Our bathroom was filled with the smell of smoke and the toilet had multiple stains. The glasses in the bathroom were barely cleaned before check-in. Upon telling the reception staff about the same, a member of the housekeeping staff was sent to our room to clean the bathroom glass in front of us. As for the toilet stains, we were told nothing could be done about it. The entire floor rug/mattress on our floor was dirty and looked like it hadn’t been vacuumed for months. The only good thing about the place was that it was quite spacious. All in all, a big downer!

My 2nd visit to this hotel. Staying for 3D2N. This visit was a disappointment. This hotel lacks maintenance. Hotel hallway, carpet looks dirty and the wall looks kinda old. Soundproof of the rooms was bad, you could hear people walking at the hallway or next door TV sound. Cleaniness is an issue too, obviously the cleaner are not doing their job well. I also did show them the picture and told them to clean it up on the 2nd day, sadly no action was taken. Toilet bowl is not working properly is not flushing down properly, happened to me on the 2nd day and 3rd day. Room is kinda dim. Breakfast selection and taste is another disappointment as a 4 Stars Hotel. Air Cond is a hit or miss kinda thing, could be very cold or just alright. Parking is challenging. Location is good thou. This hotel does not worth price and stars.
