I requested to view room before booking in to check if I liked the place. My request was denied and I ended up paying without viewing. When I got to room it was very small and crampy and I was really disappointed.

The reception staff were so friendly and welcoming....The downside of my visit was the floor I was in, it was noisy because my room was close to the laundry and staff made noise through out. The shower head only excreted water through 3 holes, the rest of the holes were blocked.

I stayed at hotel for 3 nights in a triple room and I was very disappointed. At the reception my daughter found a big cockroach walking on the Christmas tree. Room was dirty and smells cigarette and cockroach. I think I will never stay there again.
