Privacy & gud room service . coordination & supportive attitude of staff
It was not clear to the staff to which price the booking was set. Up to now I am not certain if I will be charged twice.
It is good property and well equiped rooms. It is totaly mis-managed start from reception through house keeping.
An excellent hotel,with all top class facilities.
Should improve upon d service,also d list of items on menu card is very small,giving no choice,so may be losing clientale for d restaurant
1. No Wifi internet access which has caused me lots of inconvenience during my business trip.
Too much mosquitoes in the lobby waiting hall.
Location and the lobby. Helpful receptionist and bellboy. But nothing more than this...
Run down, worn and torn appearance. Neglected facilities. Disastrous fitness room was in ruins, broken ceiling and dust everywhere. Rooftop pool is full of unclean water - totally unfit for swimming. No WiFi, in contrast to what is advertised.
One of the worst hotels I have stayed in. Nothing was clean inside the room, the bedsheets were old n stained. The toilets were unclean. Horrible room service. Even the menu cards had grease on them. I would not recommend this hotel to any traveler.
The Room was clean.
Very bad Breakfast, found cockroaches in the room, corridor was smelling. Can find better hotel nearby.
Though the facilities were poor, the reception desk staff tried their best to help.
1) Mosquitoes & cockroaches in the room. 2) house keeping totally neglected. 3) facilities on paper either absent or not working eg. electric kettle, electronic safe. 4) Unclean room & towels. No training given to the newly appointed house keeping staff. 5) Room service served lukewarm coffee in unleaded thermos. 6) Unclean glasses & cups in the room.
