Stayed here for 2 nights. Check-in staff in the afternoon were friendly and helpful. A lady at the front desk was snappy and grumpy even though I was polite the whole time when asking her a question. Not a single smile. And she wasnt having a bad day. Encountered this both mornings.
The hotel itself tried to have a european theme going and im sure it was lovely once upon a time.
Dinner buffet looked appetizing with an array of food even though we didnt eat there. Breakfast tries to have food for every taste. Breads, juices (too sweet) , coffees, teas, eggs 2 ways, bacon, mini sausages, chinese style, vegetarian bfast, japanese bfast, 3 types of fruit which consisted of grape fruit, guavas and oranges which had many pips and a salad bar with 4 to 5 different dressings. Not a bad spread.
Our room was on the 21st floor and had a view of the city. Too bad most houses and buildings were tin shack roofs. It was clean and comfortable complimentary water, coffee and tea. Website says there was complimentary fruit but they were no where to be seen. No room service menu. Fresh towels daily and the cleaning lady was super friendly. She should be working at front desk instead. The shower was very weak and shower head was spritzing water all over the place. If you want to charge your phone, you need to crawl under tables and unplug fridges and tvs to find an available outlet. No wall socket by the bed either.
Room and hotel is clean on the surface but wouldnt pass the white glove test. Hasnt had any thorough cleaning or renovations in some time.
