The room smells bad. If it was not the non-refundable policy I would have canceled my reservation in the a minute of being there. The building is too gross and the front desk lady has language barrier. I would not recommend for anyone.

Decided not to say after finding there was no hot water and that the bed had a cigarette burn in the blanket. Did not check reviews beforehand unfortunately: many bad reviews for the last several months. The person at the desk was very helpful and kind. We have no complaints about her.
