3.8 Mediocre
Cons: I paid for a king room but I was told that there are no King rooms on arrival and I was given a standard double room at the same price.The room was noisy. I thought it was the aircon and I contacted reception about 8pm and they said someone is on their way but no one arrived before I fell asleep at 10:30pm. By that time I had managed to switch off the aircon and I realised the noise is coming from some kind of motor outside that went on for a long period and then shut off for a few minutes at a time repeatedly through the night. Carpets were filthy and someone else's hair was on the toilet seat and on the shower floor. Toilet dripped all night. I was exhausted from travel and the days events so I just went to sleep and left asap the next morning.
