Don’t be fooled by all the positive reviews online, just probably put up by the owners. When it’s cheap, there’s definitely a catch! We booked one room for $45/night and another for $50/night for 4 pax through www.asiarooms.com.
The outside: You have to walk through filthy alleyways to reach Block D. There you’ll find two lifts, one for odd numbers and another for even nos. Once we reached 7th floor, the guesthouse had prison-like doors & CCTV along the hallways, presumably for safety. When we arrived, our room wasn’t ready so we had to wait for a few minutes.
The inside: It's like the whole floor was partitioned into rooms. Our booking was a double occupancy room but what was provided seemed to fit only one. So what we got seemed more like a bedspace. The room was like a comfort room converted into a bedroom. The walls & floor are in white tiles. It’s a tiny claustrophobic room without a window.
I definitely would NOT recommend this place. I can’t believe that most reviews online are positive when in fact the only positive you can find with this place is their location.
YES, it’s accessible. YES, you’ll just sleep on it for the night BUT don’t we all want to have a good comfy room to sleep on after a tiring day of walking the city?
Stayed March 2011.
Unique Quality: No outstanding qualities I can think of.
