Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Hi, Rooms are being cleaned every other day. At this point in time where there is Corona virus risk everywhere, this is not acceptable.Cleanliness should be key Also hotel was full of Japanese people where the corona case is also outbroken in that country. I believe they do not care about the virus anymore. Apart from these, there were hardly any utensils to hold even bread. Again very bad judgement when everyone is extremely sensitive.
