    expensive for its room condition
    The bathroom is old. Wall paper were peeling under bathroom sink. Bathroom is kinda small. The entire room is good in size. No central air, it still uses old type of air conditioning unit sat on floor. The one that gets me is this room has no curtain that block the sunlight from coming through. It just has see through/sheer curtain. I wouldn’t book this hotel again.
