I stay at these hotels because of the price point, $40 all in. But best to keep your expectations in check. The room was OK, air conditioning worked, clean sheets and towels provided, even complimentary water and coffee. The problem is the staff, who by every measure, hate their jobs. Expect that cold glare if you interrupt them looking at their phones, even though they are supposed to be working and have the rest of 3/4 of an hour doing junk all. Does this matter ? Not if you understand and expect nothing from them. Is it good service - no of course not. Can they think independently to solve a problem you may have - nope. Will they really try - nope. I'm speaking mostly about reception. Housekeeping was friendlier, but communicating was a problem.
I always think, maybe there's a language problem ? It's part of it, but the bigger notion is that they don't think of themselves representing the hotel and just want you to go away because their phone is beckoning. It's their country I know, but if you don't want to interact with people, don't be in a service business. For me, I certainly don't want an unhappy or surly man or women waiting on me (usually at reception it's a women and that's usually more than fine).
Again the solution - either stay at a better hotel known for service or expect nothing from them. You'll be happier and have a better vacation. Plus you only spent $40 / night or less than $300 staying there for the week ! With the money you saved, get a relaxing massage.
