Poor 2.0
The rooms are terrible. Needs a revamp.
Kriantha, us2 night trip with friends
Very Good 8.0
Overall stay was fabulous. Location is perfect. However, rooms were only cleaned upon request the night before. I requested my room be cleaned on Saturday however upon arrival back to my room on Saturday at 5pm, it was still not cleaned, no change of towels either. I was told that the staff had already left. That was quite frustrating.

Fair 4.0
Never again!
We have been to the hotel before and it okey but I feel they are letting go of it. In desperate need of maintenance. We didn’t receive one room service/clean in 3 days. The room was acceptable but the floor was dirty. The staff was uninformed and had his pants undone with his pants button open. Very unprofessional. For the price.. I will not stay there again.

Pictures on online are not a true reflection on actual room. Facilities in desperate need of upgrade. Room was tiny and needs upgrade.

Poor 2.0
lousy sloppy service
Raining when we arrived. Get wet filling in the compulsory gate register. Security had no umbrella and insisted that i fill in the wet book. Had to find a porter. Reception mediocre. Noisy neighbor and asked porter to get management to address it. didn't happen. Cleaning staff bothered us early. Hair dryer broken and replacement came too late after waiting endlessly. All in all, louse service at every level.
