The lobby was so nice, but the room hallways & the bathroom lamps bring us back to the early 20s old school vibe.

The hotel and facilities actually are a bit old. But overall it is worth to stay with this price. One thing to complain is about wifi signal is not strong enough. The room that is located far from wifi router totally cannot receive any wifi signal.
