Disliked: Staff & service
Stinky rooms.
Stinky room. I think I was given an old smoking room. Room had a bad smell of cigarette. I then asked to change a room but first it was refused by unfriendly front-desk person. After demanding change another time they accepted. A new room was promised to be ready by 12:30pm but it was delayed about 1,5hours. Not so good service.
