8/10 Very good

My stay there was very short, one night could not give me a good chance to evaluate the property. The room was clean, the mattresses are very comfortable. Although I consider the room size is small for a twin bedroom, but all in all it is considered a good experience. Nothing interrupted my relaxation time. The hotel is very close to one shopping mall, and is in a safe area.

8/10 Very good

I liked that it had a pool, breakfast included, and it had internet. I did not like that the pool was dirty. Leaves are always blowing in from the trees. Unavoidable, but some effort to clear periodically would have been nice. Internet was slow and always disconnecting. It was challenging to even just check emails. Food was good, but it did not change day to day. Maybe more variety would improve it.
