We checked in at about midnight from a 6-hour flight and although the reception person was accomodating, the room wasn't great. It was really OLD and we got 2 beds. The 2 beds were literally 2 separate beds pushed together. Although this is ok as we've stayed in other hotesl with this set-up, this one was bad - separate bed sheets and even when pushed together would slide off to opposite ends. The bathroom was really DIRTY with a lot of stains on the bath tub - not to mention mould stains on the shower curtain and the room gave me the creeps. If you are very sensitive to smells and dust, don't stay here. Only saving grace was the breakfast buffet as we got a taste of some good curry. The people were accomodating and friendly even when we had requested to be transfered to a better room with 1 bed.
