On the bright side:
The hotel is ideally located for day tours in the nature since it's in the North. I missed the Botanical Gardens, but they are very close as well apparently. (And a 5-10 min drive to the airport.)
The rooms have both effective and quiet air conditioning and ventilation which are important to keep the humidity in check. The bed was comfy, the complementary tea and coffee as well as soap in the room were nice features.
Very handy as well: a 24h grocer's, a bottle shop, an extra laundromat, a nice Indian restaurant as well as diverse other take-away food places, including fish'n chips, just round the corner.
On the not-so-bright side:
I had the feeling that I was annoying one staff member with every question I had and was provided as little information/help as possible. Maybe an intercultural issue? Everyone else in the team was super friendly and helpful though.
Also, I was unlucky to stay in a room (1B) without proper wall to the next room and there was no privacy: one can hear what's happening on the other side so clearly, I could understand every word of the conversations of my neighbour.
Besides, there was a power outage causing all plug sockets to be down one night, including for fridge and TV. I was in the middle of an interesting documentary when this happened. I believe it was due to something my neighbour did.
Finally: the internet connection is so poor, I used the nearby restaurant one to go online.
All in all, I may just have had some bad luck
