6/10 Good

No frills, basically a bed and a shower.
This is a no frills hotel. I am not sure if it was a language issue or a cultural issue, but none of my requests were met. I asked for a wake up call. It never came. I asked for a taxi to be called, I ended up having to catch one on my own on the street. The hotel is a few blocks from an ATM and super market. Places to eat are a bit further away. Once I was shown how the television worked, it operated fine.

2/10 Poor

Hotel In residential Area
The Stay was terrible at this place. First it was written as Free Airport Shuttle. No shuttle provided. The rooms are very small and the Washroom is so small that a large person cannot fit.Two out of three days the Internet was not working. Two out of three days the Television was not working. The tap in the washroom was continuously leaking and they do not repair. Third Day the Air conditioning stopped working. After complaining they checked and changed the room. There there was no electricity for most part of the night. The Power DB for three rooms was in another room where a couple was staying. Later in the morning, almost for four hours, no body attended even to the calls that there was no power. Got checked out and cannot give me a Final Bill. They want to deduct the Expedia Commission and give me the final bill which I did not accept. How can I take a bill for less than what I paid? And no free shuttle to Airport also. They want to charge for that. There is no meaning in mentioning Free Airport Shuttle if it was not there. Totally disgusted with both Expedia and also the Hotel Stay.
