The room is smelly and the wifi completely sucks. Very upset. The surrounding is quiet in the morning. It is difficult for you to look for food outside. The air conditioner can't be controlled well. Not advisable for business travelers.

The rooms themselves were actually fine. But I was there for a quick visit and needed more efficiency. The whole process around paying the deposit for the room access card is ridiculous. Those cards are hardly worth anything nowadays and one must wait during an already lengthy check-in process for forms to be filled out and (only) cash paid. And...

- I have been to this hotel like 6th time already, it's getting lack of maintenance. E.g. carpet is getting more stains and bedsheets are getting more used. - Budget, yet spacious room. Away from noises. - Wifi might not work best in the room. It works good in the lobby. - Parking is fine. Free parking outside (without shades).

Overall the chain of Celyn Hotel is bad, starting with the dirty room, smelly pillow, the dusty and old carpet, and small cockroaches crawling at night, and you thought it was bad enough at night. But when morning come, the free breakfast was even terrible, can you imagine a hotel serving maggi mees fried noodles, cheap hotdogs, and a pot...

Is a hotel where you will never need to worry for food around (or even good food). 15 to 20 minutes away from town. Small at the lobby but look better in room. Room facilities still need improvement. Cleanliness is only up to 3 star. Hairs can still found on the carpet and bed after room service. Overall a decent...

We moved here from Lavender Lodge as the room we had there, a double with AC and Bathroom, was quite frankly a joke. To sit on the toilet you had to sit sideways as the bathroom was so small, the already pathetic breakfast on the second day suddenly ran out of fruit and so it goes on and on. So,...
