Dirty and smelly rooms without window

Dirty and smelly rooms without window. Noisy hotel and unfriendly staff. Hard plastic matras and the aircon was unadjustabul, so it was very cold in the room as well. Location was very good!

Not comfortable

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Before I booked this hotel, I have already known the room is small but location is good. However, 2 points made me uncomfortable and cannot sleep well. 1. The hotel is under renovation: very heavy smell of painting oil. 2. Sound of fire alert system: there is an alert system in every floor, it produces a “Bee” sound in every 10-12 seconds. If I know it’s under renovation, I won’t book this hotel.

The hotel is under renovation: very heavy smell of painting oil. 2. Sound of fire alert system: there is an alert system in every floor, it produces a “Bee” sound in every 10-12 seconds. (my room is a bit far away from it, I can imagine how poor if my room is just next to it) If I know it’s under renovation, I won’t book this hotel.

cheap and cheerful

if you just want a base for going out then hotel 81 is good value; but room far too smal to spend any amount of time in it other than sleeping. Generally clean and tidy, aircon worked, clean towels every day, but noisy road (but you can see that from the hotel photos before booking)

About 40cm of walking space around

About 40cm of walking space around the hard bed. There was no remote control for the TV though this could be accessed directly from the bed, along with the small dressing table which had mould growing in the draw. The aircon was too cold so the staff at reception turned it off as the room's control panel was not functioning. You could have your shower while sitting on the toilet. This would probably be the worst accommodation we have stayed in and there was no window in the room. I felt like I was sleeping in a coffin.

I was in this hotel for 3 nights,

I was in this hotel for 3 nights, rooms are very small., may be may short stay guests are around. rservation communication was not traceable for some time, but later confirmed by the manager. I would suggest that the check in time and check out time policy should be more friendly or at least intimated through the booking portals. Staff was friendly, and helpful...
