Property conditions & facilities




8/10 Very good

Like a Korean apartment...not a new one...
We heard the property was quite dated but the renovated rooms were decent (not great) so we booked the largest of the renovated rooms. We arrived at the property about an hour after check in began but was told it might be about 15 minutes longer since they haven't been able to clean and inspect all the rooms yet. Not ideal but understandable since we arrived on Sunday and they were cleaning up after a busy weekend. The property group was also running a special campaign via social media but I was told the eco-bottle I was supposed to receive for participating was out of stock. Oh well... We were granted free use of the kids play lounge while waiting since we had a one year old with us and after about 20 minutes we were informed that our room was now ready. We were impressed by the size of the space and the layout, along with the ac unit, but the spongey non slip bathmat thing was gringy feeling...hairs caught here and there...can't be properly toothpaste or toothbrushes. Otherwise, the property was great and our infant loved meeting and feeding the bunnies out back. They even gave us a complimentary hour late checkout to make up for our late check in. If we go back, I'd definitely stay again but might opt to stay for two nights instead of just one.

2/10 Poor

I checked in at 10pm to find my room nothing like the photo shown on app. As soon as I saw the room, it was so unacceptable condition I came back down to the front desk to change the room. The room was not only smelling moldy and smokey but all the furnitures were so old and beaten. The front desk offered us another room but this room was in the same condition and I couldn’t find the AC in the unit. We came down again and asked why the room didn’t have the AC and was in the same bad condition. The manager said, “ the AC is in the closet and if you don’t want to stay you can check out now and get your full refund. I have full authority to issue full refund” basically, he was telling us to get out I don’t want your money nor you staying here. We were so tired and upset. We decided to find another place to stay and left Kensington with manager’s name. tried to contact the manager at Kensington. They are not answering for past 3 days.
