The supervisor of the sweet cili offered lots of information and things to do. I would definitely rebook at this location.
