2/5

    On the outside, it is indeed a five star hotel but the quality of the infastructure was not great. In particular, the room lacks adequete soundproofing. Noise from the corridor and the lobby echoes into the room. Took me multiple visits to the reception to finally get my request for dental and shaving kit delivered. It’s a really nice place but I’m not sure the quality is worth the price.

      • Liked: Staff & service
      • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

      The first room we checked into was filthy, finger prints everywhere stains on the sofa and ottoman finger nail clippings on the bathroom floor along with glitter, a hair band under the bed side table etc The second room we put into had a faulty air conditioning system I set the temp at 19.5 degrees and went to bed. I woke at 2am to a room temp of 26 degrees and I couldn’t lower the temp On the control unit. I had to switch off the unit open both the window and balcony doors wide and made a bed on the floor near the door, them the only thing I had to contend with was the traffic noise......
