Nice to have access to the amenities: study room, pool room, laundry room, kitchen, and spar next door. Our room faced a narrow alleyway between two residential buildings and was near the main entrance to the complex. The sound of people coming back from parties at all hours of the night was amplified by the tunnel effect and we were wakened up every night of our week-long stay. Try to ask for a room outside of that area.

Not a hotel at all - misleading
This place is not a hotel, it's some kind of student housing, in good condition but very tight rooms, no room cleaning, no restaurant and except for a convenient store on its premises, no restaurants nearby at all!
