Overpriced for the quality
I understand that the current COVID situation makes serving food very difficult but the buffet system and queueing was very tedious and we have definitely seen better solutions in other hotels we have stayed in on our trip. The air-conditioning in our room was very noisy and we asked several times to get it repaired to no avail. I’m not sure how this hotel can be rated five stars as all the four-star hotels we stayed in has shown considerably higher level of service and quality
