After we left the airport it took about 40 minutes to get to the hotel, which was quite nice from the outside. Here’s a view of the pillar, with camera effects (I wasn’t thinking of posting a trip report until now):

It’s a quite nice 4 star hotel, and I wasn’t really expecting much due to the price. We went to our room and I had a look at my surprisingly new room. There was wifi, for a start.

There was breakfast, and it was Chinese style (with a few Western-inspired things such as hash browns, etc.) located in the buffet. There were a lot of spelling mistakes, and guess where that went?!
There were a few events. The first one was me going to another room without my key, and I called the management from the other room. I wondered where they stayed through the night, because they were there in less than a minute, which is impressive.
Again, they came in less than a minute when the toilet plugged, although it took double the time to take whatever was stuck in there out.
Overall, despite the very uneventful stay, this was a really nice hotel, and I think it was worth more than the price. For fifteen days I never felt uncomfortable. Stay tuned!
